Chuck out your Kings of Leon collection and put this 10-minute monster on loop.32 Pulp Underwear Different Class, 1995 Modern songs portraying sex as threatening and murky are rare, and one this accessible is unique.Keyboard player Rick Wright here contributed by far the best song to Floyd’s most underrated album. Probably the most quintessentially REM-ish song the band ever wrote.Lovely, swirly brass; lashings of trippy English pastoral; ace key and tempo changes.

Then Young’s winsome, sweet, quavery little-boy-lost voice comes to the rescue ‘Country girl I think you’re purrtyy…’ 16 The Streets Wouldn’t Have it Any Other Way A Grand Don’t Come for Free, 2004 Should he stay in with his girlfriend or go out?
