10 Songs: Thursday, March 26th, 2015

Sam The Sham _ The Pharaohs _Wooly Bully_

1 Sam The Sham and The Pharaohs Wooly Bully – The classic garage rocker everybody started their career with  a flipped out Mexican holy surf guitar… just about immortal by now, that lick can ride anywhere – A

2 Four Tops I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch) – A pop soul masterpiece, with Levi’s soaring baritone on this old time bubblegum meets young America meets soul masterpiece – A

3 Rolling Stones (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction – Jagger’s vocal tour de force of post-teen angst meets a girl on a losing streak and, of course, Keith’s greatest riff – A+

4 We Five You Were On My Mind – This is the folk song cum soft rocker with that “I’ve got troubles litany…” for a chorus – B

5 Righteous Brothers You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ – The poster boy for blue eyed soul – A+
6 Petula Clark Downtown – I saw Petula perform this a coupla years ago and she mentioned it was a New York song and not actually downtown, more like midtown… – A+

7 Beatles Help! – John Lennon’s cry from the heart disguised as the title song from a movie – A

8 Herman’s Hermits Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat – Ah yes, le beat groups. Mever forgiven for not being the Beatles or the Stones and still third runner up, this has a groovy guitar break – A

9 Elvis Presley Crying In The Chapel – the amazing thing about Elvis Presley is every time you hear him, you are taken back anew about how he always sounded great… listening to this hit from 1965 and I’m pulled short yet again… A

10 Temptations My Girl – Timeless classic of love and devotion – A
