Annie Lennox - No More I Love You's

A cover apparently. But this is much better.

LCD Soundsystem - Drunk Girls

"Drunk Boys, They steal, they steal from the cupboards." True words those. Got a good bounce to it, this. Invigorating!

Bootsy Collins and the Cinncinnati Bengals - Fear Da Tiger

Bootsy Collins, a bunch of American football players and a man dressed as a tiger. The song performed by a sports team gets a bad rep, but you can't really go wrong with a line up like that.

The Charlatans - A Man Needs To Be Told

A few few years ago, I was working in a factory where the speakers where tuned to a fairly dreadful radio station. This track was high up ion the playlist for a long time though and it always brought a smile to my face as I pushed a useless broom around. Great falsetto and Piano hook.

Booze Party - Three Aces and a Joker

First you fill it up, then then you drink it down.
Again you fill it up, Again you drink it down.

First rate Rockabilly wisdom there.

Finley Quaye - Love Gets Sweeter Every Day.

Not the nicest of chaps Finley Quaye, but he made one rather nice album and this is a lovely cut from it. Great example of how a simple chorus can be very effective.

The Stone Roses - I Am The Resurrection

Sometimes it's good to be obvious. Listening to this again one is reminded what a bowfin singer Ian Brown can be and what a bloody tremendous drummer Reni is.
