These five are in my forever hundred. Thoroughly recommended, along with the albums and other tracks associated with. Well, maybe not all of OVSC’s oeuvre (particularly MILF … you have been warned).
- The Wood Burning Savages, America – Why is this not a global hit? Northern Ireland’s next big export.
- Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Howling at Nothing, only slightly better than S. O. B. – an album of genius.
- The Ouse Valley Singles Club, Girl from the Fens. Still listening to this, and still laughing! Who’d have thought … the video is priceless.
- Spector, Bad Boyfriend. Keep coming back for more.
Super, super song which just deserves the full Queen treatment. I know from years and years of listening to them that on every album Queen did Roger always brought two or three earth-shaking tracks to the table – often worldclass – like I’m in Love with My Car, Tenement Funster, A Kind of Magic and of course Radio Gaga. Sunny Day is a great, great song. Roger’s voice is so soulful, but I found myself really hankering after Freddie’s voice & Brian’s guitar, those harmonies, and the ineffable gorgeousness of one of the world’s great rock bands …
Right, off to listen to a classic, Sheer Heart Attack
