The Rain Song // Led Zeppelin

Upon us all a little rain must fall

I am taking 7:40 off from what I’m working on to listen to this. You should, too.

Fire Woman // The Cult

After watching the Republican debate, I cannot get this song out of my head. That doesn’t mean anything. 

At the end of the 80’s, when kick ass guitar playing was moving from “critically endangered” and dangerously close to “extinct in the wild,” Billy Duffy (and Slash) had other thoughts.

Move On // Jet

Was poking around my iTunes library for a song about moving. This isn’t quite that, but it’s a beauty just the same. These guys clearly wore holes in their copies of “Sticky Fingers” when they were kids just like I did, though they are a fair bit younger and now that I think about it, I’m not sure you can wear a hole in a CD…

10:34, Flinders Street Station
I’m lookin’ down the tracks
Uniformed man asking am I paid up
Why would I wanna be that?

Rocks Off // The Rolling Stones

Best opening track ever?

When you fire this up hard on your headphones, dig the way Mick Taylor’s (right) and Keith Richards’ (left) guitar parts complement each other.

I’m zipping through the days at lightning speed
Plug in, flush out and fire the fuckin’ feed
Heading for the overload
Splattered on the dirty road
Kick me like you’ve kicked before
I can’t even feel the pain no more.

XTC - Mayor Of Simpleton

The Mayor of Simpleton // XTC

Listen to this bass line. Colin Moulding combines the pop genius of Paul McCartney and the OMFG chops of Geddy Lee, and may be the single most underrated rock musician of the last 25 years.

Also, this is my go to song when I’ve been earwormed by something unpleasant. This perfect little ditty is 100% guaranteed to cleanse the aural palate.
