tift meritt - are you still in love with me

From her Bramble Rose LP. Tift's latest Tambourine is good, but for me it lacks the sucker punch that this track (a a couple of others on Bramble Rose) have.

Listen: Tift Meritt - are you still in love with me?

Buy: Bramble Rose and/or Tambourine

brel - ne me quitte pas

At the suggestion of my sister, an attempt to carry on that torch song theme just a while longer.

Jacques Brel - Ne me quitte pas

Scott Walker - If you go away

What cheery souls we are.

Buy Brel - Infiniment

Buy Scott3 (what do you mean, you don't own it?)

Maybe (OK, fairly definitely) some steel guitars next time.

fistful of love

Sometime back in December, a music blog posted this track by antony and the johnsons - I listened to it over and over again on repeat, then went and got the album. I've lost track just lately of pretty much everything, so if it was you that posted it thanks, and for the rest of you - one more time now:

Antony and the johnsons - fistful of love

Buy I am a bird now
