Welcome to another Popcorn Double Feature! We hope you’re sitting comfortably.
A couple of all-time classics for you this week. We have the singular talents of Melle Mel (not featuring Grandmaster Flash as often supposed) and little Bobby Zimmerman (from when he was good). But, how could these two giants of the music world possibly be linked?
If you know, consider letting Rebel Rikkit know by sending him a series of large pieces of paper one word at a time. Then, don’t do it.
Well, CBS seem not to have made enough money from this song in 50 years (yes, 50 years!) and have muted the youtube clip above, but I guess you know how it goes. Anyway, have another Dylan song, one we talked about on a recent pod, which equally links to Melle Mel.
I have 2 possible answers but I don’t think either of them are right.
Both of these artists have recently been the subject (victim?) of my impersonations on the podcast. But I’m sure that’s not the link.
Are both these songs on the notoriously awful Duran Duran covers album?
Although the first is true, it’s not the link. As for the second, I have no idea, but thanks for taking part.
