Tunes: The McCoys' Hang on Sloopy


I've always loved this song, especially when it encourages Sloopy (and me, when feeling saucy) to let her hair down.  An anthem for long-tressed children and strippers everywhere.  Without ever seeing this video, I managed to perform that exact dance for hours in my childhood basement in Kansas City.  Rick Derringer somehow reminds me of a blonde Seth Cohen -- I think it's the teeth.  Sorrow's quite a great McCoys' tune, too, but not enough of a U.S. hit to garner YouTube attention.
