The Donnas “Take It Off” (2002)

A ripsnorting tune I can relish over and over, just like the ridiculous movie "Dodgeball" in which it memorably appeared.... Read More

Eagles “Those Shoes” (1979)

A familiar looking pair of shoes led to an unfamiliar office fiasco. "Oh no you can't do that, once you started wearin' those shoes."... Read More

Freddie King “Going Down” (1971)

Guitar tone. It's a hard-to-pinpoint aesthetic that's challenging to define or describe. Yet it's still easy to recognize that Freddie King had some of the greatest tone of all time.... Read More

Silk Sonic “Leave The Door Open” (2021)

I've never had a song get stuck in my head like this throwback gem by Silk Sonic. It's a good problem, but it might be making me a little crazy.... Read More

Sidekick supremacy, however, must go to Springsteen’s powerful and yet even more poignant role supporting Warren Zevon... Read More

Jeff Healey “See The Light” (1988)

..I did once, however, get a chance to witness another blind guitarist play live, this one an utterly mesmerizing dynamo named Jeff Healey, and it was one of the most unforgettable performances I’ve witnessed in my life. Healey is one of the ten greatest guitarists I’ve ever heard. Hard stop. No qualifier.... Read More

Gerry Rafferty “Baker Street” (1978)

..there’s an extremely prominent saxophone, a conspicuous line that has been called the most recognizable sax riff in pop music history, which was played by guy named Raphael Ravenscroft, an unheralded, utterly unrecognizable session musician who suggested he play on an alto sax a part that was originally intended to be sung...
