Dusty's version of '24 Hours from Tulsa'

Gene Pitney sounded callous when he sang it but she was all heartbreak and sweet unease. How does that work?

I watched 'Django' last night and now my mental jukebox is just the theme song from 'Django', on repeat, forever.

Having seen this yesterday, I've gone from some Dusty to 'Some Dusty'...

Some unfeasible mash-up of Ash's 'Burn Baby Burn', Helen Love's 'Great in Formula One' and Piney Gir's 'Boston'. I'd make a shit DJ.

Oh.

Pulp's Sheffield : Sex city. Astonishingly I'd never heard this until sourcing a copy of Pulpintro a couple of weeks ago, but it's making up for lost time in my head with a vengeance. As, for that matter, is Stacks from the same compilation.

Rather more randomly, Toxygene by The Orb has also been paying a few return visits lately.

Currently rotating between Turning Japanese by The Vapours and Summer Gone by Autolight.

Autolight were a band in Birmingham 15 years ago. My old band played with them a few times. They had that Alexei Berrow who went on to be in Johnny Foreigner. He was ever so nice.

Turning Japanese seems to be playing every single time I turn on to BBC4.

That's in my head most of the time too. One of the best tunes ever, I reckon.

'Respect' by Erasure.

It's quite a well-made pop song (didn't someone do a nice acoustic cover of it?), but I always thought that bit of the video where the line "give a little respect to me" is accompanied by an image of somebody giving somebody else what looks like a little paperweight in the shape of the word 'respect' was symptomatic of the enduring and utter contempt in which the music industry holds its audience.

I know Wheatus had a big hit with it, and it also appeared on Bjorn Again's Erasure-ish EP. Of other versions, however, I know not. Anyone?

No, it rings a bell though doesn't it.

Bell, eh? Like Andy Bell, eh. Geddit?

Oh, I'll just go.

This is ALWAYS on my mental jukebox at the moment, but then it's always on my stereo too, so.

My MJB has had 'Disorder' by Joy Division on heavy rotation since it featured on Music for Misfits recently.

This has reminded me that 'Disorder' is my favourite Joy Division song by a hundred miles. It's pretty brilliant isn't it?



I liked Joyo when I first heard them (I mean obviously I did: I was young and disaffected), then went through quite a few years when I found them nigh on unlistenable. It's good to be able to go back now and find the good stuff. I guess being old and disaffected helps.

Same, though I've been resisting going back to them, even after enjoying hearing 'Disorder' on said programme. I listened to The Div a bit when I read Peter Hook's moany book about them a couple of years ago but still couldn't shift the memory of long teen days listening to "Closer" over and over again and thinking "Ian's singing about me, I know Ian better than them". Best left I think. Tis a shame though.
