Back for his No Sleep 'til Sudbury sophomore turn from the UK is my pal Joel McIver, one of my favourite writers and one hell of a good man. Joel proposed an idea for his second episode which I instantly liked - songs he believes will still be popular 100 years from now.
Some of these song selections perplexed me when I first saw Joel's list, but the man's rationale stands up and it makes for some great discussion. We talk about the childish filth found in some Beatles lyrics (!), what it means to be a 'git', the curious popularity of the Foo Fighters, and the perceived future of heavy metal and popular music in general. Enjoy!
The Beatles - Back in the USSR
Black Sabbath - War Pigs
David Bowie - Changes
Fairport Convention - Come All Ye
Foo Fighters - Times Like These
Ice T - New Jack Hustler
Elvis Presley - That's All Right Mama
