2016 Furtive 50 – #24
If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it’s all over I’ll let you know
Needing something to cheer me up on this bleak & wintery day I turned to this old favourite; by turns funny, funky and also at times excruciatingly uncomfortable viewing, ladies and gentlemen I give you the mighty Traks and their cover of the Doobie Brothers classic ‘Long Train Running’.
The fleshtone codpiece and preening to camera do make it feel like a Mighty Boosh sketch at times, but I genuinely do think it’s a great version, especially in all it’s extended glory. The now dormant American Athlete blog still has some interesting downloads for the completists.
