a note about this track
The band's name comes from a baseball anecdote.
During the 1962 season, New York Mets center fielder Richie Ashburn and Venezuelan shortstop Elio ChacÃ³n found themselves colliding in the outfield. When Ashburn went for a catch, he would scream, "I got it! I got it!" only to run into the 160-pound ChacÃ³n, who spoke only Spanish.
Ashburn learned to yell, "Â¡Yo la tengo! Â¡Yo la tengo!" which is "I have it" in Spanish.

a note about this track
Bettye LaVette (born Betty Haskins in Muskegon, Michigan, 1946) is an American soul singer who cut her first record at 16, but achieved only intermittent fame until her 2005 record, I've Got My Own Hell to Raise. Her style combines elements of country, rock, soul, funk, and gospel, which has prevented her from being easily marketed.
