Andrew WK, “McLaughlin Groove”
June 22, 2011 Leave a comment
When I was younger, my dad would sometimes watch The McLaughlin Group on Sunday mornings. For those of you unfamiliar with the program, it’s essentially the grandfather of all political pundit chat shows. Each episode features host, and former Nixon speech writer, John McLaughlin and his panel of alleged experts having a fast moving debate over the issues of the day. However, as McLaughlin gets older he’s become prone to making a few “out there” observations about the world.
Well, public radio host Faith Salie challenged rocker Andrew WK to make a song using a few of McLaughlin’s unusual comments and the resulting “McLaughlin Groove” does not disappoint.
