Song of the Day: Larry Williams, “Slow Down”

Singer, songwriter and pianist Larry Williams would be 86 today. He wrote and recorded a number of classic songs, including "Boney Maronie," "Short Fat Fannie," and "She Said Yeah." John Lennon was a fan and The Beatles recorded several of his songs, including "Dizzy Miss Lizzie," "Bad Boy," and "Slow Down." The latter was the B side to "Dizzy Miss Lizzie," which only reached #69 on the Hot 100 in 1958. The Beatles’ cover didn’t do much better, but it’s a great song nonetheless.
