Post-Diana Ross The Supremes went out swinging. “Stoned Love” was their biggest hit during the era and one helluva a great soul song.
“Silent Running” by Mike & the Mechanics was one of those songs that haunts your subconscious in the best possible way.
I have a Labor Day weekend tradition where I play The Doors “Summer’s Almost Gone”. Seemed fitting to make it today’s “That Dandy Classic Track of the Day”.
It’s the month of ‘September’ and no one ever made it sound better than Earth, Wind & Fire, which is why they’re the Dandy Classic Track of the Day.
For our 50th Dandy Track of the Day I picked my favorite Radiohead song “Let Down”, from one of my favorite albums ever, which Dandy Classic will review on the podcast for their upcoming 50th episode, ‘OK Computer’ from 1997.
“Atomic” is my favorite Blondie track. Featuring a classic spaghetti-western-like riff and Debbie Harry at her sardonic best this track is a great change of pace in the context of other Blondie hits.
One day when playing “Rock Band 2” on my PS3 in 2008 the Silversun Pickups entered my world. It’s been part of it ever since.
“If” by Janet Jackson is my jam! The second single from her sexually liberated ‘janet.’ 1993 this song was mash-up before it was a thing. It rocks AND you can dance your ass of to it.
‘Secret Meeting’ is the lead-off track from the 2005 release by Cincinnati, OH indie rock band The National called ‘Alligator’ and one of my favorite tracks of the aughts.
In a career full of epic songs “Achilles Last Stand” for Led Zeppelin might be the most bombastically excellent of them all from 1976’s ‘Presence’ album.
