Diddy-Wah-Diddy - Taj Mahal et al

Legbamel Not-Pop

Ever since I got Taj Mahal’s newest album, “Maestro”, I’ve been getting his version of Bo Diddley’s Diddy Wah Diddy stuck in my head. I can no longer hold back my love of this song, but to resist offending those of you who like other versions, I’ve included half a dozen takes on the song in a playlist below. I still like Taj Mahal’s version best, but this rollicking song makes me want to dance no matter who is playing it. One of these days, I’ll put it together with some other tunes that include the “I knew a girl…” concept. For now, enjoy the various versions of Diddy Wah Diddy, and let me know which is your favorite.

    Heck, yeah! It's right here, although I'm not sure how the "profile" will look when you get there. It's a great service, though.
