“See a Little Light” – Bob Mould

Former Husker Du lead vocalist Bob Mould goes acoustic with his most famous song outside of Husker Du and the theme music for “The Daily Show.” “See a Little Light” was later the theme song for multiple TIAA-CREF ads. From Mould’s stellar “Workbook” album from 1989.

“Sinners and their Repentances” – Bob Mould

From Bob Mould’s game-changing 1989 solo album “Workbook,” the former Husker Du frontman and punk rock God channeled his inner Richard Thompson into decepitvely quieter, but no less intense songs. The opening acoustic bridge was used for years as bumper music on NPR’s “All Things Considered.” One of my all-time favorite albums.
