Alphabet Soup: The Letter Q

At first, the only songs that popped into my head for this letter were bad ones like “Que Sera Sera” or “Quit Playing Games With My Heart.”

Poking around a bit more, the only song I seemed to have starting with Q was “Quicksand” by Nigel Pulsford, the guitarist from Bush. The song’s not really that good — he can’t really sing, and the guitar’s not even that good for a guy who normally does pretty well. This is what happens when lead singers refuse to sing other band members songs — they feel the need to go out and make crappy solo albums.

If I wanted to cheat a little, I could always use “A Quick Peep” by Oasis, which is an instrumental that’s a good little British blues piece with hand claps. It’s only 1:17 long, but it’s way better than “Swamp Song” or even “Fuckin’ in the Bushes,” their other instrumentals. I’d sort of forgotten about it because I don’t put Heathen Chemistry on as often as some of the others.

Remind me or enlighten me with anything good that could go here instead.
