Old glories and recent favorites for your ears to enjoy
Restrictions are back in Italy and, very likely, we’re going to spend our Easter holidays at home. The thought is not encouraging, but we have to bite the bullet and see “the big picture”. Between one Zoom meeting and another, we have to keep our fitness apps and baking video tutorials ready. Last but not least, music is a huge consolation to calm or thrill our hearts, while we picture in our minds the end of this pandemic. Here’s some stuff I’ve been listening recently: this Mid March Playlist includes classic tunes and recent favorites. Enjoy.
Teddy – Body and Soul
Teddy Geiger’s latest album, LillyAnna, received widespread critical acclaim: Body and Soul is one of her catchy rock-pop tunes that somehow reminds me of The Strokes.
Digitalism – Idealistic
An electro gem by German dance-punk duo Digitalism, just to fill the void left by Daft Punk’s split.
La Femme – Foutre Le Bourdel
Before the end of 2020 I had no idea who these guys from France were but, thanks to YouTube’s suggestions, I do now. I dare you resist to Foutre Le Bourdel by La Femme.
Paul Jones – Free Me
I saw the film The Gentlemen and I’ve been obsessed with this Paul Jones song ever since.
Peter Gabriel – In Your Eyes
The pandemic increased my longing for music from the past. I’ve been listening to Peter Gabriel’s In Your Eyes many times. I mean too many times.
Dua Lipa feat. DaBaby – Levitating
In these difficult times you need some Dua Lipa on your playlist. Levitating is one of my recent disco-pop favorites.
The Weeknd – Save Your Tears
There’s not only Blinding Lights so, if you like The Weeknd’s recent 80s tinged songs, you’re going to love Save Your Tears.
Willow Robinson – Feeling Good (Electric)
A fantastic rendition for solo voice and electric guitar of Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse’s classic.
