Sweet Summer Trax

The Smiles – Cala Cola

This song is pretty alright!


The Cramps I Can’t Hardly Stand It

Lux Interior (who I assume got his name from a Buick catalog) gives a bitchin’ performance on this track. Beats the heck out of Charlie Feathers.


Edwyn Collins – I Never Met a Girl Like You Before



Sweet Ballads



Aerosmith – You See Me Crying

Some see Aerosmith as a cheezy band, and for the most part that’s what they have been since the 90s. But pre ‘Get a Grip’ Aerosmith was a pretty rockin’ band, and Stephen Tyler was a badass front man.


Rod Stewart – Oh No Not My Baby

A much covered classic. Rod the Bod does it best.


Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Promise

A real sweet tune from BRMC’s amazing tribute to Americana Howel.
