Missed my music post last week, but I don't think anyone else missed it.

Anyway, I'd mentioned Joyeux Noël and how it reminded me of The Farm and the song off their Spartacus CD/album. The Farm were one of those bands that kind of got lost in the so called Madchester shuffle. Let's see, about that time The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, Inspiral Carpets, 808 State, yada yada yada. As a result, not that many people have heard of them. Yes, they had a fairly big hit in Groovy Train (the version provided here is from a compilation...not as dance-like, but I like it just as well). There were other songs on Spartacus that I liked quite a bit as well, which leads me to All Together Now. All Together Now, like Joyeux Noël, has the Christmas truce from World War I as its backdrop. The song is pretty relevant now, as well, as I now reread the lyrics.

Sadly, while I once had a copy of their Love See No Colour CD, which had a fair cover of The Human League's Don't You Want Me, I've since pawned or lent it out. I wouldn't mind getting that song again, but who knows when I'll get around to really looking for it. I'm taking a guess that Shake Some Action on Hullabaloo is a cover. I don't think ANYONE bought that CD, though.

That Thing You Do! is one of those movies I usually watch even just a little bit of whenever it's on. The Wonders doing All My Only Dreams. Bah...I thought this was one of the songs that was done by Fountains of Wayne. Still like it nonetheless. And yes, I AM listening to Freddy Fredrickson...

Lastly, House of Pain's Top O' the Morning to Ya, 'cause it seems fitting and EVERYBODY has Jump Around, right? This one was on the Daredevil soundtrack, though it wasn't nearly enough to save that poor movie, you know? Or, if you don't want it to associate it with the DD taint, it's originally from the House of Pain CD.

Hope you enjoy 'em!

Oh, by the way, happy birthday fireandsmoke!
