Hansome Devil – The Smiths. Pure unashamed vanity, we can always delude ourselves briefly.
Hanging on the Telephone – Blondie. This has that energy that just gets you going.
Heart of Glass – Blondie. More, relaxed still great.
Hello I Love You – The Doors. Strange Days was the first album I ever bought, back when records ruled. This shinning example is another juke box classic. Incidentally I have Strange Days saved elsewhere on my phone.
Hey, Hey we're The Monkees – The Monkees. They were openly constructed, but still managed to be something more. I always considered the film Head far superior to Easy Rider.
Hold on Tight – ELO. Wise words in dark times.
Hoochie Coochie Man – The King. What a concept, what a song.
How Sweet to be an Idiot – Neil Innes. Simply to be. But also it reminds me of a question from my City and Guilds electrician final exam.
Hush – Deep Purple. I like this song so much I used it in an answer phone message once.
I’m Not Your Steppin' Stone – The Monkees. It rocks, what more can I say.
It’s Turned Out Again – George Formby. This guy was the hendrix of his day, breaking taboos under the guise of seemingly innocent lyrics. Don’t forget this guy didn’t 'play sun city' before it was even made, and is cited as being influential of the Beatles. Which leads on to the next song, quite literally as it happens.
Voodoo Child – Jimi Hendrix. Not the album version, it’s the one used in the film Withnail and I. The wizard of the guitar is here.
