Alternative Song You Need To Listen To... "I Will Dare" by the Replacements

This song came out in 1984 and it is taken from the album Let It Be. The Replacements never wanted to be commercial rock stars , they just wrote elaborate pop rock songs. " I Will Dare" is about the first days of adolescent romance. Paul Westerberg imagined the anxiousness of a lover waiting for her phone call. But from all of this anxiety their is hope. " If you dare, I will dare."
the band left their adoration for he New York Dolls and looked for inspiration in Big Star. What' interesting about this song is that Westerbaerg plays manolin on this track and on guitar is none other tan ex R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck.
Do check out this track. It is a song that I am sure you'll be humming in your head for quite some time.
