Hello and welcome to another music Monday. This week my selections are a bit more unusual which is partly because someone complained last week (you know who you are) but also because these are all songs I happen to be loving at the moment.
The first track is this week’s “Golden Olden”, a song which is getting on a bit now but is still rather awesome. This is something of a one-hit wonder by the never heard of again Fountains of Wayne with Stacy’s Mom. I rather like the fact that the video pretty much plays out like the song. Not enough videos do that, they often seem to be completely separate from the lyrics.
Next up is a track by a man called Miles Kane. I first discovered him on Breakfast TV, which is a bit odd. It means at some point I must have been awake during the time breakfast TV was on! He is the lead singer of the band The Last Shadow Puppets so if you recognise the voice it might be because of that. This track is the brilliant Come Closer.
Our third track today has found fame thanks to an advert for tea. It’s a version of the song Wherever You Will Go originally by The Calling. This version has turned it into a full power ballad and it is sung by a lady with a lovely voice called Charlene Soraia. It really is a beautiful rendition of the song.
The next track is Cage the Elephant’s latest song Aberdeen. I quite like the song but the video is the saddest video involving a dragon/dinosaur thing you will ever witness. Really.
And finally it’s time for my record of the week. It’s a few years old but I’ve rediscovered it this week and love it all over again. It has a very 80s sound and they even made the video look like it’s from the 80s. I love this track so much and I hope you do too! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Mystery Jets with Two Doors Down!
I hope you enjoyed this week’s selection and as always let me know your thoughts, good or bad, and suggest any songs I should listen to. See you soon!
