1: Panic Room – I Am A Cat ~ ?
I don’t trust cats; they always look far too inscrutable, and are clearly up to something. I’m constantly on the look-out for insights into the thinking of our future overlords, and while this isn’t quite up there with Peggy Lee’s ‘Siamese Cat Song’, it’s pretty close.
2: Cabaret Voltaire – Why Kill Time (When You Can Kill Yourself) ~ ?
Recently I keep on having this jolly little ditty popping up in my head when I least expect it. Fortunately it is rather good.
3: Lee Hazlewood – Vem Kan Segla ~ ?
Probably the oddest track from his decidedly odd “Cowboy In Sweden” album. Treads a fine line between mawkish and comedic… and somehow ends up gorgeous.
4: The Deathray Davies – Jack Never Crashes ~ ?
How about an Earworm about an Earworm? The Davies have one and it’s loads of fun.
5: Acid Witch – Metal Movie Marijuana Ma ~ ?
But many notches above your garden variety. Ace guitarwork and OTT “schlock” lyrics give rise to the suspicion that they may not have been stoned at the time after all.
6: Black Francis with Joey Santiago – The Cover Of The Rolling Stone ~ ?
This is a much darker, more disturbing take on the song than the mawkish Dr Hook version, and it comes from the Shel Silverstein tribute album because, yes, Shel wrote the song.
