Girls, you know you better…watch out… This weeks track is ‘Doo Wop (That Thing)’ by Lauryn Hill, from her 1998 debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. This album is one of my favourites of all time, it was … Continue reading
My favourite Paolo Nutini song ‘Jenny Don’t Be Hasty’ is this weeks throwback track, from back in 2006. This guy was just 18 when he released his first album, These Streets, and I loved the rhythm, lyrics and overall vibe of this song, which led to me playing it over and over again.
And 9 years later, I still know all the words! Ha, what a loser. Anyway, I don’t care, it’s a great track and the kind of song that you wish someone had written about you. Or maybe I just have a thing for younger men…
The Christmas theme is now gone from the blog and onto the New Year we go! I also changed my ringtone on my phone over Christmas, rocking ‘Blue Christmas’ by Elvis, so I needed to get a normal tune back on the go.
Could I be bothered to hook my phone up to iTunes and get my beloved hubby to edit me a new one this year? Nope! So I picked for one already stored on my phone, and as soon as I played it I remembered why I love this song so much!
‘Cassius’ by Foals is my throwback track of the day, and it’s a great stomper of a record. I played it last night and was instantly shaking my head about and wiggling my body like a loon. This song was my first introduction to the band, leading to an obsession with their first album, Antidotes. This is the first time I’ve seen the video, and well, it ain’t great, but it’s the music that matters, right?
This song makes me just wanna BOUNCE! My fondest memory of our old flat in Leicester is of me being home alone, doing some mundane chores about the flat, this song coming on the stereo and me going absolutely nuts dancing and singing around the flat. Ahhhh, happy days!
My only disappointment with this song is that the one time I went to see them live (rowdiest gig I’ve ever been to, at the Kasbah in Coventry), was that they never performed it in the set! Come on guys!!! When you tour, play the hits, for the love of god!
Hope you enjoy as much as me…and check out their other stuff too.
