Morning Song – Aw’ Mercy

July 3, 2017

There’s nothing in “Aw’ Mercy” that leads you to believe that Booker T and The MGs did anything other than mess around with 12 bar blues progressions during their free time in the Stax studios, playing a never-ending game of “How many songs can we come up with using the same three chords?“.

There’s also nothing in “Aw’ Mercy” that leads you to conclude that this was anything other than an excellent idea.

(Say it now: “Awww, mercy!“)
