I totally know this song. You do, too. But like many of the Friday Nineties picks I had NO idea who the band was. Still don’t, really. But their name (The Real McCoy) is pretty cool. I feel like the name is sort of wasted on them since they were a one hit wonder. Being The Real McCoy didn’t make their other songs more popular, so I would assume that having a worse name would not have made “Another Night” worse. I can come up with some better name’s for them right off the bat:
- Planter’s Wart
- Railroad Dick
- Sydney Carton’s Wig
- Between the Cushions
Any of those names and “Another Night” would still have been a hit. And then The Real McCoy could have been used for a better band. But who to give it to…that’s the real question. What band has a crap name but a lot of awesome songs? Seriously I don’t know. Someone? Anyone? Help me out here.
