After a flat Wolves' loss to Utah tonight and then a game less than 24 hours from now against Denver, whom we've already played twice since these previews began, I don't know how much musical energy we have. So let's keep it simple: a riff on our opponent's name, Nuggets (which is neither an animal nor an ethnic group, so I know that at the very least VJ and I do not approve).
Anyone know this LP, which was #196 in Rolling Stone's 2003 list of the 500 greatest albums?
Released in 1972, it was an influential compilation of garage rock songs from 1964-68. Some of them were hits, but most were not. So, if you care to, please post one song that you have always felt should have been a huge smash, something that you love and feel had commercial potential, but for whatever reason never caught fire.
Kind of the opposite to the jealousy you might feel when your indie fave hits the big time and every Tom, Dick and Khloe claims them as "theirs" when you were there for all the losing seasons, bad drafts, unlucky injuries -- oops, sorry, my mind strayed there for a moment. But you get the drift.
Here is my offering, from 1982, featuring a propulsive beat, great guitar and keyboard riffs, and inscrutable lyrics sung with Scottish attitude from teenager Roddy Frame.
What's your song? Lay it on me, brother.
