Line(s) of the Day #StuckintheMiddlewithyou

Stealers Wheel

Clowns to the left of me,
Jokers to the right, here I am,
Stuck in the middle with you

Taken from the song Stuck in the Middle with You from Stealers Wheel, from their self titled album (1973). Originally written after a meeting with record executives and producers, the song became is now most famous after its use in a rather gruesome Reservoir Dogs scene.

  1. For us old-timers now there’s before RESERVOIR DOGS and after. Remember this well back in the day. Catchy. Too bad later generations will only know it for the “that scene.”

    • It did pretty well when it was initially released, but yeah, it has a life of its own now. First time I heard it was in the film. Sure that goes for plenty others. And to think the band themselves didn’t initially want it in there.

  2. I think I only know this song because of Reservoir Dogs but it’s got a home in my Spotify list forever πŸ™‚ the lyrics are actually pretty interesting!
