    21: Iron Butterfly

    Please god this isn't gonna turn into Pinno's "fun" Xmas quiz. That went on until March. And I didn't sleep properly until June.

    Don't blame me for your insomnia. I got 21. So boo. Metal Moth ?!
    Sorry. Not counting. Sleep now.

    Miserable, humourless basket. Hope you have nightmares.
    I always have nightmares.

    yep, patti smith's gloria is by far the best

    though the lyrics are so different i think it's fair to name another best using the original lyrics

    eddie and the hot rods did the best gloria with original lyrics for their 1976 'live at the marquee' ep (with 96 tears, get out of denver, and satisfaction), it was also on the teenage depression album

    i just dug out the ep, now over 40 years old ffs, this is why vinyl is best, and i still vividly remember that...

    the a side says "play real loud", and the b side says "play even louder"

    a little known fact is that this ep was subsequently performed live as part of the cut's set, right down to repeating barrie masters' "can't have chairs in the audience" chit chat before gloria, the cut subsequently evolved into spandau ballet

    if you lack the vinyl, someone has stuck it on youtube, gloria starts at about 7:10...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF_E4R-Lgos

    ...bear in mind that gloria was on the b side, so it is essential to play even louder

    I saw Eddie and the Hotrods 2 years ago in Whitby supporting Big Country. They were pretty good to say that the lead singer looked liked he'd been on stimulants for the last 40 years.

    the rules are one point per correct song, one point per correct band, you got the correct band for two, and the correct song for one, that's three points

    also, do not question the wisdom of the scoring cat
