Farourites: Lime Spiders' Slave Girl

I remember listening to a hardcore show on Ryerson University radio CKLN back in the late 80's. It introduced me to a number of great bands and I heard some fantastic songs. One that immediately caught my ear and hasn't let go since is "Slave Girl" by Lime Spiders. Many years later it was covered by Goo Goo Dolls (when they were a rock band - before "Name" became a big hit).

This sounds like the original version.

This one looks like it was from a relatively recent performance.

Here are the Goo Goo Dolls doing it at Red Rocks. I felt that the studio version from A Boy Named Goo was closer to the original.

Still a great and powerful song.
