I was just goofing around over at Boogaloo Time, and I ran into Tom Jones's "Chills and Fever". That was gonna be it. But then I listened to "She's A Lady" again. Holy fuck, that's one reason I don't mind being my age. I got to hear "She's A Lady" coming out of a tinny speaker on an AM radio. Compare that to...oh fuck, nevermind.
Check this video of him with Janis Joplin. It smokes. There's some sort of weird show biz mutual respect chemistry thing going on there. I really, really dig it when they're dancing together during the sax solo. But the whole thing, beginning to end, is just plain awesome. Even the fully freaking dancing extras are a gas.
