The sequel to Chick Name Jams featuring The Smiths, Curtis Mayfield, T-Rex, White Stripes, Chet Baker, Jethro Tull, Jerry Lee Lewis, Rod Stewart and many more!
A few weeks ago we bought you 60 tracks that featured girl’s names, a rich theme running through popular music. We thought it was a very cool playlist but we also thought that in the interests of balance and fairness (and because it also sounded like a cool idea) that we would construct a male equivalent.
Initially we thought it might be a slightly harder playlist to build but when we started digging around we realised there were so many that, as with Chick Name Jams, we were going to have to leave some obvious ones out. So no Jumping Jack Flash, Hey Jude, It’s A Shame About Ray, or any one of a number of songs with the name ‘Johnny’ in the title (there’s quite a lot of them, we’ve included two…). Anyway, what we’ve ended up with is, as usual, a mix of the famous and the not-so-famous, an eclectic array of styles, and songs from various eras. Most of all what we think we’ve created is a playlist full of killer tracks. We hope you agree and enjoy!
