new Viva show (#116) in the archive
NRBQ - That's Alright
Any band that shows love for the pre-Help! Beatles can only win points in my book, especially when brilliant changes such as that occurring at 1:36 are on offer.
Words and music by Joseph Spampinato. Recorded November, 1974 in beautiful Maynard, Massachusetts.

France Gall - Les Petits Ballons
A thousand thanks to Davy across the pond for helping me to acquire this precious mp3. Written by J.C. Vannier and Serge Gainsbourg. Direction d'orchestre: Jean-Claude Vannier. This one's for fans of chord changes (you know who you are).

Drip-Dry eyes - I Believe In You
Drip-Dry eyes is a Japanese musician and, not surprisingly, a huge Yukihiro Takahashi fan. Here's his myspace. As near as I can tell, this is a cover of an obscure Yukihiro b-side. I ripped the mp3 from a youtube. (Drip-Dry, please let me know if that's not cool...)
Bonus points for the detuned churchbell sound.
