Music For Your Monday

With a generous hat-tip to Dr. Music (thanks for the email, Scott!), I thought it would be fun to highlight a far more rare breed than the one-hit wonder - the two-hit wonder. The first one is difficult to call such, because this was the first musical vehicle for a very young prodigy named Stevie Winwood, but, technically, the Spencer Davis Group did have only two chart hits. Here's one of them, "I'm a Man".

Extreme was one of the last hard-rock bands at the end of the whole hair-band phenomenon. Their big album, Pornograffiti, was a pretty rocking affair, and in the midst were two songs, "More Than Words" and "Hole Hearted" that were different. Here's the second one:

One of my dirty little secrets is that I really liked Vertical Horizon. Not a whole lot of interesting, ideas, perhaps, but I liked them anyway. This song, "You're a God", has always intrigued me. I like sarcasm, especially when it pricks the overinflated ego of those who think a bit too much of themselves. A nice, "Go Cheney Yourself" song, if you know what I mean.

For the record, I couldn't bring myself to listen to, let along post, Corey Hart.
