    So the newfangled music apps will show your most listened to songs and albums of the year. I kinda felt like I spent this year riding around in my van listening to 80's jams, and this morning it was confirmed by my most listed to song of the year:



    What's your #1 song of the 2020?

    I pretty much only listen in the car and I've been listening to a lot of 80s hip hop. I think my number one song would probably be this one...

    So I went from a thrash metal phase into a 60's garage rock phase, mostly from a compilation album from the early 70's called nuggets. Then there were albums after, Nuggets 2, (British and American versions I guess?) and Pebbles which is a series of 60's British garage rock.
    I always loved the old stuff, but besides the usual "Louie Louie" or Dick Dale, Link Wray stuff(and of course ? and The Mysterians, 96 Tears, love that tune) I didn't know much else. There are a lot of familiar bands and tunes on these albums, some that are more weird or psychedelic than garage, but so many I had never heard of that are pure gold, awesome tunes, from bands with goofy names like the Sparkles or Kenny And The Kasuals.
    Tunes that pre date the MC5 or Stooges, and just as heavy.

    In my top five records of all time. It's been on heavy rotation for me for decades. Richard Hell is a genious, and his band is TIGHT. Robert Quine (RIP) was an amazing guitar player.

    There's a lot of good Aussie garage bands from that era, too... like the Missing Links

    Yeah, that's pretty rockin LB. Awesome tune.
    I could just imagine being a teen when these first came out, getting it on a 45 and putting it on the turntable for the first time.
    Then grabbing my leashless 11 ft balsaboard to slide uncrowded waves.
    Where's my time machine.

    I remember taping this song off the radio around 1982 when I was maybe 9 or 10 and listening to it over and over again. Awesome magazine, great movie and soundtrack.
