Why Don't You Haul Off and Love Me?

Legbamel Not-Pop

As promised, today I'm sharing another of the songs that recently captured my attention. In this case, I'm including both the version that I first heard and the original that inspired it. What I find strange is that the song was a huge hit, the original and three covers, in 1949. Then Why Don't You Haul Off and Love Me apparently sank beneath the waves of obscurity and there hasn't been a notable version released since. I sincerely hope that someone picks up the torch on this one. I would love to hear a really hardcore modern cover, perhaps from a woman. Pink, anyone?
