‘Tis spring time when a young man’s or woman’s fancy turns to… you know the rest. The buds are budding, the sun is shining and we are all agog with the feeling of renewal.
So sonsider this playlist as coming with a seasonal flourish, hence:

Sports & Wine – Ben Folds Five
Family Tree – Jake Thackray
Kiss Me, Honey, Honey – Shirley Bassey

Have Google Translate at the ready when you go here and find out more about this great band!
Walk On By – The Stranglers
Habanera – Muriel Smith
From one of the seemimngly endless versions of George Bizet’s “Carmen”. This is “Carmen Jones” and takes a look at the story from an african-american perspective. Have a geek at it.
Colour My World – Petula Clark
1960s chic and cool at its fabbiest….
The Shrew – Beirut
American Pie – Don McLean
The Way You Look Tonight – Brian Ferry
Pure bliss from the Ferryman, but this is the definitive performance this Jerome Kern & Dorothy Fields chanson – and it is a little camp, in the best possible way!
I Don’t Remember Stonewall – Lee Lucas
A very queer take on this Maltby and Shire number.
Since I Fell For You – Mark Fuller
And I Love Her – Auscultate
Tra Le La Le La Triangle – Patsy Cline
Speak Low – Mark Jones, John O’May & Martin Croft
The Day Is Long – Jearlyn Steele
