because it's Tuesday - week of June 27

I'm not going to say much about this, there isn't much to say about the super-spectacular Eurythmics or The Beatles that hasn't been said before.

Just going to leave this here for you to enjoy xo

because it's Tuesday - week of June 20

I have always loved songs that tell a story.  This is probably because I grew up in the 1970's listening to a lot of country music.  Townes Van Zandt's "Pancho and Lefty" has been covered by many many musicians over the years.  I had a lot of fun listening to different versions of it and was struck by how beautiful Frank Turner's version is.  His voice is really lovely with just a little bit of grit around the edges, sort of perfect for "Pancho and Lefty" I think.

Do you agree? Give it a listen and let me know xo

Wilco has been one of my very very favourite bands for a very very long time now.  I also deeply love Nick Lowe and have for as long as I can remember.  This particular song has been covered and covered and covered. It's such a great, solid, song though that I don't think I've ever heard a version of it that I didn't like.

Wilco's treatment is just fantastic.  Enjoy xo

Ian Tyson has written some pretty amazing songs, Summer Wages is just one of them.

I think that Matt and Jill Barber's version of it, from their beautiful record "The Family Album" is pretty amazing too.

Have a listen and just TRY not to tap your toe, I dare you!! xo
