I was compiling the playlist for my radio show earlier today (link below, since you asked), which included this track from The Yardbirds, and it occurred to me that back then in the sixties lots of songs had “hey” or “hey hey” or in extreme cases “hey hey hey” as part of the song.
OTTOMH I can think of The Kink’s “Dead End Street” and The Spencer Davis Group’s “Gimme Some Lovin’”. And of course Zep’s “Black Dog”. I thought maybe I could compile a whole 90 minute show of songs with guys saying “hey”.
And, are there any songs with girls saying/singing “hey”? I can’t think of any myself, but I’d love to include them, maybe even do a whole show of girls singing “hey” if there’s enough suggestions.
