Baïlèro (performed by Anna Caterina Antonacci and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales)

by Joseph Canteloube

I've started listening to Radio 3 in the mornings rather than the increasingly knuckle-dragging arguments on Today. Was awoken to this today, like something beamed down from heaven.

Midnight Lullaby

Midnight Lullaby

by Tom Waits

Never really got into Tom Waits, have decided to give him some proper time - starting from the beginning. "Dream of West Virginia, or of the British Isles 'Cause when you are dreaming, you see for miles and miles. When you are much older, remember when we sat At midnight on the windowsill, and had this little chat And dream..."

Bitch I'm Madonna (feat. Nicki Minaj)

by Madonna

Listened to the much-maligned at the time MDNA this evening (which stands up really well, better than many of the "cool" artists it was aping/was produced by). Haven't heard enough off the new one to give any judgement but this is an absolute crusher of a tune.Edit: Just read this was co-produced by Sophie along with Diplo, totally makes sense now.

Get Up Offa That Thing (LIVE)

Get Up Offa That Thing (LIVE)

by James Brown

I was a total James Brown obsessive in my late teens/early 20s - literally all I'd listen to (buy the Love Power Peace live album now if you've never heard it http://www.amazon.co.uk/Love-Power-Peace-Live-Paris/dp/B000001DWX). I've left him be for a few years but the recent flawed but hugely entertaining "Get On Up" biopic has got me listening again - a total genius. I'm currently a big fan of his "Minister of the New New Super Heavy Funk" period - enjoy the song and video. Youtube is a goldmine for peak JB.

Spirit In The Dark + Reprise (Live at Fillmore West 1971)

Spirit In The Dark + Reprise (Live at Fillmore West 1971)

by Aretha Franklin

From the 4-CD complete Live at Fillmore West 1971 boxset which features her entire 3 night run (the original album has a different version featuring a reprise with Ray Charles). Uploaded this myself and have stitched the reprise onto the end as it really kicks everything over the edge - can tell the band start cutting loose a little. Starts reasonably slow but stuff really begins to cook about the 3 minute mark, genuine grade A+ material - Aretha at her peak with one of the best soul/funk backing bands in the world (King Curtis on sax, Billy Preston on keys!); as good as it gets. PS: Originally uploaded a version from a different night but went for this as prefer the audience reaction before the reprise (about 6 minutes). Begging for an encore. I uploaded the other night's version onto Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXE5U24YviI
