Song of the day

OK so I thought since there are a lot of music fans here we could run a "Song of the Day" thread same as the Pic of the Day, Youtube of the Day etc,

I'll start with a song I first heard on Zane Lowe's show on Radio 1 a couple of years ago, bought the album as soon as it came out, and then lost it in Exeter when I moved here

This was probably my favourite song of 2006.

Scott Matthews - Elusive



Favourite lyrics;

"Something says this ain't right, there's more to her than meets the eye..."

Re: Song of the day

Here is a contender for song of the day. Damien Rice and Ray Lamontagne singing to love somebody. Their voices sound like butter together.

One word, amazing.

Re: Song of the day

I saw Amos Lee play live in London 3 years ago or so. Just found this live version of Seen It All Before.

Absolutely top class mate.

There's a full Damien Rice concert divx you can download called 'four seasons', you should have a root around for that, maybe there's a torrent somewhere (whatever that is ).

Re: Song of the day

He does an amazing version of The Blowers Daughter at the four seasons, he mixes into Creep by Radiohead and then back again. So good it makes my skin shiver.

Damien Rice = my hero

Here we go. I must say I fancy taking double bass lessons after listening to this.

Re: Song of the day

One last one from me and then I'm away...partly for the great riff, partly for the great opening lyrics, and partly for the great video.

I love this song

Beck - Deadweight



On a highway, unpaved, going my way, you're so alone today, like a ghost town I've found there's no relief, no salt in the sea, is it true what they say, you can't behave, you gamble your soul away, measuring your dreams, oh this life seems like the gristle of loneliness....don't let the sun catch you crying...

Re: Song of the day

Well as I like the idea of this thread I wanted to try and keep it alive. So here is a couple of contenders.

The first is a girl called Stevie Ann with a nice cover of Toxic, much better than the original.

How does this work?

The second video is from Jason Mraz when he used to play live at Java Joes without a microphone and has a nice sound. The song is called 10'000 motherf***ers I really like Jason Mraz and there are some other good songs on youtube from the same gig. This one to me is the best as its just him and the guitar.

Let me know if you like it and keep this thread alive!

A powerful W C Handy Classic from me, a slow-burner whose initial lament doesn't betray what is to come ...

Its really nice..... brilliant voice really. Once the song gets into its stride, the guitar sounds alot like Aerosmith - Dream On.

Parental warning required

This is a cover of Dr Dre's "Bitches Ain't Shit" done by the wonderful Ben Folds.
