Song For Lovers

May 26, 2008

To add to my cheesy love songs posts recently…this one has come back into my head again- from the excellent album A Mouthful from The Do which I had posted about a while back.

The reason why lyrics have been standing out a bit more to me these days is that Wonderful Woman is now Wonderful Girlfriend and well…even I can be susceptible to cheesy lyrics with some sunshine in my life!

So anyway…gushing over and here is the tune!

Song For Lovers


What I am listening to now

February 23, 2008

Finally getting that Findo Gask tune out of the head- replaced by these…

Tegan and Sara- Are you ten years ago– no official video but the best fan one I could find.

The National- Squalor Victoria– again no official video so the best fan one I could find.

The Do- Aha-just the music


The Do- A Mouthful

February 19, 2008

Following on from the last post of groups that get stuck in the head The Do is one that the French friend introduced me to on one of the visits over to her and the lead singers voice is just infectious- one of those female vocalists that just sounds gorgeous singing in English with a slight hint of an accent.

Was able to listen to the whole album since a fan put up every single track up on YouTube and there are some great tracks there.  They are almost all in English and span between hip hop, pop and acoustic…and one Finnish song that will get your bum a wigglin.   They all have the same cover art for the track so it is just the music- I did come across a proper video of theirs on MySpace for On My Shoulders which is the original song that was stuck in the head.  On sale at but not sure if they deliver outside of France.
