As part of my ongoing effort to improve the range of my cultural consumption, I'm casting out for new things to listen to. Part one and an explanation of this musical escapade can be found here. You'll need to search for the rest yourselves.
Saturday morning Rage is back! It's back, hooray! And they're mixing up these great contemporary stuff with older hits. I feel like I'm 10 again. This week's double list comes from this morning's playlist - minus the well-worn favourites.
251. The Kooks - 'Junk of the Heart (Happy)'.
252. Snow Patrol - 'Called out in the Dark' - could have sworn that was Mika at the start but my knowledge of skinny, dark-haired singers is obviously woeful.
253. Calvin Harris - 'Feel so Close'.
254. Emeli Sand - 'Heaven'
255. Noel Gallagher's High-Flying Birds - 'The Death of You and Me'
256. Oasis - 'The Importance of Being Idle' - Great video with Rhys Ifans.
257. Florence and the Machine - 'What the Water Gave Me' - Her voice is mesmerising as always.
258. Joe Goddard feat. Valentina - 'Gabriel'.
259. Example - 'Stay Awake'
260. Example - 'Changed the Way You Kiss Me' - Love the title more than the song itself.
261. Simple Plan feat. Rivers Cuomo - 'Can't Keep My Hands Off You'.
262. Taylor Swift - 'Sparks Fly'.
263. Avalanche City - 'Love Love Love' sweet little song.
264. Marvin Priest feat. Wynter Gordan - 'Take Me Away' - eh. Sounds like so many others.
265. The Trouble with Templeton - 'Bleeders'.
266. The Paper Kites - 'Bloom' - okay, this wasn't on the list but linked from somewhere else. Couldn't resist. This is lovely.
267. Hot Chelle Rae - 'Tonight Tonight'
268. LMFAO feat. Lauren Bennett & GoonRock - 'Party Rock Anthem' - so catchy... and the bubs was jumping when I played it with the laptop on my lap.
269. These Kids Wear Crowns - 'Jumpstart'.
270. Kimbra - 'Good Intent' - God, she's good.
