"We Gotta Get Out Of This Place" by The Animals.

OK, back to the 60's: This '65 Mann/Weil composition was originally intended for The Righteous Brothers. A North England working-class band recorded it and different versions from the same sessions were released in the UK (#2) and the US (#13). It became an anthem during the Vietnam War. Very recognizable bass lead and organ lines. #233 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time and inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Song? Band?

Yesterday's answer: "Stuck In The Middle (With You)" by Stealers Wheel. Definite Dylan and even Don McLean inflections. Man, Tarantino can be bloody!
