An Early, Vaguely Toga Party-ish, Clue to the New Direction

From 1965, please enjoy quintessential frat-house rockers The Swingin' Medallions and their still enjoyably woozy morning after classic "Double Shot of My Baby's Love."

I should add, to my utter amazement, that these guys are still at it. And that none other than Bruce Springsteen, who knows from this stuff, actually asked them onstage to perform the tune with him just last year. (Here's the link -- the video's not great, but you'll get the idea).

In any case, as always, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.
