Could things be any worse in our country? Probably. So, I’m going to switch off, albeit temporarily, from reality and play some music. And not just any music. It’s time for that weekly random shuffle of tunes from my collection.
I’m here in my Man Cave, all ready to go. So, here it is Merry Friday. And welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends.
- Get Down Tonight by KC and the Sunshine Band. Some lush pop/funk by Howard Wayne Casey (KC, geddit?) from 1975.
- Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again by Andy Williams. The great crooner covers an old Fortunes classic from 1971.
- Kissin’ Time by Kiss. A hard rock nod to the Beach Boys’ Surfin’ USA and virtually the same tune.
- Voices In My Head by the Police. One of the very best Police tunes, with a stunning ear worm of a riff.
- Natural Thing by the Doobie Brothers. Great track from their finest album, The Captain And Me.
- Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadows by the Rolling Stones. The oldest tune so far in a golden old mix!
- If You Want Me To Stay by Sly and the Family Stone. Simply magnificent from Sly’s 1973 record Fresh.
- Sing For The Submarine by REM. Latter day REM from their Accelerator LP. Superb.
- Sunlight by DJ Sammy. Old school trance.
- You Should Be Dancing by the Bee Gees. Of course, it’s great.
That’s all, folks!
