SAVE FERRIS – The World Is New
SUCH a catchy horn line right off the top. This song gets people dancing immediately. Love hearing them play this.
GOLDFINGER – This Lonely Place
This was always my favorite Goldfinger song. I’m gonna try to pressure Feldy to play it all tour until he does haha!
DAMONE – Out Here All Night
This band should have gotten some more listens I think. This song is a great rock song and once you hear it you will be singing it all day. Promise.
GARY CLARK, Jr. – Gotta Get Into Something
Gary Clark, Jr. is so damn talented that he can slide in and out of different genres like most people change shirts. And always flawless! This song he channels his best Stuff Little Fingers and literally tears the roof off the place. Such a ripper!
CHEAP TRICK – Hello There
Is there a better first song that any band can play than this one? Go ahead. Try to think of one. I’ll wait….
DAVID BOWIE – The Jean Genie
I’ve been listening to ‘Aladdin Sane’ a lot lately. This song always makes me smile and sing along. Bowie is a god.
THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS – Birdhouse In Your Soul
This song is a perennial sing-along on our bus. Actually, the entire album ‘Flood’ gets pretty heavy rotation. Quirky, original songs. So so good.
DANCEHALL CRASHERS – Sticky
One of the few bands on our ‘bucket list’ of influential bands to tour with. If they ever get back together we will certainly beg them to go on tour. I am a self proclaimed super-fan of this band and this song is one of my favorites.
THE DAMNED – Smash It Up!
I certainly love both parts of this song, but when part 2 kicks in, so do we. One of the best songs ever written, period. Always excited when someone plays this.
DESCENDENTS – Thank You
Listen to the song. You’ll get why it made the list.
