Prick Tunes: .38 Special "Second Chance"

Honestly, I forgot this song existed. If I did remember that it existed, I don't think there's any way in hell that I'd have remembered that .38 Special was the band that put it out. This may not be as good as anything off of Wild-Eyed Southern Boys or Special Forces, but the song has some sort of appeal to me. Sure, it's likely nostalgia, but if you don't like it, get your own blog.

You know what? .38 Special is too awesome to get just one video, so here's a video of admittedly shitty quality from everyone's favorite pre-Empty Nest Richard Mulligan star-vehicle, Teachers. "Teacher, Teacher" is the track. If you haven't seen the movie, your life thus far has been a waste.

RIP Richard Mulligan - 1932 - 2000

First, .38 Special died when Don Barnes went solo. You can keep your Max Carl and syrupy keyboards, sir.

Second, the "Teacher" video proves that Donnie Van Zandt served as the prototype for Happy Mondays' Bez. Doesn't play an instrument, barely sings. Just runs around on stage, Southern-style, amping up the audience. Good times.

So what you're saying is that DVZ is the proto-Bosstone?

Ummm, I am now.

It's no wonder Don Barnes tried for a solo career. He co-wrote the hit singles, sung the verses AND played the solos, and was probably thinking "I gotta share the take with a guy who does wind sprints on stage?"
