Home and dry
...ah. the week is oh so nearly in sight, there's gigs to go to, and the first week back at work has actually been okay (so far. Touch wood).
Anyway, I decided that I would actually post four fairly upbeat and wonderful tracks.
Pet Shop Boys -'Home and Dry.' mp3
JC at The Vinyl Villain seemed a few weeks ago to feel that he had to justufy his love for the Pet Shop Boys. Absolutely not! Still wonderful, twenty years on.
The Rapture -'Get Myself Into It.' mp3
Is Pieces Of the People we love the fourth or third Rapture album, if we include The Mirror, Out of the Races...and Echoes? Oh well. Either way, this still makes me want to dance.
Amy Winehouse -'Rehab.' mp3
'Have you heard Amy Winehouse's new single?' asked my brother's flatmate six months ago. Personally I was aware of her, but thought her too 'coffee-table.' Then I heard this, and a few months later her album ended up being my second favourite album of the year (2006). You never can tell...
Ronettes -'Be my Baby.' mp3
The sheer wealth of emotions this song can make you feel is just unbelievable.
As always, if you like the tracks, buy them on Amazon, iTunes or your local record shop. These tracks will be posted for a week only. Enjoy!
