Chet Atkins "Walk, Don't Run" (http://youtu.be/zzd-mBHPP-Q ) JK--1958. 2 years before the Ventures. Both were covers of a 1955 original.
Paul McCartney & Wings "Junior's Farm" (http://youtu.be/_QYm837uCTE ) JK--Love the odd effect Paul applied to his voice on this gr8 rocker
Gotye "State Of The Art" (http://youtu.be/xWIKQMBBTtk ) JK--From his latest. Best use of auto-tune in any popsong.
1910 Fruitgum Co "Simon Says" (http://youtu.be/4OjTYTZ8-Tw ) JK--1968. I still love bubblegum. I even bought the record in my college years
The Carter Family "Can The Circle Be Unbroken" (http://youtu.be/qjHjm5sRqSA ) JK--1927. Love the plainness of their devotional delivery
Robert Johnson "Come On In My Kitchen" (http://youtu.be/LuSKX_gqHn4 ) JK--1936. Spare, raw fingering & vocal grip your attention.

The Ventures 'Walk Don't Run" (http://youtu.be/g-evJ0J08Jw ) JK--Let's face it. This remains the iconic surf-rock instrumental song.
Raybeats "Jack The Ripper" (http://youtu.be/xOwC6XAHIlQ ) JK--1983. An obvious forerunner of the Raveonettes. I saw them twice live. Kickass!
The Raveonettes "Attack Of The Ghost Riders" (http://youtu.be/1gQEvupSrRY ) JK--Ten years ago. First LP. Extraordinarily sharp propulsion.
The Raveonettes "Dead Sound" (http://youtu.be/n3MpNLmnfww ) JK--Their classic sound. From a few years ago. So sharp you tingle all over.
The Raveonettes "She Owns The Streets" (http://youtu.be/rHI12hKE-ig ) JK--Their latest. Stylistic departure. More lush-pop, less surf-rhythm
Rodriguez "Sugar Man" (http://youtu.be/pzfdYRldD68 ) JK--Recorded in early 70s by obscure Detroit artist who's been recently rediscovered
Dirty Projectors "Gun Has No Trigger" (http://youtu.be/o_qFaFl7JVc ) JK--Their l8st. Song has insinuating way o burrowing into your awareness

The reason I insert my initials "JK" into tweets is need for unambiguous visual delimiter between my comment and what I'm commenting on.
@EllieAsksWhy "JK" stands for (this is a tricky code, so bear with me) my initials.

"Data Scientists Figurd Out Wot Songs Youll Like in 24 Hrs" (http://onforb.es/O3QCCq ) JK--I just assume everyone shares my tastes--or should
The Turing test for a Twitter user should be, when you follow them, their response is anything other than robotic "Thanks for the follow!"

@clivel_98 Yes, I agree re the portable-across-web-clients imperative. Hence standards (HTML5, AJAX, REST, etc.). No argument there. @clivel_98 "Truly web-based" needs to reflect the fact that architectural definition of "web" is inherently browser/client-inclusive.

Morning inspiration: "Life's a piece o' shit, when ya think o' it." --Eric Idle
My morning routine of plowing through my inboxes & socials w/ brutal velocity, trying not 2 miss anything of substance--or interesting quirk
Curious if Romney will apologize to the British for doubting their ability to run a smooth, successful Olympics. Doubtful.
Boy, do PhDs get touchy when you even dare to suggest that the degree doesn't put them in an elite class all by themselves. Geezel pete.
Olympic first. Eric Idle sang word "shit," per actual lyric, in closing ceremony performance. "Life's a piece o' shit, when ya think of it."
Eric Idle singing "Always Look On The Bright Side of Life." Preferred him singing it crucified. But this'll do.
Spice Girls the real draw of closing ceremony for my 22 year old daughter.
London Olympics opening & closing ceremonies far more entertaining than Beijing's. My Chinese wife begs to differ.
Russell Brand singing "I Am The Walrus" with a bullhorn atop a psychedelic bus in Olympic closing ceremony. Perfect touch.

@ajbowles You listed 2 US cities that have "City" in their actual names.
Washington Nationals. Best in MLB. On track to win 100 games. Go Nats! Washingtonians in denial. No civic memory of winning baseball team.
Saturday morning. Me alone with papers, tea, & tablet. Bliss.
Reading & enjoying Nora Ephron's "I Feel Bad About My Neck." Had never read any of the late writer's work before. Fine, dry wit.
