I asked Scott yesterday to give me his top 3 favorite Rationals songs. He gave me 4. His list is #1 favorite "I Need You". That is my favorite as well. I was lucky to have gotten a ticket to see Scott sing that live at the Magic Bag the summer of 2009. This is the song that made hordes of teenage girls faint dead out when Scott sang it. Honesty and vulnerability from a boy who loves his girl....
Scott's #2 favorite is "Temptation's Bound to Get Me" Also my second favorite. The Rats harmonies in this song just sends me into a coma! I can't help but sing loudly along with the Rats and Scott on this tune. I couldn't find a decent video of this song so I made 4 Rats videos this morning to use for this story and as a gift to Scott and the Rationals bazillion fans.
How cool is this song? Temptation already got me I think....
These Ann Arbor guys made such a huge impact on Detroit rock and roll. Scott is working on a book and I can tell you he knows everything and everybody in the history of Detroit Music. Can't wait to read the whole story.
Scott's #3 favorite is Hand Bags and Glad Rags. I love this song and it's upbeat rhythm compared to the Rod Stewart's version.
Scott's #4 favorite is "Listen to Me" Scott is playing the congas on this song and I just love it. One night I was dropping Scott at a gig and this song came on my Jeep's cd player just as he was getting out. Scott heard the first 2 notes and hopped back in my jeep and said...."let's listen to me"! Well that's what we did... How cool is that??
Made one more video today to share....
Whoa Kim - Thanks! did Glad Rags first - one of my favs. Love the photos.
"I think I was about 15 or 16. I know every word~wanna sing it with you Scott! (Hey! I'm good!--tee-hee)"
I got Scott Morgan to sing me "I need you" while I drove him to Ann Arbor.....it was f@#king cool."
"Scott Morgan is one soulful white boy. The Rationals should have been international superstars."
The definition of "Blue Eyed Soul".
what about my all time FAV...
"R E S P E C T" ?
Scott, the Morgan clan has been alerted plus some music fans in Thailand & elsewhere.
Thanks Kim....Probably saw Scott and The Rationals 50 -80 times Grew up with them...One of my all time favs...Peace...Whaler
WOW ! does THIS bring back memories !! miss A square / and the music!
@ANONYMOUS just posted RESPECT on you tube
Bloomfield Hills ...Rationals were everywhere even at my school...Birmingham/Bloomfield Teen Center/ Became the Paladium/Pub...Silverbelle..The Hideout..You name it...Just loved that band...Whaler
Love them all!
Though I gotta say, "Guitar Army" should be in this list somewhere.
THAT is one A2 high energy toon!
Man, that takes me back! I seem to recall the Rationals losing a Battle of the Bands to the Woolies around '65 or '66 at a guitar store on Michigan Avenue in Dearborn.
"Hand Bags.." NICE! Don't think I saw Scott do that one before but have always thought their version was the best.
The Young Rascals did a version of Temptation just about the same time...always thought Scott sounded much better and I was a Rationals and Rascal fan...
Once I was going to the Blind Pig -met Steve Lyman at Scott's house and when I got to the parking lot by the blind pig I didn't want to get out of the car cause Monkey Time was playing on the radio....Scott opened that night - I think it was the free mic night..with his version of Monkey Time...it was so awesome--rose ann
