Song of the Day: 'Come and Get Your Love' by Real McCoy

Because I've already used the original Redbone version of this classic '70s confection for my Song of the Day, I'm using a 1990s cover I didn't even know about until yesterday. Reason being: The Wall Street Journal profiled "Come and Get Your Love" in its Anatomy of a Song feature this week -- and I'm curious if anyone else was as surprised as I was that Lolly Vegas got a sole writing credit given how much heavy lifting brother Pat did.

You may recall Cyndi Lauper borrowed from it for her "Hey Now (Girls Just Want to  Have Fun)" revamp.
