Splendidly superficial simplicity - DA-DA DA-DA

Advantages: I love the song - and love the memories it brings back
Disadvantages: Absolutely none

Having had a passion for music and many songs over the years as consumer, record reviewer, amateur musician and performer, and DJ, I often find myself compiling short lists of all-time favourites in idle moments. But the one which sits at the top, in the ...

Always the Sun - For my Late Summer of 1993

Advantages: Balances melancholy cynicism with uplifting defiance
Disadvantages: None

A large open field that needed cutting, regular cups of sweet tea, a scythe, a pair of shears, an old radio cassette player and the best company in the world provided the backdrop for my favourite song. I was born in July during Britain’s hottest summer s ...

Turning the Radio Up Whenever This Woman Is Singing My Song

Advantages: It's smooth, passionate, vibrant and the video is wonderful in its simplicity
Disadvantages: None for me, but it's kind of sad some have written her off as a one-hit wonder

Probably because I'm a Movie Guy and not a Music Guy is the reason much of my favourite music I discovered on movie soundtracks, which provide a nice variety of different songs and bands. Many of these favourite song reviews I've read stipulate that it's ...
