Amidst the burgeoning band scene in the ’80s were following tried and tested strategies with their music, the severely underrated Southern rock act, The Georgia Satellites, had a unique charm of its own. The band saw abrupt ups and downs in its career run but managed to pull off some wicked numbers during its heyday. With that, here are some gems of songs by The Georgia Satellites.
“Keep Your Hands To Yourself”
“Keep Your Hands To Yourself” is a true-barn burner from the band that also places it as a one-hit-wonder composition as it probably showcased the peak songwriting of the Georgia Satellites.
“Battleship Chains” takes you back to the good old days of rock despite that it came out of an MTV-catering era, which was a double-edged sword for the band.
“All Over But The Cryin'”
The slow and tempered intro gives “All Over But The Cryin'” a mysterious vibe but eventually blasts off to full form as the song progresses.
“Open All Night”
Gritty, heavy blues rock greet the listener on “Open All Night”. Excellent guitar work is to be noted on the cut.
“Hippy Hippy Shake”
Who would’ve thought that the Georgia Satellites would bring the swinging sixties back in the ’80s? “Hippy Hippy Shake” was full-on rock and roll from start to finish.
“Don’t Pass Me By”
From a decent rock and roll progression that greets the listener to a growling, gritty blues-based rocker, “Don’t Pass Me By” is another Georgia Satellite treasure.
The Georgia Satellites guaranteed that rock and roll was here to stay with “Railroad Steel”. The hypnotic contrast between the vocal and guitars is enough to keep listeners at the edge of their seats.
