Snow Police – Every Car You Chase

This has been kicking around for at least 2 months, but actually gathered enough steam to get airplay on mainstream terrestrial radio in the past few weeks…kind’ve weird hearing a mashup of this quality on mainstream.

Party Ben mashup of Every Breath You Take (Police) and Chasing Cars (Snow Patrol)

Artfully done, with two equally hypnotic tracks…two of my favorites at that.

Almost Song of the Week – Vega4

Well, I was going to make Vega4’s “Life is Beautiful” Song of the Week, but then Apple went and made it the iTunes Single of the Week in the US, (which is a dubious distinction given some of the company that you keep as iTunes Single of the Week…some really atrocious tracks have appeared ). So on principle I just can’t tag Vega4 this week, but will keep an eye on the band….

Nevertheless, this is a really nice piece reminiscent of Snow Patrol’s “Chasing Cars” which I love, and it is definitely worth the price of the free download on iTunes. The band has a very rich sound for a standard four piece set, and uses enough creative elements to make for really interesting singles.

Check out the band at their website: Vega4

p.s. OK so this weeks choice for song of the week was previously an iTunes Single of the Week, just not this weeks….

Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars

Okay, long time off.

Best mainstream musical experience I have had lately has been Snow Patrol’s latest album Eyes Open, especially the Top 40 track Chasing Cars which is hypnotic and yet has an emotional intensity which is uplifting. The whole album is listenable if not enjoyable, which doesn’t happen much these days, so try it out.
