Song of the Day - April 10, 2006

The musical invasion continues from all fronts. The Canadians have done it again with The Meligrove Band's Planets Conspire. The album is chock full of good tunes, so many in fact that it is hard to find a favorite. There is a shadow of the 70's hanging over the album, especially from Bowie. However, I also detect a fondness for The Cure. The opening track "Isle of Yew" shows its 70's influences with a somewhat toned down Robert Plant vocal stylings. "Our Love Will Make the World Go Round" combines the current jangly guitar style with Bowie circa 1970, while "Planets Conspire" with its rhythmic keyboards pounds into your skull. Song of the day honors go to "Everyone's A Winner," which starts out with a Beatles' style solo piano and vocal intro, only to erupt into an indie pop classic with driving drums, nonsensical chorus, beautiful harmonies and of course a guitar solo. The song just forces you to dance. Click here to listen.
