All You Wanna Do Is Ride Around Sally


Stag-o-lee may be the most well known Wilson Pickett song, but when I was a kid, I knew every single word to Mustang Sally. My dad was known for his playlists on the boat in the summer and it seemed that song always made it on the tapes. Yes, young ones, tapes. Not iPods, CDs or whatever. Glorious mix tapes!!
