"Give me a smile. Things aren't that bad, are they?"

Two great songs with a common title today: In Your Life.

In Your Life #1 is by hip-hop(ish) duo Day One, but this song is far more pop than hip hop. It's a very sweet, laid-back ditty which grabbed me from the very first second I heard it. Day One are Phelim and Donni from Bristol and were signed to Massive Attack's Melankolic label for their debut album, Ordinary Man, in 2000.

In Your Life #2 comes courtesy of American Music Club frontman Mark Eitzel. Taken from the album 'West' in 1997, this song is similar to the previous one in that it's about being around through tough times and it's really rather good. Judge for yourself.

Amazing to get two completely different songs like that, both with the same title, both released around the same time and both utterly brilliant!
