Another painfully obvious choice. There are a few curveballs later in the list, trust me.
You have to remember that rock music pretty much sounded like this
so the Chilis genuinely were remarkable when they came along.
Although Taste The Pain
was the first song I heard by them, Give It Away was, I felt, the moment when it all came together. There was always something slightly weird about them, which really worked. Even the early singles of their later Dad-Rock phase worked pretty well, though it’s been a long while since they did anything good. This, though, reminds me just how good they really were.
