2021 Song Draft- Round 1 Pick 6- Cincinnati Babyhead selects- ‘Gloria’- Them.

Cincinnati Babyhead’s blog can be found at – https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/38632989

Basically stick a pin in my music pile and something good will come up.

Here’s one of the coolest songs ever!  The reason Babyhead loves rock n roll.  Songs like this.

The song wastes no time, gets to it.  It all works.  Van’s feeling it and he makes you feel it.  The beat catches you and you’re gone.  Do they still make music like this?  Tell me I need to know (A good song by Petty and the Heartbreakers).

Slap it on and hit the repeat button and catch the groove.  It doesn’t get any better.

Rock n roll the way it was supposed to be.

What’s her name CB?

“And her name is G-L-O-R-IIIIIIII…..”

  1. Van Morrison is one of my favorites- and well- ‘Gloria’ is one of those rock and roll staples. At one point I figure every playing rock band had to know this classic. Great selection.

  2. This is one of the first songs I learned on guitar and played in bars…one of the best garage songs there is…and a good one to call girls on the stage to sing the chorus with…when you are 16-17 that is a big deal. You can stretch that middle out forever.
    Great song CB

  3. Definitely would be a good one to get a bar crowd going! I’m not a very big Van the Man fan, but I like some of his work… this one is good but seems such an outlier compared to “Moondance” or “Into the Mystic”. I guess it’s surprising he could really rock!

  4. Awesome choice CB! I think Little Steven on his Underground Garage radio show called this the archetype garage rock song and I think that’s true. Great write up.
