Motorhead Baby - Jimmie Vaughan

Legbamel Not-Pop

I know that there are a lot of Motorhead fans out there, but it's this song I think of when I hear the term. Before there was "hard rock" there was the blues, which could rock pretty hard indeed. Jimmy Vaughan keeps up the great BB King tradition of demonstrating that with great licks, saucy lyrics, and delivery that defies dating. When I first heard this one I thought it had to be pretty old. Nope, it's Jimmy Vaughan from an album released in 1998. The song, of course, dates back to 1951 and Chuck Higgins but it was written by none other than Johnny "Guitar" Watson. With that sort of provenance, you know it's got to be great.
