The Beat – Save it for later
The Beat are an English band who came to prominence in the late 70’s and early 80’s. I don’t know too much about them or any more of their stuff beyond this song. But what a song it is, with a perfect early 80’s sound. I especially like the intro.
Penny and The Quarters – You and me
I came across this track when watching Blue Valentine
recently. (Is it just me or does Ryan Gosling seem to be pretty much ubiquitous these days?) This song features prominently in the movie, which was very enjoyable if a little sombre. However, this track stole the show for me, I couldn’t get it out of my head for days afterwards, it’s just so darn catchy.
