Moon’s Song of the Week: Johnny Got A Boom Boom by Imelda May


Moon’s doing requests this week. It’s my lovely wife’s birthday tomorrow and since she’s an avid fan of Rockabilly femme fatale, Imelda May, Moon decided to dedicate our feature to one of her splendid tracks.

We’ve both been in love with Imelda May and her music ever since her barnstorming performance on Jools Holland’s New Year’s Eve show last year. Here fiery vocals and filthy double bass evoke images of a life led dangerously and the video is as cool as the track. It’s music to dance, music to drink to and music to rob banks to. Best grab those Ed Brubaker books again.

Happy birthday, Fi!
