So many to choose from ‘Ooky, but, personally (if pushed) it’d have to be these:
The sound of doom at your door
His trademark throb in excelsis on this Record Mirror remix, thumpin, jumpin and pumpin’
As I can’t link Prince then I’ll just have to suggest:
‘Head’ (off Dirty Mind), the sound of smut
Duff McKagan – pulsating, the first 10 seconds set the tone and hold it all together
Tony James‘s skewed ‘I feel love’ lift still sounds apocalyptic, (arguably) the first and best post-modern band. They foresaw, we witness.
Adam Clayton – pre-Achtung Bono riposte to Lennon’s ‘God’
Arnold Paseiro – speaks for itself
Written by Barry Andrews with the ‘bass’ weapon played by Colin Moulding
