Somebody Up There Likes You
This should put a spring in your step on a Monday. Jackie Wilson is the man responsible for my favourite northern song of all time. "Somebody" may not be in the same league as Because of You bit it is a cracking, joyous bit of music none the less. I think that originally this track was only released as a 7" on MCA in Germany on the flip of Higher and Higher. My copy as with quite a few others comes courtesy of the Outta Sight repress from 2012. Thank god for this Castle subsidiary as if it wasn't for them a lot of essential northern tunes would be way out of my price range.
