Walk Right In

Posted by shanoah on July 3, 2009

I’m not sure we want that as a theme, though, Sean. That would involve me repeatedly posting disco music…

Today, I thought I’d play a song from 1963, Walk Right In, being sung by the Rooftop Singers. Don’t feel like analyzing it too much, but it’s a fun song.

Now, what you may not realize is that that was a cover of Gus Canon’s Jug Stompers. And the original version by them sounds rather different…

Of course, the Rooftop Singers were hardly the last to cover it. Doctor Hook got in on the action on this song, as well.
