Gary Puckett and the Union Gap: "Woman, Woman"

ScatMan John: "ScatMan's World"


I'm a coward. I cut and run from P2P networks about five days after I first ventured in. I had time enough to grab a few gigs worth of songs, though, and "Woman, Woman" just happened to be one of them. That was back in September, or so, and it wasn't until last week that I got around to queuing up this particular mp3. Upon doing so, I had to pause, and ask myself, "okay, what the hell is this?"

I love this song. Normally. I at least love the version that used to get played on Fox 97 all the time. This is definitely not that version. It says Gary Puckett on the tag, but it most certainly does not sound like the Gary Puckett who so easily tickles my cerebellum on the original. It may well be him, and this just a more recent recording of the all-time classic, and I imagine that to be the case. Still, Gary's complicity aside, this is a shameful bastardization of Mr. Puckett's masterpiece.


"ScatMan's World", on the other hand, is a startling improvement upon ScatMan John's similar, and more familiar, hit. It's quite possibly the happiest song I've ever word, and pretty much all I've been able to listen to for a month now. I would give anything, absolutely anything, to glimpse ScatMan's world, even if for just a moment.
