Twenty-five tunes you've never heard because you were not listening.: #10 Patti Smith -- Dancing Barefoot

I bet ya haven't heard this one! Well, I bet a certain percent of you all haven't heard it. Did ya think that "Because the Night" was the only song Patti Smith ever wrote? Or, did ya think Natalie Merchant wrote "Because the Night?"

A couple of things occur based on this video. First, Patti Smith was much bigger in Europe than she ever was in the U.S. Second, I'm pretty sure that the Dream Syndicate borrowed this bass guitar line for John Coltrane Stereo Blues. Now I gotta post some Dream Syndicate, but that was inevitable.

The top 10, more or less:

1. The Damned -- Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
1.5. The Damned -- White Rabbit
2. Junior Kimbrough -- Gotta Try You Girl
3. Paul Simon -- Stranded in a Limousine
4. Booker T & the M.G.s -- Green Onions
5. Lee Scratch Perry -- I am Happiness
6. The Jam -- In the City
7. Brute -- Nine High a Pallet
8. The Doors -- Peace Frog
9. Scientist -- Dance of the Vampires
10. Patti Smith -- Dancing Barefoot
