1910 Fruitgum Company – Indian Giver
Hazel got me searching through old songs on YouTube. When I found this today I about flipped. I’d forgotten about it. I played this record over and over and over until I think every note and word was embedded in my music-hungry teen-aged brain. Looking back, I’d say it had to have been one of my absolute favorite songs from that time. I played it so much you could barely see the grooves in the record so I bought another one and did the same thing.
It’s amazing to me the feelings that rush to the surface when you hear a song from such a wonderful, carefree, tumultuous, giddy, hormonal time of your life. Better than drugs! Any drugs I’ve taken, anyway. I’d compare it to that rush you get when you’re first falling in love. Don’t get much better than that.
