Video Friday

Uncle Cracker covered this song, but I have always felt that the Dobie Gray original is far superior. While it doesn’t have anything directly to do with Satellite of Love, it is responsible in a way for the entire series because this is how I have always felt about music. I don’t want Calgon to take me away because music does the job so much better.

Interestingly, legend has it that the song was offered to Elvis, but when he hear the Dobie Gray recording he turned it down because he didn’t think he could do a better version. Elvis, people.
