“Reign On” by The Brian Jonestown Massacre

I have been writing this column for a while now, and it’s come as kind of surprise to me how many “favorite” songs I have. They keep coming to me week after week, seemingly with no end in sight.

I love a long song.

Canadian hardcore punk band (but oh so much more than that) Fucked Up’s “Year of the Tiger” is a long song. And a stellar one at that.

“Seventeen Years” by Ratatat

“I don’t write my stuff anymore I just kick it from my head you know what I’m sayin?”

The fusion of rock music, dance music, and hip-hop has been pretty prevalent over the last 30 years, producing a whole plethora of instant classics…and some steaming piles of manure that are best forgotten. But when it’s good, it can be damn near great.
