MP3: The Cure – Love Song
A POEM (WITH A DIFFERENCE)….
You’re always on my mind,
Ever since we met.
You’re always in my thoughts,
Impossible to forget.
You’re always in my heart,
Which puts me in your debt.
You’re always in my dreams,
And my dreams are always wet.
If you’re one of the “forever alone” types….
…..then fear not cos at least you’re probably not as fucked up as these kinda people…..or maybe you are.

Another new section, just a simple post about cover versions of songs i like, dislike or maybe even just find funny. I’m gonna do 5 songs each post (well it’ll actually work out at 10 cos both versions will be included). Usually i would post MP3 versions of the songs so that you would be able to download them but i’m having a few problems with my external hard drive at the moment and it has practically all of my music on it. Over 200GB of music just vansihed 😦
Anyways, videos will have to do for the time being…and even at that, it won’t be the official videos. YouTube doesn’t allow you to embed “official” videos.

Hot on the trails of the $elling Out mixtape comes “Standing On The Edge Of Pop”. The concept stays the same on this mix. Although this time its not quite so blatant. $elling Out was designed as a mix that (hopefully) everybody would recognise the songs from. Tracks and artists that pretty much everyone has or should have heard of at some point in their musical life. Standing On The Edge however is a more varied mix that features artists and songs who are well known and some artists who (i believe) should have pop recognition but are still unknown to a certain extent, well unknown to most ears anyway. All of the bands involved in the mix have a certain degree of pop sensibility regarding melody thus their tunes are catchy. Any one of the songs wouldn’t sound out of place on your work radio. Depending on which station you listen to that is. Unfortunately for me, everyone in the garage i work in has a taste in Clyde 102.5 or Real Radio….both are pish. Bring back XFM Scotland! ….. Back to the mix, i tried to make it as variable as i could to cater for many different types of listeners. Every song is a pop gem, some you’ll recognise, some you won’t but i hope you enjoy nonetheless.

I know its Valentines Day tomorrow and i don’t want to dampen the mood for people but seen as today is Friday the 13th i’ve decided to put a post up for those that are unlucky in love. Songs for people that have experienced broken hearts, for people that have broke hearts themselves (everybody has) and for the lots of people who will spend Valentines Day alone this year.
The first bunch of songs are ones of loss, hurt and memories. The usual suspects like Jeff Buckley and Bon Iver are in there but there’s a few others that i thought would fit in quite nice. I’m not Coldplays biggest fan but even i can’t deny “The Scientist” is a touching ode to lost love. The Twilight Singers went for an orchestral background and a boy/girl conversation type song on “Number Nine”. Whereas “No One’s Gonna Love You” by Band of Horses and “Maps” by the YYY’s are more stripped back but no less haunting. The Postal Service also go for the boy/girl conversation point of view on the ethereal “Nothing Better” whislt managing to keep their trademark bleepy sound. Mystery Jets, Chairlift and Bloc Party bring an indie touch to the mix with tales of bruised love (literally) and broken dreams . Frightened Rabbit’s song about “getting your hole” (as they so delicately put it) offers something a bit more awkward and an altogether different outlook on finding love or thinking you’ve found love. And then there’s the classic break up song by Fleetwood Mac. “Go Your Own Way” was written and recorded just after band members Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks broke up and the tension and emotion is clear for all to hear as they share vocal duties.
Jeff Buckley – Last Goodbye
Bon Iver – Skinny Love
Coldplay – The Scientist
The Twilight Singers (feat Mark Lanegan) – Number Nine
Band Of Horses – No One’s Gonna Love You
Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Maps
Mystery Jets – Flakes
Chairlift – Bruises
Bloc Party – I Still Remember
Frightened Rabbit – Keep Yourself Warm
Fleetwood Mac – Go Your Own Way
The next trio of songs are the polar opposite of the ones above. Instead of getting you down or making you feel sorry for yourself these songs might make you feel better about a break up. From the slightly sarcastic and provoking “I Never Wanted You” by Headphones, right though to the pretty blatant “fuck you” blasts from The Avalanches and McAlmont & Butler.
Headphones – I Never Wanted You
The Avalanches – Since I Left You
McAlmont & Butler – Yes
The last song doesn’t really need any description. One of the most simple but moving songs ever. Probably something to do with the fact that Thom Yorkes vocals still sound so fragile when he sings live.
MP3: Radiohead – True Love Waits (live)
And thats it for my first real post. Don’t worry they won’t all be this doomy and gloomy. It just happens to be one of those days today.
