"Mustang Sally" is an R&B/straight-forward bluesfirst recorded by Mack Rice in 1965.
It gained greater popularity when it was covered by Wilson Pickett on a single the following year.
Pickett's version was also included on his 1967 album The Wicked Pickett.
According to music historian Tom Shannon, the song started as a joke when Della Reese wanted a new Ford Mustang.
Rice called the early version "Mustang Mama," but changed the title after Aretha Franklin suggested "Mustang Sally."
Rice's version made it to #15 on the U.S. R&B charts in 1965.
Pickett's version climbed to #6 R&B and #23 Pop in 1966, and #4 in Canada (RPM Magazine).
In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked Wilson Pickett's recording of the song at #434 on a list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
The song dropped seven spots to #441 when the magazine published its 2010 update of the list.
The song featured prominently in the 1991 film The Commitments, and appears on the film's soundtrack album, as sung by Andrew Strong.
Wilson's version was also set to the Pecos Bill segment from Disney's Melody Time in DTV.
The song was played by NASA Mission Control as a morning wakeup song for astronaut Sally Ride on one of her Space Shuttle missions.
The song was played by K.I.T.T in one of the episodes of Knight Rider (2009).
Mack Rice (born Bonnie Rice (Bonny Rice), 10 November 1933, Clarksdale, Mississippi), is a American songwriter, whose compositions have been performed by many well-known artists, including The Staple Singers, Ike and Tina Turner, Albert King, Johnnie Taylor, Shirley Brown, Rufus Thomas, Etta James, Billy Eckstine, Eddie Floyd, Buddy Guy, The Rascals, Wilson Pickett, Albert Collins, Busta Rhymes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Otis Clay and The Blues Brothers (in Blues Brothers 2000).
Some of his better known songs include "Respect Yourself", "Betcha Can't Kiss Me (Just One Time)", "Cheaper to Keep Her", "Cadillac Assembly Line", "Money Talks", "Cold Women With Warm Hearts", "Do the Funky Penguin, Pt. 1", "It Sho Ain't Me", "Santa Claus Wants Some Lovin'", among others.
His best known composition and only hit as a solo performer is "Mustang Sally."
Rice began his work in the R&B field in the 1950s based in Detroit, performing with the Five Scalders in 1956 and with the Falcons (fellow band members included Eddie Floyd, Wilson Pickett and Joe Stubbs) from 1957 to 1963.
He performed as a solo vocalist in the years to follow, but his biggest successes were as songwriter for other artists on labels like Stax and others in the 1960s and following decades.
He began his solo vocalist career at Stax in 1967, recording on Atco Records beginning in 1968.
Rice is one of the few musicians whose career touched both Motown and Stax Records.
In 1992, backed by the soul band The Dynatones, Rice released his first solo album, "Right Now" on Blue Suit Records.
On it he reprises a number of his hit songs along with a mixture of new tunes.
Rice lives in the Detroit area, and is still performing.
Mustang Sally, think you better slow your mustang down.
Mustang Sally, baby, I think you better slow your mustang down.
You keep on running around, oh baby,
I had to put your big feet on the ground.
Now it's alright.
Well all you wanna do is ride around baby, now ride Sally ride.
said all you wanna do is ride around baby, now ride Sally ride.
Now all you wanna do is ride around baby, now ride Sally ride.
All you wanna do is ride around baby, now ride Sally ride.
One of these early mornings, baby, you gonna be wiping your weeping eyes.
But it's alright.
I bought you a brand new mustang talk about nineteen sixty six.
You come around signifying a woman, come on and let me ride.
