Artist: Mark Ronson & The Business Intl Track: The Bike Song Release: Out Now Label: Columbia
I'm addicted to this tune at the moment. When I first heard it on the radio I did the "Who is this?" thing and they didn't say at the end, so I looked it up straight away and found out it was Mark Ronson. I was surprised as it's quite a different sound to what he normally does! He is taking it onto the next level! So thanks to Mark and The Business Intl! Loving it!
Artist: Marvin Gaye Album: Here, My Dear Release: 1978 Label: Tamla
I have just fallen in love with the Marvin Gaye album Here, My Dear. My friend George introduced it to me and it's one of Marvin's least successful records but the soul in it is incredible. When he got divorced from his wife the deal in the settlement was that all the profits of his next album would go to her. So he wrote the whole album about the love and anger and feelings he went through. It can be a difficult listen because of the intense emotions, but you don't get more real than that. And the melodies are supernatural!
Artist:The Pharcyde Track: Drop Release: 1996 Label: Polydor Group
My favourite video is Drop - The Pharcyde. I think they learnt the whole song backwards and they must have had to do each scene in one take. It's amazing. I love the way they move...it gets me giggling every time. And the way they jump up. My favourite part is the drawing. They got very creative!
I am going to feature my beautiful band, I call them "The Doodelittles". We have been working super hard in the past months and they have been incredible. They aren't only super talented musicians but loverlee people too! It's nice to know that we can spend an unnatural amount of time together and still get on, well sort of, heehee! I also want to mention the troopers, Jim Carmichael, Matt Randall and Kim Lewis cos they deserve to be featured just as much! My whole live team have supernatural powers!
