    Great pick!

    The first time I ever heard this song was on a high school band-member's car 8-track player blasted to ear-bleed levels. It sounded great!

    I grew up outside the range of good (AM in those days) reception. When my parents would go shopping in the big town, I would stay in the car to listen to the car radio because the reception was better there. Whenever the Stones Brown Sugar came on I would turn up the volume to just above the distortion point because I loved the 'heavier' sound it produced and thought it emulated a live sound more. Whenever I hear it now (and turn it up on the car radio) I always anticipate a few chords which particularly distorted and broke up, and am somwhat disappointed that the sound remains 'clean'.

    Hold On Loosely, by 38 Special. Just something about the stop'n'go quality of the song and the crunching drive of the guitars.

    Good Stuff, by The B52s. The bass line is killer when compressed for FM radio.

    In my youth, just about anything by The Beach Boys.
