The first of what would turn out to be five compilations Ian Broudie released from 1996 to 2006. Pure, The Lightning Seeds' first release by Virgin, is almost a reissue rather than a compilation, since it consists of all but three of the songs released by Epic on the first two albums, Cloudcuckooland from 1990 and Sense from 1992. https://bit.ly/3IeED8s

Say My Name
by Godford

The mysterious Parisian-based producer writes on their Bandcamp: "I'm in the middle of that bridge between innocent romantic and rave. I don't want to choose between those two feelings. Music in general is a non-binary place where everyone can express their deepest feelings." https://bit.ly/3rEytZg

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
by The Beatles
(26 plays) | (0 fans)

Although the title was widely perceived to be a coded reference to LSD, "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" in fact took its name from a drawing of a schoolfriend by the four-year-old Julian Lennon. John Lennon revealed, "I had no idea it spelt LSD. This is the truth: my son came home with a drawing and showed me this strange-looking woman flying around. I said, 'What is it?' and he said, 'It’s Lucy in the sky with diamonds,' and I thought, 'That’s beautiful.' I immediately wrote a song about it." https://bit.ly/3oqUI3f

Much of the album was inspired by Styles's relationship with model Camille Rowe. During the recording Styles was inspired by David Bowie, Van Morrison, Paul McCartney and Joni Mitchell. The latter's album Blue (1971) and its use of the dulcimer, particularly influenced the album's musical style. Styles tracked down the woman who built the dulcimer used in Mitchell's album and requested lessons; she would go on to build Styles his own dulcimer which was used during the album's recording. Styles used "mushrooms" during the recording process. https://bit.ly/3DkGXav

"We wanted to come up with the most extreme, ridiculously heavy-metal title that we could," the band's chief songwriter, Martin Gore, told NME when 'Violator' was released. "I'll be surprised if people will get the joke." Read why Depeche Mode is one of heavy metal's biggest influences: https://bit.ly/2Vle4uP.

From London-based artist TSHA, "Power" was written "with clubs in mind, in the midst of the pandemic, with a dream to play it out [and] have a proper dance again. It’s been such an amazing feeling to see your reactions to the track." https://bit.ly/3IcnIn0

The song is performed in the key of G♯ minor in common time with a tempo of 90 beats per minute. The lyrics address those who doubted Eve's ability to maintain mainstream popularity. The video won the 2001 MTV Video Music Award for Best Female Video, and it was also nominated for Best Hip-Hop Video, losing to Outkast's "Ms. Jackson." https://bit.ly/3rwNKLG

I Love You I Hate You

"Inflo asked me, 'What do you love and what do you hate?' "I knew the answer immediately. I wanted to just let people know like, 'Yo, I’m actually this way inclined, being this introverted person that has all these crazy thoughts and ideas and theories in my head and not always feeling like I’m able to express it if it’s not through my art.'" https://youtu.be/ynoR0zEdMe4 https://www.littlesimz.com/
