‘Jolene’ VS ‘Jungle Boogie’

Get downs;

For Cake, in this signature and seminary track from 1994’s “Motorcade of Generosity” John McCrea auspiciously leads the band in a plausibly live sounding workout at the resolution of the jam, signaling doomed sideman Greg Brown to fire up his ask, shouting over the last minute and a half or so a combination of semi-mocking shouts of glee, instruction and encouragement.

Years earlier and clearly within his earshot and spongeability, Kool and The Gang took us all for a tour of the dark side with the hook alternating with the chanted lyric melody.

Off the top of my head, and cranking both back to back Appletunes thru a 2010 Lexus standard cd 5- disc changer with an AUX port to my X, and without checking the handy lyrics feature I would estimate final tally in the “Get Down Derby”:

Cake, 1995: 7

Kool and The Gang, 1975: 56
