Drifting
by Maverick Sabre
(6 plays) | (1 fan)

Written from the perspective of someone who’s always looking over their shoulder, fearing a bouncer who might check their bag for booze or a neighbour who might phone in a noise complaint to the guards, Drifting is a particularly brilliant snapshot into the day in the life of the idle and the lonely. Its striking La Haine-inspired music video by Hector Dockrill, which was filmed in Ballymun, bolsters the song’s message with Sabre saying that he aims “to tell as many different untold Irish stories within a grander film”. Both the song and the video capture the moments where we unwillingly lose control, leaving our fate in the care of something else. “We turn around and now we’re drifting . . .”

Temptation
by New Order
(17 plays) | (0 fans)

This was the first song the group produced themselves, splitting with Martin Hannett, who the band credit for teaching them the mechanics of recording. "Producing ourselves we get more satisfaction," frontman Bernard Sumner told The Face in 1983. "We know what we want and we can do it. With Martin the songs often turned out different, sometimes better, sometimes not."
