Re: Song of the day

Hi Terry

Yes I agree, probably why I liked the song as I love Arcade Fire and Clap Your Hands - I suppose the question is are they a bit of a copy cat band? whatever I liked this song - will have a listen to some other stuff of theirs and see

Nicky
Yeah I'm definitely going to have to find more of their stuff, I'm not that fussed if it's copycat or not as long as it sounds good

Thanks for those two beauties Terry, Eels, what a great band they were, whatever happened to them, are they still around?
I'd not actually thought if they were still around or not, but a google indicates that yes they are, they have a new album out, AND they're playing the Spirgarten in Zurich on March 6th Awesome!

Yet more great tracks from great bands - I love Gomez and Grandaddy

My morning input, this has been in my head all last night and all morning so hopefully putting it here will get it out...

We Are Scientists - It's A Hit

Re: Song of the day

on a slightly different note:
I wanted to post the Urge Overkill version of this song, which has been stuck in my head for a number of days now, but could not find it online. I did find the Sisters' version, which definitely beats UK in surrealism. Brought me right back to puberty:

Sisters of Mercy doing Hot Chocolat's Emmaline




get that mascara out and enjoy!

Re: Song of the day

Gonna try this, even though I can't see you tube, so if you don't get the vid embedded, follow the link.

UNKLE - Hold my Hand




I was trying to find some of their old Trip Hop stuff and saw they had a new album, it's not at all what I expected (first time I heard it, didn't like it) but it's turned into one of my favourite albums. Really grows on you.

Re: Song of the day

Monday morning out of the way, time for a tune...

The Killers - Everything Will Be Alright



(Monday not going well so far...)

I believe in you and me
I'm coming to find you if it takes me all night
Wrong until you make it
And I won't forget you

At least I'll try and run, and run tonight
Everything will be alright

I was out shopping for a doll
To say the least, I thought I've seen them all
But then you took me by surprise
I'm dreaming bout those dreamy eyes
I never knew, I never knew
So take your suitcase, cause I don't mind
And baby doll, I meant it every time
You don't need to compromise
I'm dreaming bout those dreamy eyes
I never knew, I never knew
But it's alright...

Everything will be alright...

Not sure why I can't find the original video for this - but this will have to do anyway:

Happy Mondays - Kinky Afro

Re: Song of the day

...couldn't resist this one, sound quality isn't great though. Noel Gallagher live, doing his original version of Setting Sun before he gave it to The Chemical Brothers, mixing into the amazing Fade In-Out (sans Johnny Depp who played slide guitar on the original...)
