Myrmecological Hot Links

Cadillac Walk, Moon Martin (1978) John David “Moon” Martin had a minor hit with Cadillac Walk (as recorded by Willie DeVille) and also wrote Robert Palmer‘s mega hit Bad Case of Loving You. Both songs first appeared on Martin’s 1978 album Shots from a Cold Nightmare but received little attention. Popular in the UK but relatively unknown in the US, he opened for / played with the likes of Janis Joplin, Linda Ronstadt and Jimi Hendrix. Many of his songs had “moon” in the lyrics, hence the nickname.
