Wrong band, once again

Following up on yesterday’s goofy post, in which we have always enjoyed collecting songs which have the same title as another, more well-known hit, there are those “mistaken identity” singles — bands and artists with the same name as someone more successful.

For instance, Starship here should not be mistaken for the post-Kantner Jefferson Starship. This group was a short-lived collaboration between one of the Monkees and a producer best known for his work with pop idols like Shaun Cassidy.

While its hardly an essential addition to any collection — unless you’re really, really into Mickey Dolenz — their cover of “Johnny B. Goode” is a little more rockin’ than those bloated Starship albums.
