Grace Jones - 'Pull Up To The Bumper' on Later (HQ)

I swear to G-d, I'm not a pervert. (First Inner Circle's "Sweat," now this...) But I love this song.

"Listening to music" is now as much a visual experience as aural, but that was not true in 1981 when this record was released. So imagine for a moment, this cold, almost harsh-sounding female voice (the above live version is quite a bit softer), wrapped sinuously around that central guitar hook, above a marriage of driving beat and bass. Still sounds fresh, even with its underlying tail-end of disco.

John Lennon - Gimme Some Truth

John Lennon wasn't exactly extolled in 1970's Norfolk, Virginia. Only a handful of his songs made it to mainstream radio. This obviously wasn't one of them. I heard it the first time when I bought the record--it's on Imagine--and fell instantly in love. George Harrison plays lead guitar.

Yoko Ono - Every Man Has A Woman Who Loves Him

The highly underrated Yoko Ono. I feel the real reason people threw so much crap at her...besides she was a female intellectual, people found her intimidating, hey it's always easy to blame the broad for everything anyway...was simply a matter of timing.

In the 1960's and 70's, World War II was ever present...nothing, and I mean nothing, has ever been as funny to me as The Producers, which I saw on tv sometime in the early 70' was like...they're laughing about this thing? Ono was Japanese in a bad time to be Japanese.

Play this song; you'll be hooked.
