    In my mind, anyway.



    Do you have groups of songs that you tend to "clump"?

    When we play gigs, we mix “Keep Yer Hands To Yourself” with “It’s Only Rock & Roll”...we do the first two verses of “KYHTY”, then a couple of verses/choruses of “IOR&R” (with the audience singing along) and then the third verse of “KYHTY”...

    ...but I’ll admit I stole that idea from the Georgia Satellites themselves (who I saw in 1988; my first concert)

    We also mix three songs I wrote that have similar rhythms...but you haven’t heard them, so...

    I agree heartily with the first two.
    Smart pop (IMO) is my guilty pleasure.
    Era wise, you are correct on all counts, sir!

    Just on my phone at the moment so will have to listen later. I'll need refreshing on the other two but Rock On is one of the great recordings of all time. I might be wrong but I think it's produced by Mike Batt ( later of The Wombles and Katie Melua fame). To me there's a dub reggae influence but Mike would have had to be into dub very early for that to be true. Or maybe all those cool reggae producers were listening to the man who went on to make records about puppets picking up litter.*


    * I don't know how culturally specific this is, if The Wombles ever made it outside the UK.

    The films he starred in are worth a watch ( from what I remember) - That’ll be the Day ( also featuring Ringo Starr) and Stardust. And his other early hits like Gonna Make You a Star. But he did a lot of musicals and acted in soaps so not much that was cool. Quite a cool geezer in himself, very laid back rockstar type.

    I heard just a blurb of Eight Miles High today and thought it was September Girls. So maybe those two.




    Probably it's the vocals.

    Not to hijack blowtorch's thread, but I saw Stardust at a drive-in in the seventies.....caught it on cable sometime in the eighties, and have since tried to find it on DVD.....apparently not available. Have never seen That'll Be The Day. Stardust is a continuation of T'll B T D......Adam Faith was in Stardust, as well as Keith Moon and Dave Edmunds.

    I always like to hear Son of a Preacher Man alongside Ode to Billy Joe

    Saw one of my favourite bands years ago slot Ode to Billy Joe in the middle of this

    It was perfect..
