John Mellencamp feat. India Arie – Peaceful World
I wasn’t going for some big new year message with this song, I just read an interview with John Mellencamp in Rolling Stone and was reminded of how good this was, so here it is. It doesn’t hurt that I think the lyric “It’s what you do and not what you say” is a good one to live by in the new year, but I’m not being all preachy. Enjoy the song and do what you will with the ideas in it.
Pentagram – Nocturne (MTV Unplugged Version)
We’re big fans of this song and this stripped-down, acoustic version is absolutely beautifully realised.
Opus Orange and Emy Reynolds – If You Want To Sing Out Sing Out (Cat Stevens cover)
Patrick Wolf – Bitten
I heard this song by British artist Patrick Wolf in a short film and his voice got my attention. I’ve explored some of his music since then and I’m intrigued by the modern use of orchestral elements in the songs.
Haerts – Wings
Cool, moody pop from Brooklyn.
