How Do I Know That Song?

First of all you probably need to see here for background info. In a nutshell the lovely Ms.Mac was telling us how the kids think they invented music and their fave hits cant possibly be cover versions of song we knew and loved back in the day. I whole-heartedley agreed that, yes the kids are alright, but they dont know music like we did 😉

Imagine my embarrasment listening to radio recently and hearing Mona, which I thought was a lively ditty by Craig McLachlan of Check 1-2 AKA Henry Ramsay off Neighbours.

In fact it was first released in 1957, and I quote…

Hey Bo Diddley is Bo Diddley’s 7th single. The B-side “Mona” was covered by The Rolling Stones.

I was left in a right state I can tell you, Craig doesnt even get a mention on the original song page, just something about some “Rolling Stones.”

I’m not even going to begin to explain how I felt a few days later on hearing the first few seconds of the Stevie Wonder tune, Pastime Paradise He has like totally ripped off Coolio!
