Because all the world loves a list…

…here’s Retrocrush’s 50 Coolest Song Parts. Song parts? Sure. You know, like the fast part of Ike and Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” (No. 23) or the harmonica solo in the Romantics’ “What I Like About You” (No. 46). I’ve a big quibble with their No. 1, but I expect everyone’s got their own opinion.

    C’mon, the weird sound underlying the Beatles’ “Come Together” deserves to be higher than just 31. I remember being seven years old and trying to imitate that one�glottally, with fricatives (and a fair amount of spray), which irritated the living shit out of my mother (who, the first time, thought I was choking on my own postnasal drip).

    I also didn’t see any of Donna Summer’s famous screaming orgasms in there. Berlin’s “Sex” at number 48 has one, but it ain’t jack compared to the extended-play version of “Love to Love You, Baby.”

    Phil Collins at number one? Nah, he’d be well behind the Beatles on my list.

    I think their No. 2 should be No. 1. While I’ve heard it enough times in my life that I never want to hear it again, Roger Daltrey’s YEAHHHHH in “Won’t Get Fooled Again” got overplayed for a reason.

    Although you know? I always liked “Baba O’Reilly” and “Goin’ Mobile” from that album a lot better.

    A better Hendrix snippet would have been the his into on Little Wing. Ah, the talent in those hands…

    #4 Brings back great memories for me. It was the late 70’s, sitting in the backseat of my brother’s Mustang, on our way to Huntington. He put in this 8-track (weren’t those the days…) and I had never heard anything like it. Bohemian Rhapsody blew me away and I spent the rest of my teen years in a Queen fog.

    At least I think it was an 8-track. Could’ve been a cassette. Anyway, can’t you just imagine little kids today trying to make sense of an 8-track? They’d probably be trying to figure out how to insert it into the computer.

    Phil Collins and Lionel Ritchie cannot be defined as cool. A very painful thought.

    I do not accept this as a valid list. There is no George Clinton.

    Got to have your sunglasses on to be cool.
