George Thorogood is one of those timeless bastards like AC/DC where you can never really pin down a decade or “genre” for these fuckers.
One bourbon, one scotch, one beer is a combination of two John Lee Hooker songs. House Rent Blues and One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer.
I love John Lee Hooker but I honestly have to give this one to Thorogood.
From here we move on (heh) to Move It On Over … This is a mother fucking Hank Williams song …
This is a tougher call but I still have to give this one to Thorogood.
Now I have to point out this one that everyone knows. If there is a single George Thorogood song that people know, its this one.
This is hardly one of my favorites but is undeniably one of his best-known.
Like most (maybe all) of Thorogood’s stuff, this isn’t his but he did it really well (best?).
I thing what best describes George Thorogood is “Rock and Roll”. Not Rock. Not Metal. Not Blues. But classic “what-you-think-of-when-you-hear-rock-n-roll” music.
Much like AC/DC, George Thorogood is that definitive “rock-n-roll” sound. Its timeless. You can’t pick out a decade for this music as it fits wherever you put it.
Then there’s the occasional song that would never be ok by today’s standards …
And we’ve all been here ..
Well shit, I gotta be honest, I’ve only gone through about half of my Thorogood collection.
