The 5 O’clock Shadow: Friday May 27, 2022


In the year 2000 one of the members of The Shadow band made a dangerous climb to the top of a large, set piece on the stage of the MTV Awards, while the live show was in progress, and sat precariously atop it for some time.

The song has four writers, not looking for you to name them all, but one of them also recorded and released the song in 1983.

This version appeared on The Shadow band’s 2000 cover’s album and also features a percussion interpolation of the Incredible Bongo Band’s piece “Apache” and riffs from the Cheap Trick song “Gonna Raise Hell”
