Musical Interlude: Mony Mony (1968)

You know we're time trippin', friends, when you scope out the following video.

Tommy James & The Shondells' "Mony Mony" reached #3 in 1968. Nearly 20 years later, British singer Billy Idol reached #7 with a cover, released on his "Vital Idol" CD. Idol had actually recorded his version six years prior, but it really picked up steam during the Minnesota Twins' run to their first World Series title.

Now, don't ya think Nehru jackets will eventually come back into style after seeing this video?
