California Dreamin’ by The Mamas and the Papas

Stopped into a church I passed along the way.

Well, I got down on my knees (got down on my knees) And I pretend to pray (I pretend to pray)

Something in this song feels haunting to me. I can’t quite place my finger on it. It could be the way that each of their voices meets in that ethereal plane that few bands have managed to reach – a sound that I associate with the golden age of music, at least in my opinion.

I remember watching part of a film in college film studies called “Chungking Express“, which featured this song prominently. I never really paid attention to that film, but I can’t help but feel I should go back and watch it now I’m older and… wiser?

Far From Alive — Resident Evil 2 Rap

At first I thought that this would be a bit of a gimmick, but it has legit grown on me and is now in my regular playlist.

I am addicted to running around the world of Raccoon City in Resident Evil 2 and the recently-released Resident Evil 3 Remake.

I’m looking forward to any music that the same creator can bring from RE3’s world in the coming weeks / months.

More by The Sisters of Mercy

More — The Sisters of Mercy

Some people get by
With a little understanding
Some people get by
With a whole lot more

Lyrics by Jim Steinman

My first time hearing this song was in fact as a cover by Meat Loaf on his album Braver Than We Are. The song was actually written by Jim Steinman whose most well-known collaborator is Meat Loaf. And he has been known to reuse his songs for different artists over the years

Thieves in the Temple by Prince

Thieves in the temple music video — Prince

Love come quick
Love come in a hurry
There are thieves in the temple tonight

They don’t care where they kick
Just as long as they hurt you
There are thieves in the temple tonight

Sign of the Times (Prince Cover) by Muse

Muse cover Prince’s Sign of the Times.

A sister killed her baby ’cause she couldn’t afford to feed it
And yet we’re sending people to the moon
In September, my cousin tried reefer for the very first time
Now he’s doing horse, it’s June, unh

Lyrics from Sign of the Times

Possibly one of my favourite covers of any song I’ve heard. This is how covers should be done.

I remember hearing this for the first time in my first web development job. I was working for a small local company, whose office was the upstairs level of a converted barn.

Usually the radio — permanently fixed on Radio One — soon became tiresome for me as the same songs seemed to be played at the same time every damn day.

But one magical day I happened to hear the Live Lounge wear I heard Matt Belamy’s signature guitar sound riffing to a tune I recognised but could not name.

When I finally worked it out it hit me like a freight train.

This song is fucking incredible.
