- ‘Lotus Flower’ – Radiohead
Call me cheeky for including this when it already appeared on my ‘Top 20 Radiohead Songs’ post but thought I’d put it in here as well to emphasise just how ridiculously catchy that chorus is: ‘Just to see whaaaat if!’ Still pissed I couldn’t get tickets!
- ‘Mr Soul’ – Neil Young
Mr Young gives this Buffalo Springfield classic the electronic treatment. Results are surprisingly addictive. Check the mean guitar solo.
- ‘Rebel Dance’ – Observer Allstars And King Tubby
Have spent a fair few Sunday afternoons marking with this LP on. Spring has arrived!
- ‘Head Over Heels’ – Tears For Fears
You might remember it from ‘Donnie Darko.’ Absolute earworm. Expect to find yourself randomly belting this out at inappropriate moments.
- ‘After Dawn’ – Letherette
The climax of Jon Hopkins ‘LateNight Tales’ entry. A good pre-drinking tune.
- ‘Everyone’s Gone To The Movies’ – Steely Dan
My love affair with the Dan continues. Total earcandy this one. I’m baffled as to why they didn’t release it as a single. Maybe it’s because it seems to be about a paedophile… hmm…
- ‘Dance Slam’ – Glenn Underground
A bassline fit to shake a multitude of asses.
- ‘Drama’ – Derrick May
Makes you feels like you’re bounding through the cosmos on some big-ass space hopper. Probably my favourite track from the ‘Innovator’ comp.
- ‘Solarian Six’ – Danny Wang
Insanely grooooovy track from disco doyen Wang.
- ‘Satisfaction’ – Inertia
I came across this sultry gem on the ‘Panic in Detroit’ comp. Turns out it’s no other than ‘Voodoo Ray’ shaman Gerald Simpson. Shteamy shtuff.
