10 Songs: Monday, April 7th, 2014

Perfect McVie

Perfect McVie

1. I’d Rather Go Blind – Christine Perfect – Former Chicken Shack singer is to soul what Linda Thompson is to folk -perhaps the UKs greatest practitioner. Yes, this song is a cliche but it wasn’t when she covered it and this is among the best versions I’ve ever heard – A

2. Beat The Retreat – Richard And Linda Thompson – What a golden age for Richard – A

3. Don’t You Worry Child (feat John Martin) – Swedish House Mafia – Not bad but not serious – B

4. I Got U – Duke Dumont – A sonic beauty take on the Whitney Houston classic – A-

5. Your Bright Baby Blues – Sara Watkins and Sean Watkins – Stupendous cover of a classic song – A

6. II – Perfect Pussy – It is just possible that they peaked with their first EP – A

7. Too Much Heaven – Bee Gees – Masterful three part harmonies on disco ballad classic – A

8. Too Much Love – Bread – The definition of soft rock, it sounded great then sounded lousy and now sounds good again – B+

9. Wait A While – The Hold Steady – I guess it isn’t the worst song around but it isn’t very good – B-

10. Oh What A World – Rufus Wainwright – Superb self portrait, love that trombone – A
