Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ second effort, “You’re Gonna Get It” was their first “gold” record, and had several hits, but my favorite cut is “Hurt”. Love when songs sound like they are almost a tuneup and fit perfectly into the song. Hurt does that.
Bags has a pace that sucks me in. Clairo’s production of this is genius. Every instrument sounds like it’s slowed down and stretched out for maximum effect. I love the piano particularly.
I dunno, it’s been a good post Beatles career for McCartney, but the best music, in general, I think came from George Harrison.
Elton John’s “Step Into Christmas” is the somewhat forgotten rock performer original Christmas song from the 60s and 70s.
“Ties that we’ve made have been broken
by the Lies that pull us apart”
Kurt Vile’s “Pretty Pimpin'” has staying power. I listen to this song at least once a week on Spotify (okay, more), and it never gets old.
What is the greatest song by Pink Floyd?
No, it isn’t this one. This is just David Gilmour.
If you were around in the 1960s and heard radio, you probably remember the song “Pictures of Matchstick Men.” But do you remember who recorded it?
Bringing in the Edwin Hawkins Singers choir was brilliant. The song is joyful and in some ways melancholy both in sound and lyrics. Melanie’s vocals are fantastic.
So, first of all, Slow Death is just a great guitar song, period. It isn’t the original creation of The Dictators, but as far as I’m concerned they own this song.
