What's In Yir Box? G

To be honest with you the Gs aren't really that interesting on first look but all of them blew me away at one time or another and I still get goosepimples every time I play the Marvin Gaye single which is quite, quite beautiful.

It is quite interesting that every single has already featured on the blog, so it's difficult to pick one to post but I haven't played the Guillemots for quite a while. It is one of those singles that if you didn't know the subject matter you would think was just another upbeat pop song.

Marvin Gaye - His Eye Is On The Sparrow
Glasvegas- Daddy's Gone/Flowers And Football Tops
Glasvegas - It's My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Want To Cry
The Go Team - Ladyflash
Goldfrapp - A&E
Goodbye Mr McKenzie - The Rattler
Guillemots - Trains To Brazil

Guillemots - Trains To Brazil

Well, now that you've brought it up -- what IS the subject matter?

Apparently Fyfe Dangerfield wrote the song sometime after the terrorist attacks in New York but didn't do anything with it but after the London bus and tube bombings an the murder of Jean Charles de Menezes the band decided to release the song as now they had the title Trains To Brazil

I'd have slipped in ...

Peter Gabriel - Don't Give Up
Glitter Band - Goodbye My Love
Steve Gibbons - Tulane
Georgia Satellites - Battleship Chains

Would've considered a dalliance with Crystal Gayle - but that's another story.
Unlikely that Genesis would have featured.
