For Gene

At Foley’s Saturday night, Gene remarked that it’s too bad no one ever did a rockin’ cover of Hippy Hippy Shake. I was shocked that he had somehow bypassed the Georgia Satellites doing that very thing in 1988.

Was gonna just send it to Gene but, what the heck, why not post it since we’re not exactly swimming in content lately (especially from me)?

Wiki tells me the song has also been covered by others, including The Beatles and Mud.

Here’s the video, which I now recall was a feature of that lame-o 80’s classic Cocktail. Lots of hot 80’s chicks in high-waisted jeans who are probably looking pretty rough these days.

Cool points for clocking in at less than two minutes.
