Eddie & the Hot Rods - Get Across To You (c.1976)
History records Eddie & the Hot Rods as the missing link between pub rock and punk, and their debut album, released at the tail end of 1976, proves that every word is true. Young, loud, snotty and incredibly fast, the riffs and rhythms are fuel-injected R&B, but the lyrics are teenaged disaffection with a forest on its shoulders. - allmusic.com

The Black Angels - Telephone (c. 2010)
…like a lost tune from The Easybeats
PLACE: Los Angeles International Airport, California
SONG: THE BLACK ANGELS – ‘Telephone’
GIRL: Angela Trimbur
WHY: I had a pretty lonely holiday… I didn’t get to go home to see my fam this year & was really bummed, so I went to dance around people who got to do so on their way back from holiday vacay.
LYRIC I LOVE: “You watch me sit outside. You watch me wait and try.”
PURCHASE THE SONG: ‘Telephone’ by The Black Angels
Big Maybelle - Blues Early, Early (c. 1958)
Frank Sinatra - Tennessee Newsboy (The Newsboy Blues)
Next to the infamous duet Frank Sinatra recorded with Dagmar - “Mama Will Bark" - Frank has sometimes pointed to this song, "Tennessee Newsboy" as one of the examples of the inferior songs he had to sing under Mitch Miller’s supervision during Frank’s final years at Columbia. While "Mama Will Bark" is admittedly an extremely goofy song (click link to listen, it’s pretty awful) - this “Tennessee Newsboy” is actually an appealing affair that features an “upbeat” performance by Frank, some fine steel guitar by "Speedy" West, and a bright arrangement by Axel Stordahl. Yes, it’s commercial pop with some novelty value. Sure - it’s not “NIght And Day” - but, then, it isn’t supposed to be. - youtube
