Stuck on repeat…July 2015

A small selection of what I’m playing over and over and over and over right now. Click on the titles for YouTube/Spotify links.

Calvin Harris + Disciples – How Deep is Your Love

It’s summer and the club tunes are hitting the charts. I love the deep-house-esque-ness of this. Something sultry to throw a few shapes to. 

Favourite lyric: I want you to breathe me, Let me be your air…

Simon & Garfunkel – El Condor Pasa (If I Could)

I knew the intro. I just didn’t realise it was S&G (thanks DJ Shadow) and immediately Shazam-ed it when watching Wild.

Favourite lyric: I’d rather be a hammer than a nail…

Bahamas – Lost in the Light

Another Shazam find whilst watching Very Good Girls. This song is a heady, languorous summer in musical form. 

Favourite lyric: Before we were lovers, I swear we were friends…

Aminata – Love Injected

Yes, this was indeed the Latvian entry for Eurovision 2015. I was surprised to hear something so decent being performed and it’s been on the playlist ever since. If you like this, you might like the winning Swedish entry by Loreen called Euphoria

Favourite lyric: Your love revives my soul…

Major Lazer (feat. Ellie Goulding & Tarrus Riley) – Powerful 

I’ve had the album on shuffle for a while as I’m a little (a lot) addicted to Lean On but this is a gorgeous little tune. 

Favourite lyric: There’s an energy when you hold me, when you touch me, it’s so powerful…

Tay Salem – Zero

This is my favourite track from the forthcoming French Cold EP at the moment. Trust me, this talented bloke is going places.

Favourite lyric: Your demons, each evening, retreat…

Kings of Leon – Dancing on my Own

One of their Live Lounge covers. A beautiful, slightly dark version of the awesome track by Robyn.

Favourite lyric: I’m in the corner, watching you kiss her…

Ben Howard – I Forget Where We Were (Spotify Sessions)

I’m a huge Ben Howard fan and was lucky to have finally seen him live at Alexandra Palace earlier this year. This version of one of my favourites (from the album of the same name) never fails to lift me from a melancholy mood without being too overly happy-happy, joy-joy. Listen out for the “Wahey!” at the beginning, an instant smile inducer.

Favourite lyric: Only time is ours, the rest we’ll just wait and see…
