While waiting for a green line train at the Park Street MBTA station, a familiar tune rang through the air. Walking to the source made me realize it was the 1978 Zevon hit song Werewolves of London. For some strange reason, sometimes, when I’m biking around the city, high on adrenaline and endorphins, I like to shout out:
Aaahoo, werewolves of London
Don’t ask for an explanation, there isn’t one. Just another oddity of me and Boston bicycling.
So, when I heard the tune being sung so well by some dude with his guitar I just had to record it. Of course, just as I hit record on my iPhone my train comes barreling down the tracks.
Still, I captured 27 seconds of the sweet, sweet sound, which was enough to get the Aaahoo, werewolves of London part on tape. The first ten seconds are a bit tough to hear due to the afore mentioned train but give it a listen.
Thanks random dude with your guitar for brightening up my day and MBTA trip a bit. If you read this give me a shout and claim some credit (or if you don’t have permission to play the song, stay silent).
If you’re like me, that short clip got you fiending for more, so here’s Zevon rocking out live:
Not enough Zevon rocking Werewolves of London?
I hear ya!
Thanks to stuant63 for the spooky photo of the sun (yes, I know werewolves come out at full moon but that photo is spooky).
