More Spotify

I like the fact I can now link to almost any track I can think of from here through Spotify.

Join if you're not in already and dig Elan Mehler's lovely Christina's Song (if you want to get your heart-rate down, that is). Then try the slightly overlooked 80s act, The Woodentops 'So Good Today' and follow it with a spot of downbeat house from A Guy Called Gerald - Humanity.

Then nip over to some early Human League - Black Hit of Space and - in a similar vein, Kraftwerk's Pocket Calculator.

All a bit anti-septic so far? Then how about Thee Milkshakes 'You Got Me Girl' and Lou Reed's Romeo Had Juliet from his not-bad New York comeback LP. Then switch over to some country from Dwight Yoakam - It Won't Hurt and Emmylou with Luxury Liner. Then demand some justice along with Johnny Cash singing The Man in Black ('till things get brighter) or Bruce's Johnny 99. Then there's Martin Stephenson & the Daintees Running Water and Damian Dempsey's St Patrick's Day and Mary Coughlan's Double Cross.

But that's enough soul-free time. Here's Roy Ayers 'We Live in Brooklyn Baby' and Red Black and Green and then some sleazy Ohio Players Sweet Sticky Thing followed by Dr John's What Goes Around Comes Around.

Finish off with beats from Nuyorican Soul Habriendo El Dominate, Positive Vibration by Bob Marley and finally, The Only Woman DJ With Degree from the great Sister Nancy (for some reason, her version of Bam Bam isn't online).

Great choice of songs Paulie. I have become a fan of Spotify. It's a great way to check out music without a pun in the dark at Amazon
