PleasePleaseMe__69922.1294709332.1280.1280

1 – Please Please Me – The Beatles – This is ground zero for Beatlemania and when first written it was a lament but Martin added the harp on the intro and sped it up, and this request for oral sex changed the world – A+

2 – What’d I Say – Ray Charles – Talking about sounds that changed the world, this is a dilly. Where the sublime met the secular – A+

3 – Untitled 3 – Kendrick Lamar – Hardcore truisms that sounds most like a Pimp outtake – A-

4  – The Deportees Club – Elvis Costello – One of his lesser masterpieces but what price “I pray to the saints and all the martyrs for the secret life of Frank Sinatra”? –  A

5 – Bizarre Love Triangle – New Order – Speaking of praying, New Order add tracks to their tears on this synth and drum machine hit – B+

6 – Stressed Out – Twenty One Pilots – I wish I could hear the hook here, everybody reminds me of the Nails nowadays – C+

7 – Work – Rihanna, Drake – That’s some hook she’s got there, you’re caught before the verse kicks in – B+

8 – Cake By The Ocean – DNCE – Terrific on stage, this is a career rebooting hit single, and a well deserved one at that – B+

9 – Goldfinger – Shirley Bassey – Whenever we old timers sneer at Adele and Sam Smith’s, this is why – A+

10 – Shine On You Crazy – Pink Floyd – For Syd – A
