- 1. "Gloria" by Them: "Because it has only three chords, and because I once sang it onstage with Bruce Springsteen, and he let ME sing lead."
- 2. "Maybellene" by Chuck Berry: "Nobody gets you into a story like Chuck Berry. The song opens with two fabulous lines: 'As I was motivatin’ over the hill, I saw Maybellene in a Coupe de Ville.' You just KNOW something’s gonna happen."
- 3. "Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison: "I love everything about this song, but I especially love the line 'Behind the stadium with you.'"
- 6. "Keep Me in Your Heart" by Warren Zevon: "If this song doesn’t break your heart, you don’t have one."
- 7. "Hound Dog" by Big Mama Thornton: "This is the way the song is supposed to sound."
- 8. "Tupperware Blues" by Dave Barry: "I don’t think this song is actually available on iTunes, but it should be, as it is to my knowledge the only blues song ever written about Tupperware."

Where The H--l Is Louie Louie?!
I'm not trolling, it's just that two or three of the funniest pieces that Dave has ever written were about how this was the best song ever. Having said that, this is a great (and somewhat surprising) set of tunes he has picked out. It's also nice to finally hear 'Tupperware Blues'.G.P.
