Little Lion Man

Mumford and Sons:  Little Lion Man - My current earworm 
 
It is bluegrass with the boring taken out and the punk poured in.

Naughty words warning.

Why was it familiar? I remembered - i believe one of the parts is shared with "Journey of the Sorcerer" by Led Zepplin.

Well, isn't everything Led Zeplin via 12 bar blues anyway according to Flange Gasket :)

1) Cool!

2) If you've been exposed to boring bluegrass... you've been dealing with the WRONG bluegrass. Bluegrass is good.

3) "Journey of the Sorceror" is from The Eagles. It was the backing to the original BBC radio production of the Hitch-hikers' Guide To The Galaxy.

Thanks for the correction, I love that song! And I've ordered the album. Two places didn't have it available.
