Glamour, swagger, and unbridled love have always had their place in rock ‘n’ roll, and sometimes these qualities come together to bring about particularly heartfelt, infectious stuff—the kind of record you’ll throw on the turntable (or hi-fi, 8-track, etc.) when you wanna feel good fast. Whether raunchy and crunchy or impassioned and sweet, there’s nothing like a fine Queen or Cheap Trick tune to lift the mood and remember that love does, indeed, prevail. For your pleasure, we pored through the Concert Vault for songs that, while not always sexy, have got that swagger or bombast that makes a song truly special. The playlist draws from bands both contemporary (Spoon, Of Montreal) and classic (Faces, Thin Lizzy, etc.), touching on punk, indie-pop, bubblegum, and classic glam along the way. Hope you dig it!
