“Shoot out the Lights” – X

X covers Richard Thompson’s classic 1982 song about a lone assassin.  From the mid-1990s Richard Thompson-tribute album “Beat the Retreat.”  Some blistering electric guitar on this one, as well as some nice harmonizing by John Doe and Exene Cervenka.  Seriously, if you’re a fan of X and/or Thompson, you really need to check this out.
