"What Love?" from Mingus' Antibes album.



Yes, it was recorded live, but I never set that as a prohibitive condition.

Also Sprach Zarathustra By Deodato

Wah peddle guitar, funky organ and soaring strings. In a live setting it would evoke all the style and excess of the 70's.

Does this have to be something that is impossible to see live? If not, I choose Bachelorette by Bjork.

Either "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley, that one about Robots by the Lips and anything by Cat Power.

Lucky me.

Past: A Day in the Life, Beatles

Present: Paper Birds, The Slip (oh, wait ...)

Future: Today's the Day, Apollo Sunshine

How about Prince and the Revolution c. 1986 performing "It's Gonna Be a Beautiful Night"? Or maybe the Beatles playing "Twist and Shout" in Hamburg c. 1961. Or anything by Kenny G.

I'll go with "Fearless" by Pink Floyd, followed by "Us and Them." I know they're on two different albums, but let's say it's, oh ... 1977

And classic lineup only.

"Sex Machine" by the Godfather, any time between 1968 and 1975.

"Jizzlobber" by Faith No More.

"Like a Rolling Stone"

Dylan at the Royal Albert Hall in '66 when they boo him and that pretentious young folkie yells "Judas" at him for going electric. Then he turns to the band and says "Play it f---ing louder." Then they do "Rolling Stone."

"Diaraby" by Ali Farka Toure

Anything really though... regret not having a chance to see the great guitarist play live. RIP

"Old Rockin' Chair" a Louis Armstrong duet with Jack Teargarden. I don't know (nor do I need to) how or why it does it, but the song slays me, as does Saint Louis (Armstrong, that is).
