What with Christmas and the Sound of 2012 it has been a long time since I’ve actually done a “normal” Music Monday. For anyone who may have forgotten, I choose five songs I am loving with you at the moment and share them with the world. I hope you like them all (or at least some of them, let’s not be overly optimistic).
As usual I shall start with a Golden Old ‘un. I’ve chosen this one simply because it came up on my iPod the other day and I remembered how brilliant it was. It’s by Welsh songbird Duffy who was last seen cycling into the sunset drinking Coca-Cola. It’s her most popular and I would say best song Mercy and the video makes me laugh because she appears to set fire to the dancers in it. What an evil woman!
The next track has been around for a while but it’s only fairly recently that I decided I rather like it. It really surprised me that a Greek maze could make such good music. And not a Minotaur in sight! This is Labrinth with Earthquake. Oh and Tinie Tempah appears on the song too.
The next track is pretty well known but I don’t like to attempt to be all obscure all the time. It’s still a brilliant song. It’s Jessie J with Domino though I feel she has missed a trick in the video. Where’s the Domino outfit. I dressed as a domino years ago (it’s on this blog if you fancy a challenge of finding it) and if I can I’m sure Jessie J could. Anyway, here’s the song.
Next up is a song that has yet to be released and it sees the return of the Scissor Sisters and also features Krystal Pepsy. Fun fact: One of the people who make up Krystal Pepsy is Azealia Banks who I decided I didn’t like very much in last week’s Music Monday. This is a great track with Jake from the Scissor Sisters doing some rapping, which unbelievably works. Here’s the wonderful Shady Love.
And time for this week’s record of the week! It’s from my fave band at the moment Rizzle Kicks and is a catchy song which you just have to dance to. The video features Rizzle Kicks’ mums and James Corden. Who#d have thought?
There we go, another odd collection of music for your earholes. Hope you liked it and they’ll be more great music next Monday!
