Once upon a time, I had a radio show that only played bands currently performing in the district. That show is super dead, so we’ve resurrected it (with way more words and far less radio) in the form of this column. Everyday I’ll review a song from a band playing in D.C. that night. The rules are, 1. I can only listen to the song once and 2. I only have until the end of the song to finish my review.
ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK – RELEASE ME
I don’t think I really need to say this, but this guy has the best name of all time. His parents made a great decision. I can definitely get down with this song. All aboard the easy listening train. Also, those SIDE BURNS. How have I never heard of/seen this guy before? OH DAMN IT’S CRESCENDO TIME. He’s really going hard at the end of this song. I totally feel your pain Humperdinck, that chick should most definitely let you go.
