If there’s one song I really think has all the best qualities of early 80s hard rock, it’s this one. I don’t have a lot more to say about it, I feel it speaks best for itself.
In 1992 I visited my relatives in Wuppertal, Germany. On that trip I bought my very first portable CD player, and the first CD I bought and listened to was Genesis’ album We Can’t Dance. Of all the great tracks on that album, Driving the Last Spike was my favorite since the first time I heard it. Since then, I’ve discovered a lot of older Genesis albums, but none of them bring back as many memories and as much nostalgia as We Can’t Dance.
This week has been crunch time at work, meaning I’ve listened to a lot of high energy electronic music. When I’m looking for something a little extra fun my go to artist at the moment is Savant. This track has a nice break in the middle which makes it extra effective.
Back at work for the first time in a couple of weeks, and I felt the need for something upbeat and high energy. I have always liked this song.
I tried to think of a great song to start of this whole project with, and it took me some time to arrive where I did. I wanted something that I really like, but not just anything. So I decided on what I consider to be one of the best songs from one of the greatest bands of the 90s.
