    A great song to play in your car, very loud and with the windows open.

    Cicero - Love is Everywhere


    I'm sure the soapchat members from the UK are familiar with this song, but I had never heard it before (or any other song by this artist).

    I must admit I thought of you when I heard this one.

    I recognise the name and this song, but I can't place him in any of the decades I've been listening to music.

    Good find though, I really like it.

    I really like it! It's got the same euphoric early 90s feel as 'Independence' by Lulu. I'm gonna have to buy it.

    My new jam is this little gem, a rare '60s track by David Essex:

    Which makes me wonder, are there any friendly punk (or post/neo/semi-) punk songs?
    This is not hardcore punk of course, it sounds very (oops, almost wrote "nice") pleasant, and surprisingly familiar.
    Lots of details that remind me of other songs. I like that sound starting at 1:37.

    Depends what you mean by punk, of course, but 'Teenage Kicks' by the Undertones is pretty life-affirming. So is 'Love You More' by the Buzzcocks --"until the razor cuts", anyway.

    Haha.

    Maybe I just assumed it was all "anti", and devoid of anything too romantic or positive.
    "Fair-weather friend", such a funny expression. We call it "mooi-weer vriend", but I hadn't heard it in ages.
    Probably too old-fashioned now.

    This sounds like a very famous song (or a song that should be famous) but I had never heard it before.



    And apparently I wasn't the only one.

    Dana Gillespie - No, No, No

    My gem of the month. I must have this!
    (Saint Etienne's cover of the Polnareff song brought me "there". Ta!)

    From the new Evanescence album...

    Never Go Back




    (Imperfection is my favourite album track, but I first heard it over a week ago).​

    I found one of her songs on a CD, and I thought - who is Laurie Styvers?

    Is the woman with the glasses his mother? She seems so supportive.

    This week, a cover version of the Sugababes (Girls Aloud?) song "Overload".

    I find it so sultry and seductive.
