Way Before There Was Devo, There Were The Spotnicks (For Your Viewing & Listening Pleasure)

Video

Swedish guitar-group The Spotnicks with The Rocket Man (1962). This song with its inspiring melody, which is restlessly driving on was adapted by Bo Winberg from (the) Russian folksong “Polyushka Polye” or “Polyushko-Pole” (Cossack Patrol/Meadowland/Song Of The Plains/Oh My Fields/Cavalry of the Steppes).
