Radio XXXI, side A, track 12: “Gimme Some Lovin'” by The Spencer Davis Group

Spencer Davis Group - Gimme Some Lovin'Oh, The Spencer Davis Group,, it’s been quite awhile since I last talked about this song, and a lot has happened since then.  Most importantly, I’ve made it clear that Steve Winwood is one of my nemeses.   But thanks to the Now and Then Weekend, I will say that I have to give him some props, Spencer Davis Group.  He sang this amazing song when he was 17?!?  That’s. . .that’s pretty damn cool, Spencer Davis Group.  I’m always extremely impressed when I hear how old someone was when they did something amazing, because they were usually pretty young.  And then I compare it to my current age and then when I was their age and what was I doing at that age and what am I doing now?  My barometer is usually the great Orson Welles who made one of the most important films ever made at the tender age of 23.  Or anything my grandparents’ generation did during World War II at about the same age Steve Winwood was when he sang this amazing song.  And usually, when I measure myself up against those talented or brave or successful or all of the above types of people, I invariably find myself falling well short of that measuring stick.  I was clearly not singing great rock and roll songs that will stand the test of time when I was 17, Spencer Davis Group.  I was probably feeding cattle, maybe dreaming about making out with a girl, and reading Spider-Man comics.  In fact, it’s about 20 years later, and that’s almost exactly the same thing I’m doing now; except that now it’s dogs and cats instead of cattle and my wife and I will probably be going to bed early.  After I read a Spider-Man comic.  I don’t know what that means, Spencer Davis Group, but I’m suddenly feeling like I should be getting out more. . .
