Chris de Burgh – Lady in Red
Electric drums, the gentle guitar riff played with overbite, classic synth, and Chris’s smooth ‘mmmms.’ You cannot get any better. Literally; it’s Partridge endorsed you know.
Weezer – Undone (the Sweater Song)
Made when Weezer were on the precipice of the frat-rock genre. If only they stopped at this song about pulling a sweater thread until there’s nothing left, instead of going on to record ‘Beverley Hills.’
Velvet Underground – Venus in Furs
‘Venus in Furs’ is drone music with a mysticism fetish and very few chords. It sonically aches with its story of love and obsession.
The Cramps – I Wanna Get in Your Pants
Imagine the dancing in Dirty Dancing was actually as sleazy as everyone in the film pretended it was and multiply by a factor of surf. Perfect rock ‘n’ sleaze.
Pissed Jeans – Caught Licking Leather
I have no idea what they’re on about. The drums march on, but everything else bleeds in and out of the track in a fantastically noisy fashion. Brilliant.
