We All Get Hurt By Love

In 1994 Kylie went for some credibility- not that she needed it, everyone loved Kylie anyway- but she was fed up with feeling like a puppet in the SAW production line. Brothers In Rhythm were on board to provide some dance productions skills and she had signed to DeConstruction (then a pretty hip dance label). Confide In Me is a slow burner, opening with violin and piano. Sweeping Arabian strings and a didgeridoo join in with the indie-dance drums. Kylie does her thing.

Confide In Me (Master Mix)

I’ve posted this before but it’s worth a repost while I’m in Kylie territory, a Go Home Productions mash up of Kylie’s Slow and The Stone Roses’ Beggin’ You. Slow is a great, sultry pop song and was co-written by Emiliana Torrini, an Icelandic singer who has graced these pages before. It looks like The Stone Roses have called it a day again- the poor reception given to the two singles and Ian’s frustration with the others not wanting to do much work is one reason that was whispered about. Another is the ever present tension between Ian and Reni. To be frank, after the Etihad shows it looked done to me anyway. This mash up is good fun.
While I’m here, I always thought this 2010 single was a really good, classy piece of electro-pop too.

Speed Of Dark

Emiliana Torrini’s Speed Of Dark from last year’s album Tookah- slow, dreamy, soft focus, a touch of 80s electro-pop about it but modern too.

I think today is Christmas tree buying and decorating day.

Packing

We had friends round for tea and a couple of glasses of wine each and we’re now trying to pack to go on holiday tomorrow. And I’m mucking about on the internet.

I missed this absolute gem of a song and only discovered it by accident earlier today- from last year, Emiliana Torrini and Steve Mason, noisy and way up there. The noise, I’ve just discovered, is provided by Toy.

I Go Out

And this, a remix of Lana Del Rey’s Video Games by Dreadzone’s Greg Dread. Lovely.

Right. How many pairs of shorts do I need?

Speed Of Dark

Mr Weatherall’s been very busy recently, remixes pouring out hither and thither- another newbie can be found here. It’s a ten minute spacey job of Iceland’s Emiliana Torrini (and there’s a free download button too). Mid-tempo, chuggy, synth workout that goes on and on and on.

Picture spot- Raymond Poulidor, the best rider never to win the Tour de France. Eternally second.
