Today´s positive/magic song is Hüsker Dü´s “Makes No Sense at All” from their fourth album “Flip Your Wig” released in September 1985. Written by Bob Mould, the song was one that Mould felt aged well. The song was released as the debut single from the album, reaching number 2 on the UK indie charts. The song has since seen positive critical reception and has been performed live by both Hüsker Dü and Mould at his solo shows. “Flip Your Wig” was the band’s first self-produced album. It was the best-selling album to that point for the band’s label SST Records, and the last album they made for that label. The band spent months in the studio to achieve higher-quality production for the album’s melodic power pop songs.

In a review on Allmusic, the song is called “perhaps the group’s greatest fusion of punk and pop…Mould had, quite simply, written one of his best melodies, capable of containing the furious energy of his guitar style while still offering a potent melodic hook that made the most of the band’s psychedelic undertow.” Rob Tannenbaum of Rolling Stone said the song “could almost be termed catchy.” #CoronaBeGoneYouBastard #DayThirtysix
