Secret Sisters – Big River

Unfortunately the version in my head is the one with Jack White on guitar, and it’s not available on youtube. Just imagine his howlin’, rockin’, choppy blues guitar all over this version.


Scott Walker – Sleepwalker’s Woman

When I was a teenager, I listened to John Peel to discover new and interesting music. I bought this album (Climate of Hunter) when it came out, and I was just reminded of it yesterday by a friend who had just discovered it. And obviously it’s stuck in my head now. Wonderful.



Ike and Tina Turner – I’ve Been Loving You Too Long

I love this groove. Ike and Tina get down and dirty.



Connan Mockasin – Do I Make You Feel Shy?

A new discovery for me. I kept catching snippets on the radio, but didn’t know who it was until Sunday. Now this seasick groove is stuck on repeat in my head. Let it wash you out to sea.



Bobby Womack – Across 110th Street

I’m going to see Bobby Womack in concert tonight, and I’ve had my favourite Bobby Womack song in my head since last night.


The Gun Club – Preaching The Blues

Bonus Earworm. This song has been in and out my head for about a week. WOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!



Prince – If I was Your Girlfriend

Annoyingly, there are no linkable versions of Prince’s original available on YouTube, so you’ll just have to imagine his purpleness.

Bonus earworm later as I forgot to post yesterday.

Kid Creole and the Coconuts – If You Want To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life

Ah, how charming. I woke up with these lyrics in my head this morning. A true, unexplained earworm.
