Saffire - The Uppity Blues Women: 'Middle Aged Blues Boogie'

Yes, you read it right.

Take three middle aged women, throw in some instruments and the blues, and you get the Saffire - The Uppity Blues Women.

Although they sing novelty songs and you might now take them serious, these women can play! Apart from the great technical proficiency, check out the lyrics:

"Well, I don't need no reefer, I don't need no cocaine 
All I need is a young man to drive me insane
I'm throwing away my dustmop, got a brand new vacuum cleaner
I'm no longer taken for granted, my young man's sexy but sweeter
A young, young man, to drive away my middle-age blues"

The band has disbanded in 2009, after forming in 1987.

Check this song out called 'Middle Aged Blues Boogie'.
