Song of the Day

Blimey o'reilly guv. As if all those Presidential coincidences the other day weren't spooky enough (see previous post), just as I'm about to post a track from Silence Is Wild, the new album by the Kate Bush-inspired Frida Hyvönen, I see Davy from The Ghost of Electricity has written a post on la Bush herself, this very morning. Not only that but the track he's posted is December Will Be Magic Again; while there just so happens to be a song entitled December on Ms Hyvönen's new album. What can it all mean?

That's where the similarities end, mind, as, unlike Kate's sanguine take on the year's final month, Frida's December basically involves a far from fun-packed trip to the abortion clinic. Oh dear.

I'm not going to put that song up here, good as it is, as you're probably depressed enough already, it being a Monday and all. So instead here's the brilliant Dirty Dancing, in which our Frida gets all nostalgic about a childhood friendship with a boy called Jimmy, who she's just met again as an adult.

Silence Is Wild is utterly fantastic. Buy it here.

So instead we can get all cheerful about Patrick Swayze and pancreatic cancer :)
