- Aretha Franklin*, “Save Me”
- Goldfrapp, “Oh La La”
- Peaches*, “Fuck the Pain Away”
- Jill Sobule, “Tender Love”
They’re even better when heard in context. But a good song is a good song, no? Enjoy.
*NOTE: I believe “Fuck the Pain Away” is being covered by another artist, but I'm not sure who yet. And, on second listen, ditto for “Save Me.”
*NOTE II: Wow, I was so wrong. The song I thought was a Peaches cover was really nothing of the sort. It was The Cliks original “Complicated.” My bad, my apologies. All these songs about fucking the pain away, a gal can get confused.
