Foo Fighters' Taylor Hawkins: 5 Songs I Wish I Wrote

Drummer/songwriter on the weirdness of Jane's Addiction, the genius of Jeff Buckley and more

The Hollies, "The Air That I Breathe"

Albert Hammond Sr, the father of Albert Hammond Jr. of the Strokes, wrote this. I think this is one of the most fucking beautiful songs, ever. Radiohead got sued over it since it sounds a lot like "Creep." I discovered them late in life. They've got a cool drummer. This is from after Graham Nash left. It was sort of their last hurrah.
