Violent Love - Otis Rush, Oingo Boingo, et al

Legbamel Not-Pop

Violent Love was one of the very first songs on which I posted. There's a reason for that: it's one of my favorites. For me, laying the Otis Rush version cheek-by-jowl with the Oingo Boingo version is the best way to listen to the song. For your edification, I've included the Skankin' Pickle version of the Oingo Boingo cover and one from Willie Dixon much more faithful to the original. As you can see, Grooveshark has fixed their little widget problem, so I've added the playlist from yesterday's post on Ya Ya as well as getting these gems here for you to enjoy.

One Response so far.
