Three song that have been earworming me lately:

Shaft in Africa – Johnny Pate

If this doesn’t get you wriggling and grooving around the room, then I’m sorry, but you have no ass.

I Take To You – Lena Horne

It's so bright and jaunty that you can hear the 1930s optimism just bouncing out of it. Then Hitler had to come along and ruin everything. Stupid Hitler!

It Doesn’t Matter Any More – Eva Cassidy

The original Buddy Holly version was a stupid, disposable and bizarrely perky 1950s breakup song. But this version by Eva Cassidy, based on an interpretation by Linda Ronstadt, actually feels like a song of heartbreak and loss. You can feel the awful, resigned sadness drifting out of it.
