You know that's against the rules

So, football season happens to start this weekend, which reminds me of of this song, Backfield In Motion, by Mel & Tim. I'm not much of a football fan by any stretch, but this song is ridiculously catchy and amusingly riddled with sports references (mostly football) and innuendos (even though I generally feel that most songs about sports are pretty lame)(don't you hate parenthetical asides?). Apparently, these guys are cousins from Mississippi who were discovered in Chicago in the 60s, and this was their biggest hit. I grabbed this track from the most excellent box set, Beg, Scream & Shout: The Big Ol' Box of 60s Soul, which is pretty much worth whatever it says on the price tag. Check it.
