Monday Earworm: Redbone

This song is at least as old as I am, but it keeps coming up everywhere. I mean, it is evergreen and guaranteed to put a person in a good mood every time it comes on, so — sure! Let’s have more of it.

This “official music video” for it is more recent, though, and an interesting take on the song, in a somewhat meta-narrative sort of way. You can also easily find video clips of Redbone playing the song live, which is also worth pursuing.

Fun fact: Redbone was the first Native American band to have a hit on the Billboard Top 100, with this song. It peaked at #5 and spent eighteen weeks in the Top 40.
