To kick things off I am heading back 34 years for my first nomination, Total Control by The Motels..
I just adore this song for the way it never ever goes over the top, but chugs along in a menacing Twin Peaks fashion. It’s all about the baseline, the vocal and a whole lot of space. It reached 109 in the US and didn’t chart in the UK.
As with this choice, for most of my nominations the videos are likely to be blurry, with retro VHS static or in a few cases non-existent, but that goes hand in hand with them being overlooked. Abandon all hope of HD 1080p over the next ten days.
Meanwhile Andy and Roy have posted their nominations for today in the comments below………
