"Why Can't I Touch It" may be my wife's favorite rock song ever. I can invariably bring her out of a funk or make her sway happily in a bar by putting it on. And we got to see Lambchop do an absolute rave-up version of it as an encore to a free show in Prospect Park a few years ago.

It is a great song. I had one of those moments where I realized I'd never made the connection between really famous song and a really famous band. Like, wait a second, this is the Buzzcocks? I always thought I knew what the Buzzcocks sounded like... and apparently I didn't.

I enjoy the Buzzcocks, though I often forget about them, and I love "Why Can't I Touch It?"

Also, with reference to the title Singles Going Steady, I've always loved that Don Caballero had a collection called Singles Breaking Up.
