Song In My Head #60: “Georgie Don’t You Know” by Outrageous Cherry

Outrageous Cherry is the brainchild of Detroit singer-songwriter-guitarist Matthew Smith, who has been the one constant in the band over the years.

(The New Pornographers obviously agree, having included the song on a 2010 single consisting solely of Outrageous Cherry covers. I am now obsessed with finding a copy. In the meantime…)
