Video of the Week + Happy Holidays - "Green Onions" - Booker T & the MGs

Not only is it a holiday tomorrow, but I'm also taking another day off! So three days! I've always wondered what it would feel like to be at home on Saturdays!

So enjoy the holiday; I know I'll be at home, given the traffic looks like this:

So to enjoy this lovely news, I'm sharing with you what to me is the ultimate victory song. I'll take my eggs with green onions for breakfast this weekend thank you very much.

This classic track from '62 is an iconic instrumental from Stax Records, THE original R&Bers and dubbed the "greatest backup band in the world": Booker T (piano) & the MG's. Many of you probably heard this song without knowing who performed it. Big "like" to Donald "Duck" Dunn (on Fender P-bass) and Steve Cropper (on Fender Telecaster).
