The Ventures "Caravan" :
Being Canadian, April Wine's song Wanna Rock. Short and full of energy.
Anything with Vinnie Colaiuta. Check out below and get Tal Wlikenfeld on Bass as a delightful extra(Solo, third song). (The keyboard guy is stellar too. Sheesh.) (That's Jimmy Page in the audience.)
Frankenstein and Free Ride both by The Edgar Winter Group. Featuring Chuck Ruff(RIP)on drums and Edgar Winter on percussion.
Samantha Fish's drummer is terrific.
There will always be a place in my heart for these girls. I read how they were more or less obliged to form a band for family reasons, and tried their best.
I once did a fill-in guitar gig in a classic rock band. The drummer had his kit set up earlier in the day, but was nowhere to be found at the start time.
After asking "is there a drummer in the house?" we got a volunteer for the first song. Then the regular drummer arrived and played the set.
The band went on break after an hour, but he stayed behind the kit and announced "Rush - Power Windows: side 2" and played the drum parts to that album side while we listened.
I guess he liked the drums on that record.
For me, it would be something by Stewart Copeland, Keith Moon, or Bernard Purdie
I've thought of another, sort of...
I have to say, it's more about the basslines on most Jam songs for me, but Rick Buckler was a massively underrated drummer... not that I'm any expert.
It always baffles me how/why Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler seemed to fade in to obscurity after The Jamsplit.
John Cage's "4'33", if only for the room ambience.
It's not the greatest drum track in the world, but still, "everybody wants some" has a wonderful sultry mayhem to it.
It's the 80s version of a 60s Go Go dancer beat.
