We Can Get Together

I’m still on my Hold Steady kick and just thinking about History Lesson Part II, the song that mentions other artists in the lyrics.  I started thinking that there are so many other songs that mention other artists.  Here are some of my favorites.  I’ll start with The Hold Steady is they go crazy with […]
