Unstucking Bob

Words and Music by Matthew P. Hanley (BMI)


“Unstucking Bob” is about two guys going down to Memphis to attempt to rescue a friend who is stuck inside. The song’s origin came about from a misremembering of the Bob Dylan song “Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again.” A comical, ode to the great Southern music city, the song ends with the pair of rescuers “also stuck inside.”

“Unstucking Bob” is a mid-tempo groovy song recorded during the sessions for the Starring MH album “Are We Certain?” Featuring Michael Birch as a duet partner, it appears in the BandCamp Super Deluxe Version.
