Big Audio Dynamite — The Bottom Line
This song popped into my head during the ride to the airport on Saturday (a certain section of the lyric, especially ;-)), so I thought I'd share it here today. It's very 1980s, so consider yourself warned.
Wilco — Muzzle of Bees
This is from "A Ghost Is Born", their new album which will be released in June. Thank goodness for Internet leaks…
Morrissey — Irish Blood, English Heart
I think this has been released to radio now, but I can't seem to find a proper version at the moment, so here's a live version instead. I suppose it's a thinly veiled response to the NME's "Union Jack" angle of the past ten years, but I also think it fits alongside Dexy's "My National Pride" as an examination of the struggle between English and Irish identities. Or it might just be a fun pop song.
