Sunday Songs 02.01.11

The first Sunday Songs of 2011! There's not much "new" music on here, because that's not really how I roll. Bring on the old classics, I say! Here are three songs that have been particularly favoured on my iPod recently (and I have done A LOT of travelling on public transport over the last couple of weeks, so my iPod headphones have basically fused into my ears!).

♥ The Baseballs - Chasing Cars
I first heard of these guys after seeing this video linked on Tink in my Closet. I'm not a fan of a lot of the original songs they cover, but put them to a rockabilly tune and they instantly become favourites of mine! I've listened to this album incessantly over the last couple of months, and I hope they tour to Australia soon!  

♥ The Beatles - Hold Me Tight
Probably under the influence from The Baseballs, I've been listening to a lot of the early Beatles albums. With The Beatles is probably now my favourite Beatles album of all time, I love the rock & roll (well, 1950s rock & roll) influences on it. It makes me wish I'd been around when it was first released and I could play it on a jukebox while dancing around a diner... okay, so I'm pretty much imagining the diner scenes from Grease but a girl can dream, right?

♥ Madonna - Cherish
I am really digging vintage Madonna lately - forget all this jumping around in a leotard and thigh high boots madness. It may have been brought on by the fact that I recently rewatched the Madonna Glee episode, but no matter! I've never seen this video before (when I was in my watching-Rage-every-Saturday phase, it was more Beautiful Stranger, Frozen and Music) and I can't say that I totally understand why there are mermaids? Que?! Anyway. I quite like the 60s girl group feel of the song.


What songs are you into lately?
