This morning I heard a story on NPR in which a scientist asserted that listening to music that you like can reduce pain. As if we needed a doctor to tell us something so obvious. For many years few albums have reduced pain—whether physical or mental—like Crazy Rhythms, the brilliant 1980 debut album by Hoboken's the Feelies. I'm not going to bother explaining how the group transplanted the strum-driven sound of the Velvet Underground into a wildly propulsive, hypnotic sound all its own. Instead, I'm just going to share one of the album's many highlights, "Loveless Love," below. May our pain all subside.
