"Mustang Sally" is a song by Wilson Pickett, released as a single in 1967. It is a cover of the song of the same name by Sir Mack Rice, originally released as a single in 1966. It appeared in the Miami Vice episode "One Way Ticket".

Notes

  • According to music historian Tom Shannon, the song started out as a joke when Della Reese's bandleader wanted a new Ford Mustang. Mack Rice changed the title from "Mustang Mama" to "Mustang Sally" after a suggestion from Aretha Franklin.
  • The song has been covered by such artists as The Rascals, The Chambers Brothers, The Kingsmen, and Bruce Springsteen, and is a staple of blues bands across the world.
