"She's About A Mover" is annoying, but I do love "Dynamite Woman" and "Mendocino."

Well, it's hard to go wrong with a song about home (somehow Michael Buble managed to go wrong, though). I even like U2's "Van Diemen's Land" which a lot of hardcore U2 fans don't care for.

"Van Diemen's Land" was written and sung by The Edge... not Bono. It's only about a minute or so, though.

Great group. Doug Sahm was definitely an innovator, Mendocino and The Return of Doug Saldaņa were classic albums.

Wow, I just noticed the same thing. That can't be right, Future Rock Legends.

It is the same for Carole King I noticed.

Fixed them both -- thanks guys.

I am glad you added more artists, maybe it will give us something more to talk about than all the Madonna junk that seems to come up on here waaaaayyyy too much.

I always liked "Viking Girl" and "Dynamite Woman." Their best known song (can't understand why), "She's About a Mover" always sounds to me like a cross between Ray Charles and "She's a Woman" by the Beatles although I'm probably the only one who feels this way

No, Tahvo, that actually sounds pretty accurate, and why I find the song annoying. "She's A Woman" has never ranked among my favorite Beatle tunes.

Don't mind "She's a Woman" actually, and I consider myself a Ray Charles fan.
Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Friday, 11.25.11 @ 14:38pm
Just to clarify, wasn't saying you weren't a Ray Charles fan, just responding to my earlier post were I mentioned Ray Charles along with "She's a Woman."
Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Friday, 11.25.11 @ 14:41pm
Oh, no umbrage taken, Tahvo. I am indeed a Ray fan. Sounds like a cross of either "What'd I Say" or "I Got A Woman", with "She's A Woman." But I think when you include the fact that "She's A Woman" is far from my favorite Beatles record, and that annoying carousel-like organ line in between lines of the verses of "Mover", it adds up as to why that song annoys me so.

Thanks FRL for calling this to my attention. Its easy to forget they were at one time nominated, nearly 10 years ago. I wasn't that familiar with their music, except maybe their 2 big songs. By the way, I agree with the above comments about the similarities of 'She's About a Mover' and 'She's a Woman'. 'Mendocino' is truly an underrated song.
