Just Sittin’, Listenin’ – 2


The Coasters – Searchin’ / Young Blood (1957) – Vinyl

Searchin’ does the job in a gospel meets R&B type of way. Young Blood however has a laid back groove to it but the humorous vocal breakdowns have aged it, as have the lyrics which probably paint a different picture to the one originally intended –

I saw her standin’ on the corner
A yellow ribbon in her hair
I couldn’t stop myself from shoutin
Look a-there Look a-there
Look a-there Look a-there
Young blood, young blood, young blood
