Songs »Walking in Memphis (Worst Song)

marc cohn walking in memphisYou know, this song is actually about some normally cool stuff. It references a number of blues legends, Memphis hangouts, Carl Perkins, Elvis and even my beloved Bruce, but who would know it?

It might be called a “tribute”, but the horrific sounds are more like a huge f-you to the soul of the city.

Marc Cohn is way more Michael Bolton than W.C. Handy, and the song conjures images of all kinds of bad, bland, cringe-worthy things like Amy Grant and teal and maroon Patagonias. Yuck.
