Don't ask me why, but for some reason "Tiger Man" got into my head today. I'd never heard the song when my brother played a practice tape of his band doing it, back in the eighties. I have the tape somewhere. I seem to remember him playing pretty good on it. So, that version is the default association, whether I like it or not. Not long after that, the second version I heard was Joe Hill Louis's original. Somewhere down the line is Dan Sartain's version. Sartain seems like a casual guy and I like his music, so I was predisposed to liking it. (Ladies, "No More Hot Dogs" is his favorite Hasil Adkins's song.) That's all I got. Oh yeah, Elvis did it too. I finally heard that one for the first time about a couple hours ago. It wasn't high on my list. Still isn't.
