The Lemon Drop Gang - "Georgie"

At this point we might all associate the name Georgie with It, but The Lemon Drop Gang's newest song isn't about the Stephen King classic. Instead it's an answer song to The Seekers's 1966 song "Georgy Girl." While "Georgy Girl" was an Academy Award and Golden Globe winning folk classic, "Georgie" is a garage rock ripper. It's a song imploring a woman to not change for polite society and to keep being herself. If it wasn't for the growl in singer Steph O'Halloran's voice, this could pass for a 60's garage rocker. Instead, it's a 60's style garage rocker infused with some punk edge. Now we'll just have to wait to see if Homer Simpson uses this song to sadly sing about missing out on a blimp ride.

You can listen to "Georgie" below. The song is currently available as a free download via Rum Bar Records's BandcampI'm Not the One!, the upcoming album from The Lemon Drop Gang, will be out in the Fall. For more on The Lemon Drop Gang, check them out on Facebook.
