Songs of the Day

© Stanley Marcus
These could legitimately be modern day indie tunes. Add some fuzzy guitars (and remove the dialogue from the Shangri-Las track) and you've got another version of Best Coast. Also, listen to the opening drum beat in The Ronettes tune. I read an interesting bit arguing that it's the most iconic drum beat, because of its instant recognizability and frequent use by other artists, in all of pop music.

The Ronettes - "Be My Baby"
The Shangri-Las - "Leader of the Pack"
