1. Bob Marley & the Wailers, "No Woman No Cry." What the hell am I supposed to say about Bob Marley that hasn't already been said?
2. Bruce Springsteen, "Maria's Bed." Not sure what this says, but I don't find myself playing the Devils and Dust album very often. I just picked up the Storytellers DVD, maybe that will inspire me.
3. The White Stripes, "I'm Lonely (But I Ain't That Lonely Yet)." I listen to them, I like what I hear, but that's the extent of my White Stripes love, or lack of same.
4. The Box Tops, "Cry Like a Baby." This was Alex Chilton's greatest band.
5. Dreamfield, "Babble." The Thompson Twins move to New Zealand, give themselves a new name, and offer this song that comes in under two minutes, so how bad can it be?
6. H.P. Lovecraft, "Spin Spin Spin." Not sure I'd call them a forgotten classic band, but they sounded like no one else, and you know how nostalgic I get for 60s psychedelia.
7. Dinah Washington, "Double Dealing Daddy." Starts out with someone snoring.
8. Bush, "Machinehead." I like the sound of some of Bush's songs, but I never know what the heck they are about, and I didn't even know the name of this one ... I think of it as the "Breathe In Breathe Out" song.
9. 50 Cent, "In Da Club." "It's your birth-day."
10. Paul Simon, "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover." From 50 Cent to 50 Ways, an interesting way to finish the ten.
