10 Songs: Tuesday, December 29th, 2015

Aimee-Mann-Thats-Just-What-Y-57184

1 — That’s Just What You Are – Aimee Mann – Proof of how finite talent is, this song, this album, was even better than Bachelor # 2 and much better than all that Magnolia,  one of the great women vs men, conceptual battle – A

2 – Frankenstein – Aimee Mann – Here is the flipside, be scared of what you ask for – A

3 – She’s A Woman – The Beatles – Best line? “She don’t give boys the eye…” I used to think he was saying “don’t give boys an iron…” which makes perfect sense of course – A+

4 – Whine And Grine/Stand Down Margaret – The English Beat – Nice match here – A

5 – Do The Dog – The Specials – Straight up dance track – A

6 – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band Reprise – The Beatles – Shorter, sweeter, tighter – A

7 – Miracle man (Demo) – Elvis Costello – Added verse: “doing the handsomest man in the world, doing him again and again, but I’m the one you see at night and I don’t want to see it all in vain”. The question is did he dump it because it was clumsy or because it was too revealing? – A

8 – Silver Machine – Hawkwind – In case you thought there was no difference between the two bands, Lemmy stripped it down from here – A

9 – Dream World – The Monkees – A real beauty, those horns are terrific and the piano on the bridge is both sreamy and a break up of the dream – A

10 – No Reply – The Beatles – Unreachable, every time he sang around about this period, he was just… like it’s stupid… “I’m A Loser” was next and the impeccable cover of  “Mr Moonlight” arrives five songs later – A+
