Best of 2007, Pt. 3

December 29, 2007

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings – 100 Days, 100 Nights
Old-fashioned ’60s soul music created in the here and now. Amy Winehouse used the Dap-Kings as her backing band at one time. This is time travel music.

Pink Martini – Sympathique
I remember just enough French from college to be able to sing along with this poppy little song.

Blossom Dearie – A Fine Spring Morning
Simply a pretty song.

Louis Prima – Buona Sera
His very best, as far as I’m concerned. If you like swing, take this.

The Sweet – Wig Wam Bam
The Sweet – Funny Funny
’70s bubblegum heaven. Warning: also earworms. You’ll never really get these out of your head. For the rest of your life.

Pelle Carlson – Clever Girls Like Clever Boys Much More Than Clever Boys Like Clever Girls
I’m pretty sure I found this over at The Clap, a music community where the only songs that may be posted are songs with hand claps. I fell hard for this one.

Mark Ronson & Amy Winehouse – Valerie
More addictive even than most tracks on Back To Black.

Edith Piaf – La Vie En Rose
I’m finding myself more and more interested in both popular music from the early 20th century, and French popular music, and this would be the most well-known intersection.
