Under the Graveyard by Ozzy Osbourne

My favourite song from his new album, ‘Ordinary Man’.

Under the Graveyard

We’re all rotten bones

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.


Ladyhawke – Wild Things Video

I can’t express how much Ladyhawke’s music has grown on me in the short month since I discovered her.

The song “Wild Things” was immediately one of my favourites from her latest album of the same name.

I have just seen the music video for this song and it has somehow made me love the song even more. Such a powerful song, and powerful delivery, make this one of my all time favourite songs I think.


Fast Moving Cars by Carla dal Forno

This single, and indeed its accompanying song, “Better Yet”, is one of the nicest musical surprises I’ve had recently. I’d never heard of Carla Dal Forno before stumbling upon the song “Fast Moving Cars”.

The songs on here are so wonderfully bleak, especially “Better Yet”. I don’t know what it is about the atmosphere that these songs have, or what feelings they evoke, all I know is I can not wait for her debut album.


JUTRØ – Travva (voc. LINDA)

Dark, industrial, brooding and haunting. This song scares me – which probably has more to do with the accompanying video, but a great video it is.

It feels as though I am falling down into the abyss of hell when listening and to be honest, when I am listening to it, I’m happy to just keep falling.
