It’s Monday and it’s time for another five tracks that I’ve been loving lately. The future of this feature is really in the balance. Should I ditch it, change it a bit or keep it as it is? There’s a poll over there → somewhere for you to let me know and feel free to add a comment to expand your opinion. Now let’s get on with today’s edition.
Today’s first track is one of the lesser known songs from Adele. Whilst this track still has her beautiful voice and is full of emotion, it doesn’t make you want to cry every time you hear it. As lovely as Someone Like You is, there are times in a person’s life when it’s all a bit too much. Here’s Cold Shoulder with some lovely ice sculptures in the video:
Next up is a recent rediscovery of mine. I loved this song when it came out but for some reason it never found it’s way onto my iPod and I’d pretty much forgotten it. It’s Freemasons Feat. Sophie Ellis Bextor but it’s Sophie who deserves top billing for that wonderful voice. I love S.E.B. and it’s a shame she’s married to Richard from The Feeling. She’s far too old for me anyway. Here’s Heartbreak (Make Me a Dancer):
Next up is a song which randomly popped up on a music channel the other week and I realised I rather like it. I’m not really sure what an earth the lyrics are trying to say but no matter, here’s Bohemian Like You by The Dandy Warhols.
Something a bit different for the next track. It’s from Jeff Wayne’s wonderful Musical War of the Worlds which I think is quite possibly the best version of the War of the Worlds that has ever been created. Expect more raving about this in the upcoming Friday Review. This is my fave track from it Forever Autumn. And you have to listen to the talky bit, it’s all part of it!
And it’s now time for record of the week. The rest of this week’s choices were fairly obscure and unexpected so I think I can justify having one current popular song in the mix. As usual it’s been around a while and I’ve only just got into it but this is Aviici with Levels.
I hope you enjoyed the selection, now go and vote on the poll! Thanks!
