Happy Halloween! (Jesusween?)
It may be called “Frankenstein”, but the really scary thing about this song is the memory it brings up for me. I can remember being in shop class in eighth grade in Huntington, Indiana, and the teacher allowing us to have the radio on to listen to the Indy 500 time trials. (yes, radio coverage of single cars going around a track to establish their order at the start of the race. It was Indiana.) There must have been a rain delay, because I can remember hearing this song being played as I attempted to use the drill press and the lathe.
I am so ancient.
By the way, my favorite part of the song is the saxophone/guitar duet.
