A good Monday to you, Bionic brothers and sisters. In this installment of ‘Music for Monday’ we throw in a slight curve and present Steve Martin performing his hit single, “King Tut,” live in 1979. Stick with the clip for a surprise appearance by another 1970s icon.
For your enjoyment, I’ve also included Martin’s original performance of the tune on Saturday Night Live in ’78.
Released as a single in April of 1978, “King Tut” sold over a million copies and rose as high as #17 on the Billboard Hot 100. Funky Tut!
Live with special guest, 1979
