War’s harmonica player, Lee Oskar:
Listened to that one on the jukebox in 1978 while eating red beans and rice and drinking Dixie Beer at Buster Holmes’ (I think this is the right place; Buster’s went out of business years ago).
Saturday evening relaxing around the house music
Simple but melodic
Totally different from the Stones version, but a great cover all the same.
I hated this song when Bobby McFerrin did it, but these kids make it work.
I love the original song.
I’ve kids OD so I won’t watch that now.
Wow, I thought Bobby’s version was pretty much the most annoying song of the decade. Of course, it was playing on like every station like every five minutes for a year…
That’s conditionates how you perceive it, yes.
