Music On Only A Game

The Second Time Around by Shalamar (from Big Fun, Unidisc, 2006)

So you say you need more evidence of the genius of Don Cornelius? Look no further.

Barefootin’ by Robert Parker (from Barefootin’, Charly Records, 2006)

If the endless repetitions of a recent television ad for deck stain still has you wanting more of this tedious classic, just hit endless loop on your RealPlayer and zombie out.


1000 Little Insults by The Fabulous Johnny Zee (from Better Late Than Never, CD Baby, 2007)

How does he get all 1000 into a 3 minute song?!?!?!?


Dot Dash by Wire (from On Returning [1977-1979], Restless, 1989)

Now we’re talking! This classic 1978 single is everything that’s good about Wire: no cliche, streamlined arrangements, songs that are simple and yet somehow ingenious. It’s all there. And this still isn’t their best song.
