Surfer Blood vs. The Animals

I think this might only be here because  I’ve listened to Surfer Blood‘s  debut album “Astro Coast” (2010) so much. Ok, it’s only four chords but the tempo and rhythm is just so similar I just couldn’t ignore it. Check out The Animals “We Gotta Get out of This Place”  along with “Twin Peaks” (2010).

Surfer Blood - "Twin Peaks" (2010)

The Animals - "We Gotta Get out of This Place" (1965)

And for absolutely no other reason than the fact that the chorus is awesome:

The Animals - "We Gotta Get out of This Place (Chorus)" (1965)

Note: “We Gotta Get out of This Place” was originally written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil. You can hear a demo version here:

    50 ways to say goodbye by train sounds like phantom of the opera. nearly every person that comments on that song says that.

    Good find! Listening now. It actually really kicks in with that similarity more on this iteration of that riff at around 6 min. That’s about when the LSD starts to kick in.
