Of all my brother’s 45s I was most excited to inherit this one when he moved out. Something about the strutting bass line and Tom Jones-like vocals made it the coolest song I had ever heard. Never mind that I had absolutely no idea what the lyrics were about. Seriously. Some of the phrasing is as vague as a “Louie, Louie” ad lib. Yes, he’s looking for a little green bag but the rest is mystery. Who really cares? Heck, Quentin Tarantino used the song in his classic opening scene to Reservoir Dogs and he’s a guy with a pretty good record of what’s cool.
