Favourite Song: Spoon ‘Do You’ – yes, I do

One secret effect a really good popsong has to have on people is the need to push the repeat button. A good popsong is nice and enjoyable whenever you happen to hear it but a really good popsong simply slips into your subconscious and urges you to listen again and again.

The new single by “Spoon” – once again a marvelous recommendation by the great J. Hubner – is such a repeatable summer miracle, an essentially very 90s sounding alt-song that has a little retro-vibe in its flowery chorus (which is the kind of chorus that the Stereophonics came close to a few times in their career but never quite managed as effortlessly as Spoon do) and you can even sing endless rows of “duh duh duh duh” and “aahaahaah” and “huhuhu” and “mhm mhm” – I am actually wondering how deliberate the sheer amount of “doahmhms” is and if so, love the humor behind that decision.

Keep an eye out on John’s blog because when the new album comes out in August, I am sure he’ll write a few and a few more kind words about it.
