    Yes! Finally a chance to do a song I've been meaning to do for ages!

    (This was also going to be my next theme so grrrr)
    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    Here's a song by The Kills. Varying theories say this is a song is about giving up a drug or leaving a relationship. I imagine both are fairly similar feelings but the band have definitely dabbled so it's a drug song for me. Also one I've been meaning to do for ages.

    You can blame TCK and Sean for this one too, Jim.
    But from a different episode of the best damn radio podcast on the planet.
    These two guys introduced us to the best songwriter we never knew.
    Friends, Benjamin Tod.

    This is one of three U2 songs that fit this season, I might also be doing Running to Stand Still, Wire is a challenge I'm not taking on ;-).

    This is a rough and ready one take, based on Keith Richard's version. I'd only just got up so my voice is suitably hoarse for the blues. In the absence of hard drugs about the house the accompanying sketch is of a box of aspirin instead. Rock n Roll, baby

    Just jamming with different amp settings and this came out, another Rock 'n' Roll baby :-)

    I wanted to take a shot at playing harmonica on this so it would sound more like the original, but I only have a C harp and I can't sing this song in C.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    Last night, I Googled to check whether the lyric in "Dancing Barefoot" was "heroine" or "heroin". It was "heroine".
