Weekly New Wonders Playlist #4 of 2023

Time for the WEEKLY NEW WONDERS PLAYLIST featuring the finest songs we’ve heard over recent days. These 13 tracks that follow are beautifully rockin’, magnificently sad, and oozing with melody. For the record, I’m one of those weirdos who thinks 13 is not a demonic number and is actually pretty cool. Oh, I used to be superstitious, in fact up until about a year ago if my daily commute playlist totaled 13 songs I would add or subtract one so as not to tempt fate. As an aside, I make a playlist every morning the contents of which are determined by my mood and general level of optimism that day which is usually sea level or lower, though I still don’t ever, ever put The Blue Nile in the AM playlist or else I fall into instant emo-ness and start to get misty wherever I happen to be standing so no “Let’s Go Out Tonight” for me unless I’m out of the public eye. Of course, if you feel like crying/cleansing your soul, don’t let me stop you and please have at it here. So anyways, my brain chemistry has shifted in some inexplicable way over the past year and the maligned and shunned 13 has become the track number I shoot for when assembling my daily playlist.

And with that, come now enjoy this devilishly seductive group of new wonders…and all hail the mighty 13.

    Looking forward to the new tunes. And I find “A Walk Across The Rooftops” and “Tinseltown Is In The Rain” perfect commute songs! Particularly wonderful on a dark morning, really sets the mood. Blue Nile/Paul Buchanan need a feature to be written. Just saying……
    All the best,

    I’d forgotten about that Cover Me item (getting old and forgetful)… I even commented at the time! Thanks for the reminder – it’s a great read and some excellent covers. Lots of love for Hats, and thats obviously how things should be. But Rooftops just pips Hats for me. I was working in a record store in Edinburgh when Rooftops came out, and that was my soundtrack for the next year (at least). A very Scottish album. And then the long wait for Hats. I had the promotional Hats cd that came in a small hat box, I’d forgotten all about that. Try ” I Love This Life” on your commute – very ’80’s and dare I say it – Hopeful!
