Twenty-five tunes you've never heard because you were not listening.: #20 Spinal Tap -- Short and Sweet

Here we are folks! With some delay we have arrived at track number twenty. For this one we are  staying in the U.K. A nonfictional song by a fictional band. I'm not certain when the fictional Spinal Tap was formed, you can look it up.

The point is, this tune's got Nick Lowe written all over it. I wouldn't be surprised if Nick Lowe had a hand in producing some of the Spinal Tap recordings. I will try to remember too feature some Nick Lowe when I do the list of personal favorites.

I give you all the Boogie Woogie stylings of  Short and Sweet, and remember, list Spinal Tap above the puppet show on the marque!

And now I have learned that this track features John Mayer and Steve Vai, no wonder it is so funky. Also, this tune is featured on Guitar Hero and Lego Guitar Hero. So, maybe you have heard it and I wasn't listening?
