12. She’s in Love with You (Suzi… and Other Four Letter Words, 1979)

“The title of the revue pretty much says it all. The song isn’t the greatest but it does show off her ability with a long neck Bass. Forget the happy days bit and just enjoy the sound.”

11. Cat Size (Quatro, 1974)

“Great song, & thanks so much for putting it up. This is one of my absolute favorites from my hero, Suzi Quatro. I especially love when she performs it in “Happy Days” as Leather Tuscadero. GO SUZI!”

10. Tear Me Apart (Aggro-Phobia, 1976)

“Not top-notch Suzi here, but she still effects a no-nonsense attitude over a production that harks back to those great early Eddie Cochran singles for inspiration.”

9. Rock Hard (Rock Hard, 1980)

“Somehow this managed to end up on the soundtrack to what was to have been the new-wave “Saturday Night Fever”, a long-forgotten opus called “Times Square”.  RSO was in the middle of financial implosion when it came out, and all the hype in the world couldn’t get it above #37 in the US.  “

8. Daytona Demon (Suzi Quatro, 1973)

“Hey! – I thought I was the only one who thinks this is Suzi at her best! I love it just that little bit more – but hard not to love ALL her singles from this period. It was obviously ripped from ‘Glad All Over’ but that don’t matter – what a great great single….and the video shows Suzi with a rock chick attitude matched by NO-ONE since. Gold dust.”

7. Stumblin’ In ( If You Knew Suzi…, 1978)

“”Stumblin’ In” is mellow, swaying, bellbottoms-wearing 70s pop. It’s corny, but pretty enough to make up for that. It would fit in fine on the 70s soft-rock nostalgia station next to the Carpenters and Bread. This used to be a mix tape favorite of mine when I wanted to throw in a quiet moment.”

6. Your Mama Won’t Like Me (Your Mama Won’t Like Me, 1975)

“Suzi goes funk ‘n’ rollin’ via the bad reputation laced “Your Mamma Won’t Like Me”, the title track from Quatro’s 1975 LP. Penned by the tag-team of Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn, lil’ leather clad Suzi also relied on the dynamic song writing duo to produce her third studio LP.”

5. The Wild One (The Runaways, 1974)

“To me this record was punk rock before punk even happened. A year or so later The Sex Pistols adopted pretty much the same guitar sound – but a somewhat more anarchic attitude! Back when Suzi had ‘it’ – a classic.”

4. Can the Can (Suzi Quatro, 1973)

“The combustive “Can the Can” carries a basic beat and a repetitive riff, while Suzi pushes the infectious start-to-close hand-clapping song with her sing-it/shout-it delivery.”

3. If You Can’t Give Me Love (If You Knew Suzi…, 1978)

“Suzi herself appeared to stay true to her roots and to her audience soon as that second wind was over – two more hits and that’s what it was in terms of chart-success, then it was “how to survive in a decent way” and this is what the lady did.”

2. Devil Gate Drive (Quatro, 1974)

“I’m usually quiet, old fashioned with old fashioned values but this song.. Wow! Makes me HOT! Very sexy voice. She’s naughty and if I ever have an alter ego..”

1. 48 Crash (Suzi Quatro, 1973)

“Great title for a start and just what is a silk-sash-bash anyway? This was Suzi’s second stomping hit penned by Chinn and Chapman and doesn’t stray too far from the “Can The Can” template. This means we get battered about the head by the title, that pounding loose-skinned drum-beat, a dash of Hammond organ and Quatro’s strident vocal. Apparently the lyric’s about the male menopause, meaning I’m about three years on.Never mind, this glam-rock classic will shake me out of my torpor in no time at all.”
