The Beatles “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da”
from The Beatles (Apple 2009) —There are those who say this song is too light for rock'n'roll - but gee whillikers, it makes me feel so good every time I hear it.
Neil Young & Crazy Horse “Travel On”
from Americana (Reprise 2012) N —It took a while, but eventually I decided to fully embrace this record. Putting Crazy Horse to work on folk songs turns out to be brilliant.
The Minutemen “Political Song For Michael Jackson to Sing”
from Double Nickels on the Dime (SST 1984) —I hear this and see D. Boon jumping around on stage as thrilled to play music as anybody I've ever seen.
Talking Heads “Girlfriend Is Better”
from Speaking In Tongues (sire 1983) —Somehow this song always brings a smile to my face - that stuttering, elastic bassline, those squiggling synth sounds, and the general sense of oddity from David Byrne.
from The Complete John Peel Sessions (Virgin 2008) —Howard Devoto was originally in the Buzzcocks, and this was a song he did there. The revamped version for Magazine is cool, too, and only found on this album.
The Vibrators “Baby Baby”
from Pure Mania (CBS 1977) —These guys were older than the punk rockers, but they made a darned convincing punk record themselves.
Slade “Leave Them Girls Alone”
from B-Sides (Salvo 2007) —Even their b-sides rocked hard.
Thelma Cooper “Talk To Me Daddy” (Flyright 2000) —Ending with a bit of stockholm syndrome blues, sexy except for that verse about the bruised arm.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
