My Top Ten tracks of the month!
SOS - ABBA (1975)
Marianna has discovered the wonder of ABBA. Or, as she calls them, 'Dancing Queen Songs'. SOS reached #6 in the UK in 1975, and is my personal ABBA fave.
Skeleton - Bim Skala Bim (1995)
Third wave ska band Bim Skala Bim released this as a single back in 1995.
Shoes - Jesse James (2000)
More ska with Jesse James. They were an awesome band but, guttingly, the only time I saw them live at Cardiff SU the sound system went screwy on them as soon as they started this one.
Ska Show - Reel Big Fish (2018)
They've still got it! I've seen RBF a few times and they're always great.
Fancy - Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX (2014)
Clueless was pretty much my favourite film as a pre-teen, and I still want to wear most of the outfits now. I'm basically blaming Fancy's take on it for the current 90s revival.
You'll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties - Jona Lewie (1980)
This Jona Lewie hit has been stuck in my head all week!
Foundations - Kate Nash (2007)
I love the video for Foundations. I even went and got my hair cut just like this on the back of it in 2007!
Head Over Heels - ABBA (1981)
ABBA's star was waning by the time Head Over Heels peaked at #25 in the UK charts - the first single not to break the Top 20 since I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do in 1975.
Where Have You Been? - Reel Big Fish (2002)
Sister Suffragette - Mary Poppins OST (2013)
Mary Poppins has been Marianna's film of choice for the last few weeks. Apparently Glynis Johns thought she had been signed to play Mary Poppins, so Disney had to hurriedly come up with a solo song for her to soften the blow!
