Franz Ferdinand “Fresh Strawberries”
from Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action (Domino 2013) N  —One wouldn't ordinarily think of the Kinks as an influence on these guys, but damned if this song couldn't have been easily put on Arthur or Lola Vs. Powerman.


Me'Shell Ndegeocello “Dirty World”

Buddy Guy “$1000 Bill”
from The Complete Chess Studio Sessions (MCA 1992) —Such as this actual 1960s Buddy Guy cut, co-write credit to Berry Gordy, which means the similarity to "Money" is entirely on purpose.

Neil Young “Lost In Space”
from Hawks & Doves (Reprise 1980) —I still think of Dr. Smith and Will Robinson and the rest when I see the words "Lost in Space." Nothing was more important to me when I was 8.
