Sam And Dave, "Hold On, I'm A Comin'"

>> Sunday, March 11, 2012

What is the name of this song? It's copyrighted as "Hold On, I'm A Comin'", the album and what Sam and Dave actually sing is, "Hold On, I'm Comin'".

The finest gem in the Wikipedia entries listed above is the claim that the title of the song came from Isaac Hayes telling either his songwriting partner David Porter or Sam & Dave member Dave Prater (the entries include two different, understandably confused versions) to get his ass out of the bathroom. Whereupon one of these men allegedly shouted from the bathroom, "Hold on, I'm comin'." That can't possibly be true. It's too good to be true. It's gotta be true. (It oughta be true.)

One can only hope he had toilet paper stuck in his shoe when he got back.
