One of the things I love most about Spotify is that I feel like I am always discovering new to me artists, either through the related artists section or because I am willing to give a musician “a go” whereas previously I might not have bought an album. I say new to me because the artists I’m discovering aren’t always new to everyone; in fact, some have been around for years but they have passed me by.
This weekend we were away, doing all types of Halloween-y things, including dancing one too many times to The Time Warp and Monster Mash. It was fun though and, at first I was going to share one of these songs with you today. Then, yesterday, whilst carving pumpkins and talking ghosts I started singing Ghost Town by The Specials. And now it’s stuck in my head and I can’t get it out. I know technically it’s not a spooky song (given it’s about how crappy life was in the late 70’s if you were unemployed in Britain – though maybe that makes it a scary song?) but it’s got ghost in the title so it fits – kind of – with the season….
