Blinded By the Light (Manfred Mann's Earth Band) w/ Lead Singer Chris Thompson - Episode 510
It’s one of the great misheard lyrics of all time: “Wrapped up like a douche, another runner in the night.” This week we go straight to the source: Chris Thompson, lead singer of Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, joins us to talk about the song, the weird methodology of Manfred Mann, and yes of course, being the mouthpiece of maybe the most oft-misheard lyric in rock history.
- Chris’s odd audition for the band, and how he maybe never actually got the gig
- The transition from Bruce Springsteen’s original version to the Manfred Mann version
- Timing is everything!
As always, leave us a review to help the show get in front of more folks, and connect with us for Shenanigans, merch, and more.
