I was woken at around 3am today by a flasher in my bedroom.
Further investigation revealed that the flashing thing was some serious lightning going on outside.
This was some proper horror film stuff, where it would be accompanied by a soundtrack designed to heighten the feeling of dread.
Instead, I, like many other people who witness thunder, lightning, or indeed a way of loving somebody which can be construed as “frightening” (subtext: back off buddy!), found I had this tune bouncing off the insides of my brain.
Many of you will know the Eddie Floyd version, or perhaps the Amii Stewart one, but if I have to choose, give me this version every time:
Archie Bell & The Drells – Knock On Wood
