Time zone: central
Alice Cooper “Public Animal #9”
from School's Out (Warner Brothers 1972) —Remember when music like this scared the living daylights out of adults? I couldn't own Alice Cooper records at the time, though the reason was my dad saw in the paper that people smoked pot at his concert.
Def Leppard “Excitable”
from Hysteria (Mercury 1987) —You bet when they started this song, the crowd stood up, just as they were told. (Although, I didn't see the Hysteria tour, and I'm not sure they did this the two later times I saw them.)
Slade “I Won't Let It 'Appen Agen”
from Slayed? (Polydor 1972) —Noddy Holder. 'Nuff said.
The Raspberries “I Want to Be With You”
from Fresh (RPM 1972) —One of those guitar intros that instantly raises the hair on the back of your neck. And the song keeps them there.
The Gladiators “Pocket Money”
from Dreadlocks the Time Is Now (Virgin 1978) —Back when my friends and I were just discovering reggae, the Gladiators were this mysterious and clearly fantastic group that was really hard to find.
Rosanne Cash “What We Really Want (acoustic version)”
from Interiors (Columbia 1990) —A gorgeous little acoustic version from the bonus tracks edition.
The Rutles “Living in Hope”
from The Rutles (Rhino 1978) —Some of the Rutles songs are really almost as good as the ones they parodied.
Paul Simon “Once Upon a Time There Was an Ocean”
from Surprise (Warner Brothers 2006) —So many of the Paul Simon albums that people ignored were actually excellent - this one, produced by Brian Eno, is full of songs as cool as this one.
Court Yard Hounds “Delight (Something New Under The Sun)”
from Court Yard Hounds CD Album (Columbia 2010) —It's been 7 years since the Dixie Chicks made a record, and 3 since 2/3 of them made one. Maybe we could be delighted by some new music under the sun from these singers.
George Jones “Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes?”
from 50 Years Of Hits (Bandit Records. 2004) —I just found out George Jones passed away - this is a song in which he imagines the world without some of the greats. Nobody will fill his shoes.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
