A few tracks and bands that capture a spirit or memory. If you disagree/take umbrage with my choices, pah!

The Saw Doctors. Saw them at Leamington Spa last month, they're in Cheltenham in November, Awesome!
The Hamsters. Saw them in Cheltenham two weeks ago, going to see them in Poole in October:
U2 "Spanish Eyes". I loved this song from the first time I heard it. Makes me want to go to the south western States:
Big Country, "Chance". First gig I ever went to was Big Country at Poole. Blew me away:
Pink Floyd, "Wish You Were Here". What's to say?
Johnny Cash, "Hurt". The Man in Black kicks rear end:
Kwoon, "I lived on the Moon". A fantastic video for a fantastic song. Do yourself a favour and get their two albums, they're brilliant:
Ultimate late 80s Poodle rock? Twisted Sister, "We're not gonna take it". Electric Twanger, anyone?:
Lynryd Skynryd, "Freebird". Anything I can type seems trite:
Beirut, "Nantes". Great video!
King, "Whole Lotta Rosie". Elvis does AC/DC, what's not to like?
Nirvana, "Smells like Teen Spirit". Nearly 20 years old? Nothing's come close to the impact this album caused:
