I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier

We can't forget Larry Underwood's one and only hit song before Captain Trips set in - "Baby Can You Dig Your Man".

The Flamin' Groovies' "Slow Death" also makes my playlist.

I called the doctor
In the morning
I had a fever
It was a warning
She said "There's nothing I can prescribe
To keep your raunchy bag of bones alive"

I still have this one in my playlist, and for years:

Tobu: Infectious


That coughing in this electronic piece is so appropriate..

You might add another song from "London Calling", "Four Horsemen".

And one by Richard Thompson:

Keep Your Distance

Alone Again, Naturally seems like an obvious choice.

It is the same as my usual list. When I am in the mood for a song I look up old music videos like Taylor Daynes "Tell It to my Heart" or goofy (but brilliant) ones like songs by Lonely Island.

Watch that Taylor Daynes music video at least once a week, please.

How have we forgotten "Germs", by Weird Al Yankovic? By now, I think he has a song relevant to just about anything.

Panic In The World - Be Bop Deluxe

We'll find an island, we'll burn the maps,
We'll lock our hearts and throw the keys into the sea,
Let's be survivors, they'll never find us
It's all behind us, I know a place they've never been...
