Side One Track One

26 Jun

“We’re messing around at work, the three of us, getting ready to go home and rubbishing each other’s five best side one track ones of all time (mine: ‘Janine Jones’, the Clash, from The Clash; ‘Thunder Road’, Bruce Springsteen, from Born to Run; ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’, Nirvana, from Nevermind; ’Let’s Get It On’, Marvin Gaye, from Let’s Get It On; Return of the Grievous Angel’, Graham Parsons, from Grievous Angel. Barry: Couldn’t you make it any more obvious than that? What about the Beatles? What about the Rolling Stones? What about the fucking…fucking…Beethoven? Track one side one of the Fifth Symphony? You shouldn’t be allowed to run a record shop.’”
