Garage Rock Classic - Do Like Me, by The Uncalled For

in garagerock •  2 months ago

Here's a song that is very cool but more chill than the recent wild fuzzy Garage Rock tunes I have posted. Some may call this one slightly psychedelic, and it comes from 1967 which was a transition year from Garage Rock to the rise of Psychedelic music.

The Uncalled For is a six piece band from Tennessee and they are still playing together, all these years later! This song is guitar driven with an organ accompaniment. It's fairly mellow but the guitar is cool, with an up strum in the 4 chord progression to add some punch, and a sweet tasty guitar solo in the middle.

The lyrics are directed at the girl who may have had a rough day at school. Comfort and an example of how to live are offered by the guy.

If you ever have a day where the man's got you down, and everyone you know is playin' you for a clown, and your head is still spinnin' from the night before, your lovin' mom and dad just kicked you out the door... Come on over! I'm gonna show it to you! Everything I know girl, everything to do. I'm gonna set you an example, show you how to be. If you wanna do right girl, just do like me! Yeah!

And when the man at school is cuttin' out your kicks, and all of your friends are acting like a bunch of hicks, and you got your troubles and you're always late, and you're bugged so bad you can't concentrate... Come on over! I'm gonna show it to you! Everything I know girl, everything to do. I'm gonna set you an example, show you how to be. If you wanna do right girl, just do like me! Yeah!

Enjoy this cool 4 chord Garage Rock classic featured on the Pebbles Volume 8 compilation from the early days of the Garage Rock revival scene in the 80s. I love it and I think you can dig it too!
