Got The Fever

Wednesday, August 30, 2006


I had to pick up the gauntlet thrown my way by the good DJ jabartlett over at The Hits Just Keep On Comin’. He mentioned this meme and I thought I’d try it out.

It’s not as easy as it looks. Being a total music whore, being asked to choose one, and only one, really is against my nature. But, I did try to keep it at one.

Of course if I had to choose at knifepoint, without pause, the first diarrheal flood of thought to slide out of my head - these might be my choices.

  • A fine effort. I was tempted to say "Curtains" as my favorite Elton song before I went with "Rocket Man." And picking Robert Palmer's
    "You Really Got Me" as favorite cover song shows a lot of style.

    I think maybe I skipped "favorite cover song." I'll have to think about that one.

  • You have terrible taste, not one song you mention is the best by any given group, you wasted a lot of time for nothing putting this ridiculous list together.

  • What no Sonics, Remains, Chocolate Watchband, Kingsmen, Real glam, no Sweet, Slade, T.Rex, Alvin Stardust, Garry Glitter.

    OK gimme da.....let me set ya up with some Merda and Purple Image. Total stone hard groove.

    Hey K-man heck some of the rare stuff on Cold Heat and some other comps.

    Gotta run, George has just parked the mothership out front and neighbors are gonna freak - maybe it's the Sun Ra that sumabitch has got blasting through 1000 watt JVC's.
