Going Faster Miles An Hour

The Modern Lovers recorded three demos of Road Runner during the early 70’s, once with John Cale producing and two times with Kim Fowley. I like the way the words change from version to version. After Jonathan Richman broke up the Modern Lovers, he recorded a very different version of the song for a 45 that was released by Beserkley Records in 1977. Which one is best? All of them! It’s the best “Sister Ray” re-write ever!
