We wanted to post Ace Frehley’s fantastic “New York Groove” to celebrate the Mets making it to the series, but alas, that didn’t happen. But here’s the song anyway, with a plea: If anyone happens to have the original version by some group named Hello, could you please send a link (or even an MP3) to firstname.lastname@example.org? We’ve never heard it, and though we can’t imagine how a song that President Bush once called “drunk with swagger” could get any better, we’re curious.
UPDATE: Wow, that was fast: Thanks to the tipster who sent along the Hello version.
