Get that song out of my head! (11/3)

Get that song out of my head!

Continuing our “Get that song out of my head!” feature – which is stunting our productivity!

GET THAT SONG OUT OF MY HEAD NOWToday’s “curse” is Bachman Turner Overdrive – You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet.

“You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” was written by Randy Bachman. Writer Dave Marsh called the song “a direct steal from The Who”, but “an imaginative one.” The chords of the chorus riff are very similar to the ones used by The Who in their song “Baba O’Riley”, and also, the stuttering vocal is reminiscent of “My Generation”. Randy insists that the song was performed as a joke for his brother, Gary, who had a stutter, with no intention of sounding like “My Generation”. They only intended to record it once with the stutter and send the only recording to Gary.

Funny part of this – they were “mocking” Gary and his stutter (sort of the way some baseball player “mocked” an Asian pitcher), but this had ZERO social justice warrior implications. Another piece of evidence that things used to be WAY better.

Again – one of those songs that gets stuck in your head for a while!
