The 5 O’Clock Shadow remembers Tony Sheridan today who passed away this week. Sheridan was a crucial figure in the early career of the Beatles, who joined him as a backing band on their cover of Brother Bones’ “Sweet Georgia Brown.”

If this song sounds familiar, it should! Brother Bones’ version is the theme song of the Harlem Globetrotters, but who knew it had lyrics?

Take a listen below.
