#ThrowbackThursday (10/2/13)

It’s Thursday, so you know what means…it’s time to share some #ThrowbackThursday picks from Murfie! Is there anything you would add to this list? Let us know in the comments, or send us a tweet @murfiemusic with the hashtag #ThrowbackThursday!

Puss/Oh, The Guilt
Jesus Lizard/Nirvana
Jeff: “In honor of the 20th anniversary of In Utero, this Nirvana/Jesus Lizard split filled the lonely gap between proper albums. ‘Puss’ is maybe the best Jesus Lizard song, likely the only recorded use of a cigarette lighter as percussion instrument on ‘Oh, the Guilt’. What can I even say about that cover?”

Killer on the Rampage
Eddy Grant
Tiffany: “For whatever reason, I loved the song ‘Electric Avenue’ when I was 8. I don’t like reggae now, so I have no idea why. But, I insisted that my mom buy me what became my first vinyl album.”

The Best of Blondie
Blondie
Noah: “At age 6 during long car rides, I used to sing along to ‘Call Me’ and ‘One Way or Another’ and pretend to be Debbie Harry. This album was probably more of a formative life influence than I give it credit for.”

1984
Van Halen
Jason: “Trolling the elementary school playground, Van Halen’s 1984 distortedly blasted out of a one-speaker Panasonic cassette boombox provided the perfect counterpoint to Quiet Riot’s Metal Health.”

Even Now
Barry Manilow
Matt: “Barry can belt it out with the best of ’em—that much was apparent, even on my mom’s eight track. ‘Copacabana’ is still a terrific dance track, whether off the original album or as part of the many remixes.”

Kayla: “This album was amazing to 13-year-old me, and is still amazing today. Tyson Ritter’s songs are mostly about heartbreak (but I love you, Tyson!). Definitely listen to ‘The Last Song’, it’s so rockin’.”
Leah: “This album is just so sing-along-worthy: from the ultra-cathartic ‘Say It Ain’t So’ to the melancholy ‘The World Has Turned and Left Me Here’ and the rollicking power chords of ‘My Name is Jonas,’ Weezer’s ‘blue album’ is an insanely catchy and fun throwback.”
