SONG OF THE WEEK #60: The Nightcrawlers - "The Little Black Egg"

One of the lesser known garage bands from the U.S., The Nightcrawlers were nonetheless responsible for one of the jangliest, most original 60's songs. "The Little Black Egg" was released as a single in 1965; it didn't do particularly well, but that wouldn't be telling you a lot. The song is a timeless classic - it sounds like a cross between The Byrds and The Everly Brothers: simple, melodic, but with that irresistible jangly edge. Mitch Leigh's (Joey Ramone's brother) The Rattlers did a great cover on their badly underappreciated 1984 LP.
