A Zombeels song followed by a Hymie, just like in the old days! What is new is that this is a Hymie actually ranking on AM, at #3675!

533. Amos Milburn – Chicken Shack Boogie
Year: 1948
Released as a single
Biggest Fan: Hymie (#802)
The 1948 record is not the correct version that is on my list. It's his remake from 1956 that is titled "Chicken Shack."

I think the one I added to my playlist now is the right one. Could you check?

Nope.

The right one is called "Chicken Shack," not "Chicken Shack Boogie." It has a WAY faster tempo than the 1948 hit.

I think I got it now. I was confused because I read your earlier post as if you wanted the older song in, but you wanted the later one. Spotify only has one version without "Boogie" in the title and it sounds the same (except perhaps in mastering) as the one on YouTube.

I also updated the info on the song on the last page.

Could you two vote for the right version of the song (in case you didn't already vote for the YouTube-link provided by Hymie)?


Amos Milburn - Chicken Shack: 7
I preferred the "Boogie". This remake is slicker, but misses the swagger of the original. Still pretty good though.

Icehouse - Great Southern Land: 5
Okay, but doesn't really stand out.

Super Furry Animals – (Drawing) Rings Around the World: 7
Has a psychedelic, summery vibe that is totally correct for the current moment. That same album has better songs, but this one is pretty cool too.

Most people would agree with you. The 1948 record is the classic. It's #7 for the year here at AM. I give it an 8.

But I like the sped up remake better, a 9.

BTW, you can remove from your original post the part about my song ranking on AM.

Sure, my first vote was for the original. I'm with Hymie in preferring the remake.

The Fame was the first album I ever listened to and "Brown Eyes" was always my favorite song on there.

Lady Gaga - Brown Eyes: 7
Feels a bit different than the stuff Lady Gaga was putting out at the time. Half-way burlesque, half-way Gwen Stefani, if that makes sense.

Toy Love – Don’t Ask Me: 6
It's good, but after 537 I sometimes feel that it becomes harder and harder to write something about songs that don't stand out all that much.
