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:
Courtesy of the Standards thread, this is the one for me this week:
Like A Storm -Never Surrender
Shallow Side - Try To Fight it
A new generation of rockers!
My favourite, since yesterday:
Like a stroppy Brotherhood of Man!
Speaking of stroppy, here's mine:
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.
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!)
This week, it's a lovely version of Never Can Say Goodbye by Dennis Coffey
From the new Evanescence album...
Never Go Back
(Imperfection is my favourite album track, but I first heard it over a week ago).
Daughtry-Bring Me To Life
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.
