You know how sometimes a song just pops into your head and you have no idea why? I know that I once found Madonna’s Papa Don’t Preach playing on my internal jukebox for a whole day, with no obvious explanation: that was a pretty bad day.
Anyway, I was just sitting here and started humming a song to myself (what can I say, the cat’s conversational skills are limited). It was a song that was used in a great British Airways ad a while back and I’d never gotten round to finding out the name of the song or the band, though I knew it well as it’s a staple of classic rock stations round the world.Well, after chucking the one line I could remember (“we’ve got to get together sooner or later”) through Google, I found that the song in question was Something In The Air by Thunderclap Newman (a Pete Townshend side project apparently).
That’s it really – it’s a great song and I hope that it adds to your Sunday evening entertainment. And to go with it, why not check out Ooh La La, a classic by the Rod Stewart era Faces (though it was actually Rolling Stone to be Ronnie Wood singing rather than Stewart). For some reason I always associate Ooh La La with Something In The Air. I’ve no idea why, but I just do.
