The Wine Song
Cat Empire: Cat Empire
Jazz/hip-hop/latin/pop. The most danceable band on the planet. In the extremely unlikely event of my getting married, "The Wine Song" would be the wedding waltz.
Iva Davies: Ghost of Time
The orchestral extension of the Icehouse track "Great Southern Land", written by Iva for the 1999/2000 Sydney "Millenium" celebrations. For some reason I find it completely addictive and keep coming back to listen. OK, so there is that small factor of my being an obsessive Iva Davies fan :). In all honesty, though, he's actually a very good film music composer - he was lately responsible, with Richard Tognetti from the Australian Chamber Orchestra, for the soundtrack to "Master and Commander".
The Stolen Child
The Waterboys: Fisherman's Blues
The Waterboys blend folk and rock with SUCH lovely accents and then fling in a bog-standard celtic story about children being taken away by the wee folk. Love it.
I like change.
