OMD “If You Want It”
from History of Modern (Blue Noise Limited 2010) N —Nice comeback! They try some new twists (successfully) as well as gettin' all Weekend at Bernie's with John Hughes.
The Autumn Defense “Don't Know”
from Once Around (Yep Roc Records 2010) N —It's so simple, yet maybe the saddest line in any song released this year: "I won't know where you are anymore." Doesn't hurt that it's a gorgeous melody either.
Jimmy Smith “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”
from Christmas Cookin' (Verve 1992) —I misspoke on the air: This was released at PRECISELY the right time to soundtrack a gloriously f**ked-up Christmas party at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce!
He Said “A.B.C. Dicks Love”
from Take + Care (Enigma 1989) —VERY much a Wire Mk. II side project, courtesy Lugubrious Lewis.
