CD arrived on time and as described-top quality collection of some possibly "unknown to many" songs-along with some top rated classics- suitable to enhance any existing soul collection-do not hesitate to buy this CD!
Strap in, as primo belter Chaka Khan harnesses her most primal instincts and delivers a fierce clinic on diva ad libbing. It's about as sappy as they come, but Baby Huey smartly slips in a line about how love doesn't require a credit card, which, as anyone who's gone on a date in the past 50 years can tell you, is totally bull. But it's a sweet thought.
Maybe not surprising, coming from a band named after an amphetamine, but the U. The lyrics, about songwriter Kevin Rowland's youth as a sexually repressed Catholic kid, verge Album) dirty while remaining innocuous enough for your work-party karaoke sing-along.
Fine Young Cannibals were so much weirder and cooler than you remember. But you could still smash faces at the roller rink to it.
In this opening cut, big sloppy washes of distorted guitar crashes over a rigid drum machine, as Roland Gift lifts it to the sky with his helium falsetto. The lyrics pour out in a nervy jumble of apocalyptic Album), military danger and mass-media frenzy, with pointed name-drops of pop-culture figures Lenny Bruce, Leonid Brezhnev, Leonard Bernstein and Lester Bangs united only by their initials.
But its cut-through-the-chaos message still connects with anyone aiming to clear out a polluted stream of consciousness. Is this song really about that? The opening tune on Milwaukee-buskers-turned-alt-rock-superstars Violent Femmes' self-titled debut starts with one of the more recognizable guitar licks of the modern era, and then proceeds to sing about, um, masturbation—or so everyone thought, Album).
That interpretation was disputed by frontman Gordon Album) in an interview with the Village Voice inbut one thing isn't up for debate: "Blister in the Sun" is a catchy, unfettered romp that sounds just as fresh now. Oh, that ill-fated bassline. Before Vanilla Ice famously ripped off, er, was inspired by the work of Queen bassist John Deacon, that subtle, infectious plucking heralded the meeting of two wildly influential rock icons. Considering the titanic forces at work in this tune, it's relatively understated, but it does ultimately climb to the sparkling heights that both Bowie and Mercury inhabited with such ease.
As critics continued to peg rap as a passing novelty, this big, lisping teddy bear from Long Island thumbed his nose at such stuck-up stupidity. His records were as much comedy albums and demonstrations of sampling as pretentious works of art, which made them even greater works of art.
Eventually, he had the shit sued out of him, and hip-hop was forever changed. Has a drum introduction ever sounded this big? This platinum-certified single is essentially Australia's unofficial national anthem, incorporating country pride, lots of local slang "fried-out Kombi," "head full of zombie" and even the tune of a popular Aussie children's song, "Kookaburra," for the flute part.
Insanely popular in its home country, the song also made waves internationally, shifting millions of copies and becoming an instant karaoke classic. We'll still pass on that Vegemite sandwich, though, thanks. A firm salute, please, for veteran rock chick Pat Benatar, who commanded the airwaves with a take-charge attitude, a spandex wardrobe and the voice to back up both of them. Each and every element in the song is dancing. By the middle of the decade, the band was mining house music heavily enough to join a union in Chicago though always balancing disco ecstasy with melancholy in true Mancunian fashion.
A New Order single is like if architecture was flush with hormones. The album, released inwent on to become the second-highest-selling album in history, cementing the Aussie outfit's status as one of the biggest hard rock bands of all time.
By this point, you know where you stand on this one: You hear Jonathan Cain's piano intro, and you either swell up with joy or wince in pain.
Whatever your take, you're about to get flattened by an emotional steamroller: four minutes of undiluted underdog yearning and a portrait of anonymous lost souls praying for luck and love on the streets of nonexistent South Detroit, starring Steve Perry's scarily, swoopingly elastic voice.
This song represents the apex of scream-along arena-scale pop-rock. When it came to hair and emotion, bigger was always better. When she strode on the scene inNeneh Cherry was one of those pop stars who made you do a double take—what the? The stepdaughter of jazz musician Don Cherry, Neneh was raised in Stockholm, New York and London, which explains her deliciously odd accent and assured street smarts.
Turning jaunty Motown influences into icy synth pop may sound like sacrilege, but that's exactly what English duo Soft Cell did when it covered Gloria Jones's funky stomper in This is longing on a supernatural scale, and Tyler holds her own against the thundering arrangement as she roars out some of the least quiet desperation ever known to pop music. Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr was allegedly spurred to write this poppy upbeat single after jealously eyeing the radio success of labelmates Aztec Camera.
Whatever the motivation, we're glad he did. Though it didn't top the charts upon release, the tune became an anthem for the ages, pairing Marr's jangly guitar runs with a delightfully hyperactive bass line and Morrissey's dandified yarn about male affection. If you're in an '80s cover band and you're not playing this song on a nightly basis—well, there's just absolutely no way you're not. Of all of the iconic guitar riffs on this list, the opening line from "Sweet Child o' Mine" takes the air-splitting cake.
The third single from Guns N' Roses' shining debut, 's Appetite for Destructionit was the band's first and only number one single. More than three decades on, it never fails to make us sing our fool hearts out on the dance floor. You could be forgiven for thinking Janet Jackson Album) as a fully-formed superstar, but in actuality her first two albums were met with mixed reviews and achieved only modest success.
Catchier than a flytrap, more sordid than your craziest night out, Rick James hit the summit of his career with the wild funk of "Super Freak. Even that sampling by MC Hammer can't diminish its greatness.
