music monday: eli 'paperboy' reed

I saw this guy and his band on Rachael Ray's talk show (which I rarely watch) a while back, and I just loved him!  (As did Rachael.)   I love the old throwback sound, the well-done falsetto wail that reminds me of Jerry Lee Lewis, and he even rocks a pretty neat pompadour.  Check him out for yourself:

On the YouTube page I took this from, the top comment says:
(Are people even allowed to make songs like this any more?)
Apparently, it is allowed, and I'm lovin' it!


  1. What a great voice! He's like the white Cee Lo Green. I think oldies is going to make a hip come back. The whole sound and vibe. I love it!

  2. What a cool song!

    Visiting from the weekly roundup. Have a great weekend!
