Song of the day: I always want the things that I can’t have

Hello kids,

So I know I promised to give you the second good news of the week. But right now I’m still stuck on Citizens!

I am so incredibly excited for Thursday night’s concert.
I hope to see you all there.
Here is (I’m in Love With Your) Girlfriend.

I wish I could make a soundtrack to my life and breathe in the notes every day


Song of the day: There's been a lot of talk of love

Hello kids,

So I hope you are enjoying The XX. So after the rave about the girl guy voice partnership I give you another band that does similar and that is also very close to my heart.
We are talking about the brilliant Stars from Canada. Not only do they have the girl-guy duo going but I discovered them at the same time as the debut album of The XX so they will always be joined together in my memories of my 5 months in Rome.

Those of you who were there from the start will remember that I gave out Your Ex-Lover is Dead as one of the first song of the days. Then I also gave you something from their brilliant 5th album The Five Ghosts,  He Dream’s He’s awake.

I am happy to announce they have a new fantastic album called The North. And there are several tunes I want to share with you. Let me start with Hold on When You Get Love and Let Go When You Get It

I know it’s slightly corny but I do adore the chorus:

Take the weakest thing in you
And then beat the bastards with it
And always hold on when you get love,
So you can let go when you give it

I wish I could make a soundtrack to my life and breathe in the notes every day

Song of the day: Bruned out flames should never re-ignite

Hello kids,

I got such positive feedback from yesterday’s track that I thought I would give out another one from Daughter.
This is Home – a little livelier sound due to the effective clapping type of sound in the background.
I love the build-up to the final “and I thought you might”

As always giving you quality tunes,

I wish I could make a soundtrack to my life and breathe in the notes every day

Song of the day: After sex the bitter taste, been fooled again, the search continues

Dear Song of the dayers,

I hope you are all jamming to the 300 days of Song of the day Playlist.

In the meanwhile, back to our usual song of the day, and back to the Paleo lineup.
As mentioned one of the bands featured is Bloc Party. One of my favourite bands.
Just before they took a break I stayed an extra two days in Greece and went solo to one of their concerts to be able to see them in the flesh (and it was well worth it). So you can’t imagine how delighted I am to hear that after a 3 years they have reunited (hopefully Kele has realized he is nothing without his entourage). Us fans are all waiting excitingly for their new album this year and I’m sure it will be as fantastic as the last.

In the meantime there are way way too many great songs to keep you busy with.
Of course this is not their first feature on Song of the day. I have already tried to get you into them with the popular Flux, Helicopter and the Minotaur remix of Tulips.

But now it’s time to break away from the popular and give you (possibly) my favourite.

Kreuzberg – the song is inspired by the famous part of Berlin and its symbolism for division and  war and how this is a metaphor for how a person is reflecting on the difference between intimacy and love and the war between the two.  (or at least that’s what I think)

there is a wall that runs right through me, just like the city I will never be joined

Enjoy the rest of A weekend in the City – the album is full of gems (Sunday is another favourite). Not to mention the entire Intimacy Album (including the remixes). Oh wait and Silent Alarm. Just listen to it all.

I, I have decided, at 25, something must change.
