Music comes in lots of flavors, most of which I’d hate to have to live without, but the ones closest to my heart involve well-played electric guitars, female voices, and raw rock energy. The Breeders’ Cannonball has all three ingredients.
Unlike many of the daysongs, this one has no personal back-story at all; Until I started writing this I had no idea who The Breeders are/were, I just liked this tune a whole lot when it came on the twentieth-century radio, and still do. Hm, it turns out they have roots in the Pixies and Throwing Muses and have been on-and-off over the years but are apparently still on.
Anyhow, it’s got a good tune and a nice guitar riff, lots of energy, I’d like to dance to it sometime.
