I will forever associate this song with a few days I spent sick as a dog in a little house in the mountain town of my Italian relatives. On my cousins’ boom box I was able to pick up some station that played a loop of a the same dozen songs, including this, PiL’s “Poptones,” and the New York Dolls’ “Personality Crisis.” Not a bad soundtrack to my fever dreams. I even taped those dozen songs to bring home with me. That loop inspired what I feel was one of the first really good songs I ever wrote. I wrote the lyrics in that little bedroom and actually remembered enough of the tune to figure out the chords when I got back home.

Have you ever experienced an especially memorable loop of songs?

  1. An RTH cliffhanger here. I can’t play the video (“An error occurred. Please try later”). And there’s no title given. Is this like a Name That Tune thread where we don’t get the audio even but have to guess from the clues given in the narrative?
