Dreaming Is Free

My favourite song of the week before last was a remix of an old song. It's Dreaming by Blondie. The remix is the Sub-Urban Dream Mix. Blondie have had so many amazing songs but Dreaming was previously never one that I listened to a lot maybe because it was a hit when I was a child and not a pop obsessed teenager when the song got to number 2 in the UK charts in 1979. Dreaming is almost 32 years old and I think the remix really does it justice. The other songs that I have liked in the past two weeks include the Grum remix of Bad Romance by Lady Gaga, Silver Lining by Hurts, Walking by Mary Mary and as ever I still haven't made up my mind on a new Britney song which is Till The World Ends.

Here's Blondie and the Sub-Urban Dream Remix of Dreaming.

Silver Lining

I bought Hurts album Happiness recently and it's v good indeed. I love all the singles. Several other songs could also be singles. There is also a hidden track a minute or so after the last song The Water which is well worth a listen too. The first track on the album is Silver Lining and it's 1986 all over again. Here it is.
