    Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust” is just brutal.
    Prince has some unique sounding drum grooves: “1999”, “U Got the Look (Long Look)”, “Hello” come to mind.

    Toto- Girl Goodbye. Jeff Porcaro could create a hell of a “rock pocket”.

    Right now probably something on this Placebo 1971-1974 compilation I've discovered yesterday, which is loaded with good ones!

    Hooverphonic - Inhaler...drop your first tab...now...then push "play":

    Weekend Players, side project of Groove Armada's Andy Cato. Chill and syncopation meets Steve Reich.
    Rachel Foster's vocal occasionally drifts into measures of 5/8 and 7/8, causing your rhythmic, nodding head to suddenly shift to the "wrong" beat. But the song stays in 6/4.
