Gabriels – Love and Hate in a Different Time

This song and it’s haunting vocals live in my brain just now. I’d love to see them live.


Tom Waits – The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not Me)

Today I took a wonky, tilted photo of a cruise ship in the harbour at Greenock, and my friends all commented that it looked like it had been drinking. So this is my theme for today.


The Blue Nile – Headlights on the Parade

I’ve gone down a bit of a Blue Nile and Paul Buchanan rabbit hole this evening. I will always love this tribute to my local Main Street here in Glasgow and wanted to share it with you all.

serpentwithfeet – Same Size Shoe

Completely unbidden earworm. I love serpentwithfeet. Such a sweet video too and I am regularly amused by the trumpet scat section.


Outkast – Roses

A visit to a local rose garden the other day brought this to mind.


Dimitri from Paris – Une Very Stylish Fille

One of my friends is a whippet enthusiast, and sometimes posts pictures on social media of a whippet called Hazel wearing a headscarf and sunglasses. She’s like a whippet version of Audrey Hepburn and every time I see her, I hear this song, because she is a Very Stylish Girl.


Marvin Gaye – What’s Happening Brother?

One of the jazzier numbers from the seminal What’s Going On? Album by Marvin Gaye. Got those chord changes firmly lodged in my head.


Lauryn Hill – Ex Factor

And today’s earworm is those chord changes of that middle 8 and the sublime refrains and harmonies of Lauryn Hill.


Belle and Sebastian – Legal Man

Backing vocal earworm!

L O V E Love, it’s coming back, it’s coming back!


Boney M – Daddy Cool

Something happened at work today that made this song pop up in my brain. Thought I’d share the love.
