Song Of The Day 2/15/2014: Flo & Eddie - "There's No Business Like Show Business"

Quarterly Covers Report: Let's wind up this Covers Report with Flo & Eddie, who were in the Turtles. They somehow slid into the Mothers of Invention, and then after that I think they were ambassadors of some sort. I'm not exactly sure what their point was. They did backing vocals on everything from T. Rex's "Get In On (Bang A Gong)" to Bruce Springsteen's "Hungry Heart" to Duran Duran's Thank You album -- a sack full of covers in itself which is one of the lamest collections I've ever heard, or would have been if I didn't stop it in the first third and chuck it into the Los Angeles River. Anyway, since this was the lowest-viewed Covers Report in the last year (part of the reason for that is seasonal but don't ask me to break it down), their uplifting and pseudo-ironic cover of "There's No Business Like Show Business" seemed like a good way to phone it in for a Saturday. Next covers week is in May. Book your bridal suites now.
