Kind of a rough one--voted JCRiley, also enjoyed the Ventures, Otis, Strangers, Wild Cherries, Fruit Gum & Easybeats.

Agreed on the Crowes, but do you like the Mae version or not? I do--she looks pretty awesome in it!

The staccato organ and slow trumpet kill me.


I thought the production was very interesting on this too--I bet Yoko Kanno was listening to this for some of her soundtrack work.

This has never been a huge favorite of mine, but I think that's just a personal hangup; it reminds me too much of the noxiously catty country parenting style I saw a lot of growing up in Missouri. A lot of people I knew had parents like this, and they always annoyed me.




? But those parents get served!

The Canned Heat was very interesting, but the flute ruined it for me.

Dude, I like the Mae version like Catholic priests love young boys.
