5 Songs I Can’t Stop Listening Too

by Armin St. Cloud

  1. “Fire Woman” – The Cult

It’s hard to believe that it’s been thirty years since The Cult released the ‘Sonic Temple’ album. Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy have a phenomenal musical partnership that’s still working today and this song really shows it off.

 

  1. “See You Tonight” (MTV Unplugged) – KISS

Despite The Beatles being a common thread of influence among all original members of KISS, you don’t often hear the influence. This song is a rare exception to that, thoroughly Beatle-esque and a superb song to hear. 

 

  1. “Nerve” – Brandon Prinzing & The Old Revival

I don’t make it a habit of listening to ‘newer’ artists. But when it comes to this song, it’s hard to deny that it has one of the most original and frankly, very well delivered choruses of any song in the past decade.

 

  1. “Look Away” – Ozark Mountain Daredevils

Ozark Mountain Daredevils are a criminally underrated band that never get the recognition they deserve. Most people will think of ‘Jackie Blue’ or ‘If You Wanna Get to Heaven’ and immediately assume that’s where the good songs end. A deeper dive into the OMD catalogue brings you on a sonic journey that is not soon to be forgotten. 

 

  1. “Peg” – Steely Dan

Admittedly I really only listen to this song to hear the guitar solo. But even beyond that- it’s very easy to come away from listening to this song with the saxophone fills echoing in your head.
