“Tallahassee Lassie” – Rolling Stones


An outtake from the Stones’ 1978 masterpiece “Some Girls” that should have definitely been included in the original mix of songs, but now has thanks to the Deluxe Edition double CD that was recently released. While this cover of the Freddy Cannon classic is a damn nice discovery, the version by the Flamin’ Groovies from the early 1970s is even better:


“Tallahassee Lassie” – The Flaimin’ Groovies


One of my favorite covers of all time and my favorite Flamin’ Groovies song (which I realize is a bold statement, considering their oeuvre contains “Shake Some Action,” “Teenage Head,” and “Slow Death.”) I especially love the fact that the “video” made for this uses this terrific old animation from either the 1920s or 1930s.
