Breadcrumbs dropped on music wanderings.

  1. O~r~d~e~r~~~C~o~m~p~l~e~t~e

  2. Easy Way Out Roy Orbison

    This one’s not from the soundtrack, and by a singer that’s done lots of songs I like, but this was a nice surprise! Especially that cover, though the album title got my attention too.

    The rest of the record’s a bit dull, but. I wanted him to do a full disco record :(

  3. Fly Too High Janis Ian

    Again! This is from the Foxes soundtrack, and by a singer who has mostly boring songs, and it’s amazing.

    There are clips on Youtube, but they didn’t really seem worth posting.

  4. Bad Love Cher

    Kinda in the same boat here as the Marcia Hines entry; probably the only song of Cher’s I actually like, so it was nice to stumble onto it. Cher wrote it, too!

    This is from the soundtrack to a film called Foxes, which has another few great songs on there, and was produced by Giorgio Moroder.

    Maybe it feels a bit too similar to some other songs (Looking For Some Hot Stuff), but it’s soooo good anyway.

  5. Your Love Still Brings Me To My Knees Marcia Hines

    I really like Marcia’s voice, you can really hear that she’s smiling when she sings this. Unfortunately most of her other song choices aren’t really my thing.

    Sorry about the soft audio, the other vids on youtube are a different version.

  6. Heaven Knows Donna Summer

    Had to replace an item in a Discogs order, so ended up trawling through thousands of listings looking for singles. Listened to a bunch of things I hadn’t heard before, and this is one of the highlights. Total sucker for these kinds of disco songs that build up to a big swirling chorus.

    This is performed with a group called Brooklyn Dream, but I didn’t think much of the rest of their stuff.

  8. 深呼吸して Marina Watanabe

    Amazing set.

    Also with Shizuka Kudo and Akiko Ikuina from Onyanko Club. I don’t think Marina Watanabe was in that group (but I’m no expert), so dunno what the deal is there.

  9. Girls on the Roof Minayo Watanabe

    Ah! Girls on the roof!

    Continuing where I left off.
