Back in ancient days as a college radio DJ, there was nothing I loved more than finding two songs that were born to be played together. Either they sounded similar, were thematically linked, or shared some arcane thing that bonded them.
Iâ€™m sure that among my six listeners, someone got the point.
When I heard Man Manâ€™s song Top Drawer yesterday it hit me: this is the twisted cousin of Paul McCartneyâ€™s Monkberry Moon Delight!
Both are insane rollicking carnivals of weirdness. McCartneyâ€™s mad howling on Monkberry is amazing — and I have to say, when I was a kid, this song actually scared me a little. Itâ€™s hard to say if Top Drawerâ€™s song is an homage, but it sure sounds that way.
