About: WORKING IN A COAL MINE - DEVO
I feel like a total loser. I pride myself on being an "oldies" expert, and by "oldies" I mean truly "oldies," as in, Lee Dorsey's original version of this song, which is an all-time classic. However, I grew up in the age of MTV and Devo, and I never knew that Devo covered this song. I only heard it TODAY, October 2, 2018, for the first time on Nashville, TN's local independent radio station. Thanks to the station, Lightning 100, for playing it. This version of the song has all the electricity of Devo mixed in with a true tip-of-the-hat to Dorsey's original. I can't stop listening to it; it's almost edible, it's so good. This song came out 37 years ago, and I am just now hearing it! Well, the unexpected surprise just goes to show that this world teems with gems waiting to be upturned. And music to me holds a lot more value and worth than actual gemstones, by the way.
HooRah!!! Coal jobs are coming back. Thank you Mien Feuhrer!!!!! MAGA.
Loving this version!
