Radio 75, side B, track 8: “Black Betty” by Ram Jam

Ram Jam - Black BettyOh, Ram Jam, I don’t know what this song is about.  I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it turns out you could be singing about a number of things.  And you know what?  It doesn’t matter.  I don’t know where the hell I’ve ever heard this song before, Ram Jam, but my god it’s awesome!  Your name, the name of this song, the song itself, all of it collided together to make one of the best rock songs I’ve ever heard.  Bam a lam indeed.
