Radio VIII, side A, track 8: “Gimme Some Lovin'” by The Spencer Davis Group

Oh, The Spencer Davis Group, whether you like it or not, whether I like it or not, whenever I hear this song I’m going to think of “Days Of Thunder”.  It wouldn’t come out for a few years after I first heard this incredibly awesome song, but once I saw that montage of Cole Trickle getting banged up on the speedway, set to this crazy good song, from then on, as soon as this song would ever start playing, the first thing I would think of is the roar of race cars and the hot beating sun pounding on the raceway, the crowd looking like a mirage in the shimmer of the heat.  Here’s the thing, The Spencer Davis Group, I don’t even like car racing.  I think it’s silly, as well as some other adjectives.  But I do love me some “Days Of Thunder” and I do love me some “Gimme Some Lovin'” set to a race car montage in “Days Of Thunder”.  Love both those things so much that I couldn’t in good conscience post just the song without posting this as well:

I know.  Pretty great, right, The Spencer Davis Group?  There are worse things your song could be associated with.

“Gimme Some Lovin'”

Hey!

Well, my temperature’s risin’ and my feet on the floor
Crazy people knockin’ ’cause they’re wantin’ some more
Let me in, baby, I don’t know what you got
But ya better take it easy, this place is hot
And I’m
So glad we made it

Gimme some-a lovin’ (Gimme gimme some lovin’)
Gimme some-a lovin’ (Gimme gimme some lovin’)
Gimme some-a lovin’

Ya better take it easy ’cause the place is on fire
Been a hard day and I have so much to do
