Hello and Happy Friday to you, dear reader.

Answer to last week’s song lyric quiz:
Title: West End Girls
Artist: The Pet Shop Boys
Title: Love Shack
Artist: The B-52’s
Album: Cosmic Thing
One of those songs that “everyone” knows and can’t help but sing along to.
Title: Help The Poor
Artist: B. B. King
Album: King of the Blues
Blues. Done by someone who LOVES it. That’s what makes the difference between what is good and what is great.
Title: The Shining
Artist: Badly Drawn Boy
Album: The Hour Of Bewilderbeast
A restful piece of music that I am more than happy to stick on repeat. It makes me melt.
Title: Hazy Shade Of Winter
Artist: The Bangles
Album: Less Than Zero
Girls with guitars and rocking out. It still sounds so good.
Title: Yentl Medley (Where Is It Written? / Papa, Can You Hear Me? / Will Someone Ever Look At Me That Way? / A Piece Of Sky)
Artist: Barbra Streisand
Album: The Concert
The music to the film Yentl is astounding. And Barbra can blow. This live rendition gives me shivers and has found me giving a private concert of my own whenever it is played. (Sorry, neighbours)
Title: Looks Like We Made It
Artist: Barry Manilow
Album: The Songs 1975-1990
Rousing and poignant.
Title: Sho’ You Right
Artist: Barry White
Album: The Collection
One of my very favourite Barry White songs. Gets me dancing around the room – even if I have to sit down to do so.
Title: Good Luck (feat. Lisa Kekaula)
Artist: Basement Jaxx
Album: Kish Kash
A powerful vocal over some quality beats. This song reminds me of fun times had with friends and has spent many years being part of my preparation routine for a night out.
Title: God Only Knows
Artist: The Beach Boys
Album: Pet Sounds
There’s just something about this track. The sunshine sounds and harmonies forever speak of summer to me.
Artist: Beastie Boys
Album: Hello Nasty
This one is just too much fun.
