Thread Name: The Mudcat Juke Joint!
Subject: RE: The Mudcat Juke Joint!
After the mysterious woman arcwelded Mbo's heart back together, he headed back in to the friends and fun of the Mudcat Juke Joint. Whilst waiting for the MiB to start, he dropped a coin into the slot of the Wurlizter he had polished up that fateful night when all of this started.....he selected track B24--"Roll Over Beethoven" by The Electric Light Orchestra.

Mbo met the strange looks of those who saw the violin case he had brought with him, out from under the front seat. "Don't worry folks--it's not a Tommy gun--just a violin." The faces relax and smile. He told them a bit about the song on the juke. "ELO's version of Chuck Berry's warhorse is called THE definative version. I heartily agree. Where else can one hear cellos, and most importantly, Wilf Gibson's kick duff fiddle solo?"

Mbo suddenly smelled the smoke and the cinders, slicked back his hair, and opened up his case. He doubled along with Wilf on fiddle--pulling off those amazing rising double stops...

Early in the morning I'm giving you my warning
Don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Hey, diddle diddle, gonna play my fiddle
I ain't got nothing to lose
Roll Over Beethoven, tell Tchaikovsky the news.

Well, if you feel you like it
Go get your lover and reel and rock it
Roll it over and move on up now
Go for cover and reel and rock it
Roll it over
Roll Over Beethoven, tell Tchaikovsky the news!
