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.

Seth Lakeman - Kitty Jay

Dark and terrible folk music from the west country. Lakeman plays a right menacing fiddle. The roots of folk music are pretty grim generally and it's good when today's folkettes acknowledge that.

Air - All I Need

Always my favourite track off Moon safari. And I count that album as a classic, one of the best of the past twenty years. Could could be made by Frenchman and is uniquely suited to lazy afternoons in the sun.
