Friday Fictioneers – Falling

Can it be true? Can it be Friday again already? Read more…

Choon Choosday: Aretha Franklin – I Say A Little Prayer

Aretha annouced last week that she was going to release just one more album – a duet album with Stevie Wonder – and that would be it. She would draw a line under it and hang up the mic.

So in my own little corner of the interweb, I thought I’d pay tribute to the Queen of Soul. I could have chosen any one of so many great songs she has recorded over the years, but settled on this one. I love the subtle yet soulful piano and the perfect accompaniment of the backing vocals, both underpinning a perfect performance from a unique vocal talent. Quiet – loud – quiet wasn’t invented by Kurt Cobain you know, here is Aretha singing creamy smooth verses interspersed with choruses where she unleashes the raw tornado power of one of the greatest voices in twentieth century music. Turn it up, sing along, it’s a

choooooooooooooooooonn!!

 

Friday Fictioneers – Park

Hello you. How’s it going? You’re looking well, have you been working out? I love that top by the way. Read more…

Choon Choosday: Ellen Page & Michael Cera – Anyone Else But You

I love the film Juno, and this cover that features at the end. It’s a great cover of a great song, and its understated lack of loveydoveyness makes it a perfect choon to bring you on Valentine’s Day.

Love to you all from Reclining Towers, enjoy this

chooooooooooooooonn!!

Wednesday’s email is without doubt one of the highlights of my week. Read more…

Choon Choosday: Polyphonic Spree – Lithium

I admire a well-made cover, one which brings something new rather just impersonating the original. And here is a wonderful cover. The PS always seem to have such tremendous fun whenever they perform, all 365764 of them, and this is no exception.

Did Kurt intend this tune to be so uplifting and enjoyable? I severely doubt it. But that’s exactly how it turned out, and I’m sure he would have loved it. How could he not? It’s a

chooooooooooooooooonn!!

 

Choon Choosday: PF Project – Choose Life

The new Trainspotting film T2 is out this week, so what a wonderful excuse to mine one of the splendid songs featured on its soundtrack and that of its predecessor. Or maybe from the remix album that went with the original.

Ewan McGregor’s speech is one of the iconic passages of modern cinema, up there with Samuel L Jackson’s biblical quote in Reservoir Dogs, and here it is set to a house backing with a nice acidy 303 riff burnt through it.

Yes it’s a bit sweary but it’s a classic, has a gorgeous breakdown and it’s a

choooooooooooo(se)nn!
