Midnight Music. 323.

Midnight Music used to be a daily post, at midnight, of a song I’d generally listened to that day. I don’t do it anymore, however, at least not with any regularity. For a while I did it each day, I think I maybe managed 200 in a row or so. Anyway, today’s song is Mitch…

Midnight Music. 321.

Midnight Music used to be a daily post, at midnight, of a song I’d generally listened to that day. I don’t do it anymore, however, at least not with any regularity (And not for the last 1214 days, we couldn’t leave it on Creed though). For a while I did it each day, I think…

2021 Top 100, Part 10.

10: Never Tear Us Apart by INXS Last Seen: 69th in 2020 Oh God. Like I haven’t written enough about this over the years. It’s perfection. We all know it. It’ll be in the chart most years, get used to it. 9: Are We Having Any Fun Yet? by Larkins Last Seen: 14th in 2020…

2021 Top 100, Part 9.

20: The Bird by SYML Last Seen: New Entry! This song is so fucking good. I love the mix of styles and how it handles the transitions between them. He does a great job with the vocals and uses them to hold the whole thing together. Work of art. 19: Surrender by Birdy Last Seen:…

2021 Top 100, Part 8.

30: Bom Bom by Sam And The Womp Last Seen: 90th in 2017 Bom Bom BOM! Not seen since it came 90th in 2017. I can’t express enough how much I like this song. I think it’s genius and I’m not even joking. 29: Youth by Daughter Last Seen: 62nd in 2020 Still perfect. Written…

2021 Top 100, Part 7.

40: We Don’t Need Another Hero by Tina Turner Last Seen: New Entry! From Holding Out For A Hero to We Don’t Need Another Hero. Tina and Bonnie, the classic battle. This is such a cool song. Tina is ace, as always, but I think it’s the music that really makes this song for me….

2021 Top 100, Part 6.

50: Monsters by Angus Powell Last Seen: New Entry! I thought this had been in my chart before, but apparently not. I first heard this in a TV show and, thinking about it now, I can’t remember at all what it was. It *may* have been Sherlock, but I’m guessing. Great tune from a guy…

2021 Top 100, Part 5.

60: Jealous Guy by Roxy Music Last Seen: New Entry! *cough*bestcoverever*cough*. New entry? Really? That does surprise me. Searching the site for this only brings up the page when I used it as one of my daily song posts. Well here it is at long last. Bryan Ferry is too cool in the video. TOO…

2021 Top 100, Part 4.

70: Shadow by Bleachers with Carly Rea Jepsen Last Seen: 7th in 2020 I really, really, really, need to get the Bleachers albums for my collection. Really like his work. Fond memories of going out at midnight on my scooter and just riding around whilst listening to this. 69: Waves by Dean Lewis Last Seen:…

2021 Top 100, Part 3.

80: Relax by Frankie Goes To Hollywood Last Seen: 3rd in 2019 A former top 5 song! I don’t know why it fell out of my most listened to last year. I think I was listening to it more than usual in 2019 because I wrote an intro to an imaginary Hotline Miami film and…
