The Full Catastrophe – Playlist September 5th 2009

‘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:

I wanderd lonely as a cloud. That floats on high oer vales and hills

I wander'd lonely as a cloud. That floats on high o'er vales and hills

John, I’m Only Dancing – David Bowie

Land Of A Thousand Dances – Wilson Pickett

Sports & Wine – Ben Folds Five

Family Tree – Jake Thackray

Kiss Me, Honey, Honey – Shirley Bassey

Maybe This Time – Connie & Carla (Soundtrack)

Love Never Runs On Me – Paul Kelly

Escapade – Paris Combo

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
