"Mustang Sally"

OK, more 60's: Bonny ("Sir Mack") Rice penned and first recorded this 1965 funk/soul classic (#15 R&B) inspired by Della Reese and renamed as suggested by Aretha Franklin. Wilson Pickett's '66 version peaked at #6 R&B. A girl lives the wild life in her sports car. #434 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time. The Young Rascals also covered it that same year. Part of "The Commitments" and "Miss Congeniality" soundtracks.

Yesterday's answer: "Good Day Sunshine" by The Beatles. Macca played it live to the crew of the International Space Station in '05 - the 1st ever live concert link-up to space!
