96 Tears
by ? & the Mysterians
(36 plays) | (0 fans)

It only took one song, the organ-driven number one smash "96 Tears," to make ? & the Mysterians into garage rock legends. Eccentric frontman Question Mark (actually spelled "?," once he had his name legally changed) cultivated an aura of mystery by never appearing in public without a pair of wraparound sunglasses; he frequently claimed he had been born on Mars and lived among the dinosaurs in a past life, and that voices from the future had revealed he would be performing "96 Tears" in the year 10,000. https://bit.ly/35GP402

Da Funk
by Daft Punk
(91 plays) | (0 fans)

Daft Punk are a French electronic music duo formed in Paris in 1993 by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter. The music video for this song is quite interesting. Although the video has drawn several interpretations, Thomas Bangalter has stated: "There's no story. It is just a man-dog walking with a ghetto-blaster in New York. The rest is not meant to say anything. People are trying to explain it: Is it about human tolerance? Integration? Urbanism? There's really no message. There will be a sequel someday" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmi60Bd4jSs
