Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

30 days of me meme.

Gacked from hils, 'cos it looks like it could be good fun and, who knows, might even get me posting on a daily basis.

So, without further ado:

Day 01 → Your favorite song
Well, ISTR I answered this in a Writer's Block thing a few days back. Honestly, I don't have such a thing as one favourite song above all others - my musical tastes are too diverse for that. I generally tend to get really into whatever I'm listening to at the moment...and then a few days later forget about it when something else comes along. For example, right now my current "thing" is re-transferring all my 7" singles to mp3 files, but this time making sure they're all 192 kbps and doing all the click removal and de-noising that I didn't do first time round. That can be quite fun for suddenly finding yourself listening to things you'd not properly listened to before. (IMO, Linda Ronstadt's Hurt so bad - the b-side of Don't Know Much - is a good little song, and her voice doesn't half sound like the much missed Laura Branigan...)

However, probably the one song I can never tire of hearing (good job too as I own it in many different formats and remixes; if it doesn't show up at least once when I put the iPod on random play, Something is Seriously Wrong...) is Always on my mind by Pet Shop Boys. I just love it. 22 years on, it still sounds as fresh and invigorating as ever, and that instrumental break is just fabulous.

And then on the 12" mix, you get bonus Joss Ackland. Seriously, who could ask for more?
