Last Friday was Rebel Night and the music was great as usual. So much so, I wish the guys would keep their playlists somewhere. Anywho, this incredibly catchy song caught my ear and I filed away snatches of the lyrics so I could Google it later and find it. The beauty of Rebel Night is the DJs play music only from original 45s. So that, plus the fact that JD McPherson sounds like he's straight from 1957 on the track made me think all the Google results I was turning up for "North Side Gal" were some insanely popular cover. Nope. His version is the real deal and it's great. I've been tapping my toes to this song for two straight days. Hear it after the jump.
I think I'm terribly close to buying my first CD in about two years.
