The S.O.S. Band “Take Your Time (Do It Right)”
from Club Epic Vol. 1: A Collection of Classic Dance Mixes (Epic 1990) —I always figured this classic was produced and written by Jam and Lewis, but it turns out they had their first big hit without those guys. At any rate, let's dance!


Cerrone “Love in C Minor”
from Disco Classics (Varese 2003) —Seriously, I am still amazed at how many people purport to hate disco. How can you hate something this full of life?


Thelma Houston “Don't Leave Me This Way”
from The Disco Years Vol. 1: Turn the Beat Around (Rhino 1990) —Or how can you hate singing like this?


Meshell Ndegeocello “Die Young”
from Devil's Halo ((RED) Downtown Records 2009) —For those who want to dance real slow, while feeling angry.


Robert Glasper Experiment “Smells Like Teen Spirit”
from Black Radio (Blue Note 2012) —If you know me, you know I don't dig Nirvana. But this recontextured version of the song is plenty fun.


Booker T. “Can't Wait”
from Sound the Alarm (Stax Records url 2013) N  —I don't know who Estelle is, but she does a good job singing this.


The Clash “Rebel Waltz”
from Sandinista (Epic 1980) —I'm hypnotized by this cut every time I hear it.


Nicholas Tremulis Orchestra “If God Were the Devil”
from For the Baby Doll (self 2013) N  —If God were the devil, he'd know just what to say to make you mine.


Tim Easton “Porcupine” (New West www.newwestrecords.com 2009) —Easton isn't the most consistent guy out there, but boy, when he hits a groove, he comes up with great stuff.


Randall Bramblett “Roll”
from The Bright Spots (New West Records www.newwestrecords.com 2013) N  —This is one of those guys who has been around forever, but which I only just finally realized is really, really good.


Billy Bragg “Swallow My Pride”
from Tooth & Nail (Cooking Vinyl 2013) N  —I still haven't warmed up to this whole album, but this is a really pretty song that reminds me of Nick Lowe's recent work, albeit without as great a singer.


James Cotton “Cotton Mouth Man” (Alligator 2013) N  —Cotton teams up with Joe Bonamassa for a scorcher here.


Bonnie Raitt “Ain't Gonna Let You Go”
from Slipstream (Redwing Records 2012) —Raitt's guitar sizzles on this cut - what a tone!


The Mavericks “Born to Be Blue”
from In Time (The Valory Music Company 2013) N  —These guys are just ridiculously great.


J.J. Cale “Clyde”
from Naturally (Mercury 1971) —Clyde plays electric bass, he plays it with finesse and grace.


Tim Lee 3 “You're Not There”
from Devil's Rope (Cool Dog Sound 2013) N  —Love these guys!


The Del-Lords “Flying”
from Elvis Club (GB Music www.gbmusic.com 2013) N  —Why aren't these guys better known? Why can't Scott Kempner, who writes brilliant rock songs, better known?


The Kinks “Brother”
from Sleepwalker (Arista 1977) —Not their best received album, but this is a really good song.


Kate & Anna McGarrigle “Excursion a Venise”
from The French Record (Hannibal 1982) —One of my all-time favorite records has only the occasional word I can understand. Wish I would have had this one when I was actually studying French.


Tom Jones “Soul of a Man”
from Spirit In the Room (Rounder www.rounder.com 2012) N  —Asking the questions from the pits of despair. Devastating!


Marshall Chapman “Call the Lamas”
from Blaze of Glory (TallGirl 2013) N  —I've come to like the remake of this wonderful song even better than the original.


Son Volt “Tears of Change”
from Honky Tonk (Rounder www.rounder.com 2013) N L —It's not exactly honky tonk, but it's plenty sweet.


Sturgill Simpson “Water in a Well”
from High Top Mountain (High Top Mountain 2013) N  —This is more like honky tonk.


The Gourds “Ink and Grief”
from Old Mad Joy (Vanguard www.vanguardrecords.com 2011) —That's three songs in a row with steel guitar! I should win a prize.


Ray Price “Heart Over Mind”
from The Essential Ray Price (Columbia 2007) —I just love his singing. Oh, and more steel guitar.


Willie Nelson “Keep Me From Blowing Away”
from Moment of Forever (Lost Highway 2008) —Willie Nelson is an absolute treasure!


John Prine “You Stayed Away Too Long”
from Unsung Hero: A Tribute to the Music of Ron Davies (Little Chickadee 2013) N  —I don't even know who Ron Davies is, but this is a cool song, and he's got some awfully talented people on this tribute.


Dale Watson & His Lone Stars “Smokey Old Bar”
from El Rancho Azul (Red House www.redhouserecords.com 2013) N  —This crazy beat underneath Dale's sinuous vocals makes for a weird but enjoyable feel.


Vic Chesnutt “In My Way, Yes”
from Silver Lake (New West www.newwestrecords.com 2003) —One of his greatest songs - this man had so much talent.


Richard Barone “Cry Baby Cry”
from Cool Blue Halo 25th Anniversary Celebration (Music Video Distribution 2012) —I often forget John Lennon even sang this - that's how completely Richard Barone owns this song to me.


Nataly Dawn “Back to the Barracks”
from How I Knew Her (Nonesuch 2013) N  —This song reminds me of Kurt Weill.


They Might Be Giants “Circular Karate Chop”
from Nanobots (Idlewild unk 2013) N  —Still tuneful after more than 25 years. Still clever, too.


Tommy James & The Shondells “Gotta Get Back to You”
from Anthology (Rhino 1989) —That bass player is having some fun here. Actually, they all are.


Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians “Goodnight I Say”
from Fegmania! (Yep Roc www.yeproc.com 1984) —This was actually the first album with the Egyptians as his backing band. I'd forgotten that, probably because I didn't hear this one until after he'd done another one or two.


Dolly Varden “Thank You”
from For a While (Mid-Fi 2013) N  —One of my fave albums of the year so far.


Johnny Marr “New Town Velocity”
from The Messenger (Sire Records 2013) N  —Every time this song starts, I think it's going to be Ian Gomm, but, even though it never is, I'm still happy with it.


Big Star “Life Is White”
from Radio City (Ardent 1974) —There is a new documentary out on Big Star, and it's supposed to be exceptionally good.


The Painkillers “Dork On the Moon”
from Painkillers 25th Anniversary Release (Euclid Records 2011) —St. Louis band of the 80s who deserved way more acclaim than they got.


The Small Faces “Something I Want to Tell You”
