Well, hello there, Fri-Yay!
It’s time to bring up the tempo a little from yesterday’s ambient piece since it’s the weekend for many of you (and a long Thanksgiving weekend for those of you south of the Canada/USA border). So, let’s go!
This morning, I listened to Shaun Keaveny’s early Friday afternoon (in the UK) program on BBC 6 Music. He played quite a few tracks I hadn’t heard before, and many that I liked and “Shazamed.”
One song in particular that caught my ear was The Bluetones playing “Bluetonic,” the title track from a 2017 live album. The song is originally from their 1996 debut studio album, Expecting to Fly, released three years after they formed in Hounslow (near Heathrow Airport), Greater London, England. I rather like the live version song as it sounds like the audience is singing along with lead vocalist Mark Morriss at the beginning. (By the way, if you are looking for the song in the iTunes Store, it correctly shows as being on the Bluetonic album, but the four-minute, two-second track is misidentified as “Bluetones.”)
The song is definitely high-energy and upbeat, a great way to start off a Friday evening.
Now you know a little about why this is my song of the day for today. Thanks for joining me here, and please enjoy… and have a great weekend!
Here’s the video for the song from The Bluetones’ YouTube topic channel:
