See if you can grab the Rolling Stones' "Slave". It's from their Tattoo You album. Play it LOUD, as you should play all music.

Todd Rundgren's "Boat on the Charles" is another favorite.

Elton John's "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" from his Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy album is another. By coincidence, I had just broken up with my girlfriend when I bought this album. Put it on the 'table and the song played. So every time I hear the song I remember how the weight of tha naggi...never mind, had been lifted from me.

If you can, get the Who's "Quadrophenia" album. Can't listen to individual songs, must play the entire album and consider your own dysfunctional life.

"The Naked Eye" is a very powerful song by the Who from their "Odds and Sods" album.

George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass" album is another must have.

"Forever Now" by the Psychedelic Furs from the same album.

"Dark Things" by Echo and the Bunnymen

"Too Drunk to ****" by Dead Kennedys.

"Greek Town's in Flames" by the Starkweathers off the Faye records label. the 45 came with a pack of matches.

April March's "Voodoo Doll", "Chick Habit", "Parachute" are some funny songs.

Anyway, if you like classic rock, but are sick of all the same old crap, listen to Alice Coopers night time broadcast. He plays lesser known songs that sound good, and his show should give you lots of ideas for stuff to download. If they don't play him in your area, I'm sure you can listen online.

The Temptations had a couple really cool songs: Firefly and Memories (kinda melancholy, but you don't hear them everyday).

See if you can find an indie album called "Shaftman" funny, raunchy, funny
