Scruffy The Cat "Tiger Tiger" (Bonus Video Friday)

Hi folks, it's been awhile since I've run Bonus Video Friday, and this will be the only one in December (maybe).  I wanted to run it because it's a great, great song and because it's only ever had 259 views on YouTube, which borders on the criminal.  I used to see Scruffy The Cat on my 1980's Boston excursions (see blog entry Flying To Boston To See The Rock & Roll, January 13th, 2012) and they were always superiorly clever AND rocking.

(By the way, if anybody's interested in Christmas rock & roll videos, my favorites ran in Growing Old With Rock & Roll last December 1st, 4th, 11th, 13th, 19th, and 24th.  Check 'em out.)

inspirational verse; "Sometimes you treat me like apple pie /
Sometimes I think you wanna see me cry / I just don't know what's the matter with you /
I wish I knew, I wish I knew, I wish I knew" - Charlie Chesterman, 1986   

(And exactly how many rock & roll songs pack as many hooks AND a William Blake
reference into 2 minutes and 31 seconds as this snappy little number?)
