Manfred Mann’s Earth Band – Davy’s On the Road Again

Break A Leg Kid – World War Me
Let’s kick off this week with a frenetic new track from Chicago’s World War Me. Paced by breakneck guitar riffs and full bore rhythms, this one is more punk than pop.

The Pogues – Dirty Old Town
I just returned from a fantastic music filled vacation to Ireland, and figured I’d leverage that trip to dig into the vault for this week’s Throwback Thursday Song of the Week. Nope, I’ve talked enough about U2, this one is from Celtic punk rockers, The Pogues. But, there’s nothing punk rock about this selection.
