(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction: The Rolling Stones

I found WXPN, Public Radio from the University of Pennsylvania, and its list of 885 greatest rock songs as voted by its listeners. The first was Born to Run but Mr. Springsteen takes umbrage with blog postings so I skipped him and went to number 2.

    1.Springsteen and 2.Satisfaction? I would change the radio station 😉
    Best rock song ever: King Crimson – 21st Century Schizoid Man !
    Best Dylan so far: Blind Willie McTell (acoustic version)

      Birgit,
      I was amazed at the choices as it is a university station. I figured they’d be more recent releases as choices.

    Satisfaction was the anthem of all high school boys and college men in the early 60s. In those days ‘good girls’ didn’t until the late 60s. The late 60s was the era of the pill, communes, recreational drugs and peace 🙂

    Technically WXPN is university-owned, but it isn’t UPenn’s student-run station, which is WQHS. XPN is one of the better-known folk-friendly stations and home of World Cafe, which I think a number of other public radio stations air. And if you happen to think of it next Christmas, one of their dj’s does a 24-hour all-holiday music show on Christmas Eve day. We’ve caught it a couple times driving home to CT for the holidays (once going so far as to stream it on an iPhone once it’d gotten too fuzzy to tune it in on the radio) and really enjoy it.

      sprite,
      I listen to World Cafe on my local folk station or my NPR I don’t remember which.

      I’ll have to write it down for Christmas. I’d forget what I have to do tomorrow without stickies!! Thanks!!
