Thanks man.

I quite like this although the 'boogy woogy' section is a bit corny. Also the slide guitarist looks like a house painter. Also I didn't realise until today, that George Thorogood deploys a stutter in his vocalisations.

Actually on reflection, the 'boogie' bit kind of ruins what is otherwise perfectly adequate entertainment.

George Thorogood and the Destroyers: One Bourbon, One Scotch and One Beer




That's a good one. Not sure what you call the "boogie woogie" section. The apparent improvisational bit with the horns does not work as well.

That is a great song. The part with her overdubbed harmony is sublime.

Another interesting cover by Disturbed:



The video is pretty interesting as well.

Who is the villain in the video--capitalist Nazis?

The super villain leader looks sort of like the guy from Monopoly....

only much fatter.

Dunno why the image of the most bare bones American fighter export, the F-5, is so disproportionately shown in popular media imagery.

I suspect it's leftover tendency from the Top Gun movie.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's one of the sexiest looking jets of the Cold War era, but there were only a few countries that actually planned to use it in a shooting war (Holland being the most driven in it's upgrades). In the US, where it was designed, we only used them for "Aggressor" squadrons to emulate small, lightweight, and nimble, but low tech Soviet-built point defense fighters (namely the MiG-21 and MiG-29).


Side note:

I recall seeing an interview with Chuck Yeager, during his elder years, in which they asked him which jet fighter was his most "enjoyable" to fly. He didn't hum & haw too long before saying the F-5. While it may have been fairly bare bones, especially regarding hi-tech shit, the little thing could obviously still boogie quite well.
