Playlist of the Week #1


After looking back on an old post about music, I’ve decided to start a regular weekly post: my Playlist of the Week. I’ll post videos of 3 songs that have been in my head in the last week for one reason or another.

  1. Coolio – Rolling with the Homies

Clueless was on the TV this week. Classic 90s film that I owned on VHS, and you can’t watch it and not walk around humming this afterwards. I’m pretty sure I’ve never heard this song the whole way through, or know any of the other words.

  1. Manic Street Preachers – You Love Us

The Manics played the 20th anniversary of The Holy Bible from Cardiff Castle on Friday, and it was live on TV for those of us who couldn’t be there. This isn’t my favourite Manics song, but (almost) closing the show with the national anthem and then You Love Us was pretty awesome. My dogs didn’t appreciate my tone deaf singing though! And if you’d prefer one with better audio, watch the official video.

  1. The Swinging Blue Jeans – Hippy Hippy Shakes

My best friend loves doing karaoke. But she isn’t great at picking songs, which is where I come in. I pick a few songs that she likes (Rihanna, Madonna, Blondie) but also use this opportunity to get some of my favourite rock and roll classics in there, so I can hear them on a night out, rather than just the latest chart drivel. I’m putting together a new CD for her, which only has 5 songs out of 22 that were released this side of the millennium. I hope she likes it.
