The Hollies – Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress

This is one of those songs with a story, while the statute of limitations may have past on some of the deeds involved since 1975 there are some stories that you can’t share till all of the participants are dead, or the government agencies of all involved parties declassify the events, or you write that tell all autobiography.

Till then make up your own. The opening setting is a bar in the capitol city of a foreign country. The players are an assortment of young military guys from an handful of countries, and several beautiful young ladies of the any time of the day persuasion (three of these ladies don’t speak any language that anyone else does), two tattoo artists, four cab drivers, various tourists of mixed nationalities as extras, and a gaggle of local constables.  Mix this all with a various rivalries, lots of alcohol, and the edge of crazy that can only occur at the best of times.   Just remember, there was no youtube back then and that we all love happy endings!
