Song of the Week: November
Last month I included Twist & Shout, you know, that kinda famous track by The Beatles. Turns out, that was my first Beatles song to appear in these Song of the Week installments, a grievous blunder to have left it so long.
This got me thinking about other absentees I’d forgotten to mention along the way. Radiohead and The Stone Roses were two glaring omissions, hence their inclusion here.
In other news, Congratulations to Benjamin Clementine for winning the illustrious Mercury Prize. I’ll be honest, I hadn’t heard of him until he won the award but I’m happy I have now. His jazzy voice, alongside the front-and-centre piano, creates Nina Simone with a dash of Adele-esque ballads.
Radiohead – Bulletproof (I Wish I Was)
Grimes – REALiTi
Benjamin Clementine – Cornerstone
Stone Roses – Waterfall
