Kings of pop

If the audio stops playing, press stop and allow time for the stream to load.
This week, we're listening to songs that reference the word king. We begin with an Afro triple bill featuring the chilling Crawlin' king snake by John Lee Hooker, a prog double triple bill that of course contains House of the King by Focus, then we go pop and finish on Freddie King's glorious Going Down.
