“Silent Running” by Mike & the Mechanics was one of those songs that haunts your subconscious in the best possible way.
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.
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.
“When My Time Comes” by Dawes is destined to be a one-day standard. It’s simply too good to be denied forever, right?…
“You Look So Fine” by Garbage is about as good as alternative rock-meets-techno got in a strange era for post-grunge bands looking to not only survive but thrive.
“There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” is the perfect song to introduce someone to The Smiths with. Off 1986’s “The Queen Is Dead” this one is one of their best.
The Stylistics are 1970’s R & B at it’s finest. They came swinging out-of-the-gate with the timeless “You Are Everything” on their 1971 debut.
