This Day in Music History (Sort Of)

Temperance tackles a really big case on this week's Bones.

Our friends at History.com just keep on teaching us stuff, and we love them for it.  For example, did you know that it was on this day in 1990 that fossil hunter Susan Hendrickson discovers three huge bones jutting out of a cliff near Faith, South Dakota. They turn out to be part of the largest-ever Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton ever discovered, a 65 million-year-old specimen dubbed Sue, after its discoverer.

Hmmmm, I wonder how we’re going to tie this into a music related post?  I wonder how we’re going to tie it in two ways for Two Way Thursday, which is a thing we just created….

An obvious choice we know.  We really wish we had video of Whippoorwill’s cover of the song, as it’s possibly our favorite cover ever, but instead here’s Bolan doing it as a duet with a Debbie Reynolds type named Cilla Black…enjoy?

And, oh what’s this?  A THIRD tie in?  Making it a Three Way Thursday?  Oh snap!  We’re crazy up in here!

(ahem)

We’ve probably posted this video before on the site, but as it might be the greatest video ever made (yeah you heard me OK GO) and it’s about a Prehistoric Dog, then you should crank it up and raid the fridge for all the beer you have in there.
