Yes, it's time for the triumphant return of the Songs for Sunday game. The rules are simple: I'll leave you the ten songs most recently played on my mp3 player. You leave yours in the comment section. Then we compare songs and make fun of each other for those crappy songs that always seem to pop in any shuffle. *grins*

Here's mine:

  1. Magic Love - Bent
  2. On My Balcony - Flunk
  3. They - Jem
  4. I Beg Your Pardon - Kon Kan
  5. D.A.N.C.E. - Justice
  6. Bang Bang (Shot You Down) - Audio Bullies and Nancy Sinatra
  7. Technologic - Daft Punk
  8. History Repeating - Propellerhead featuring Shirley Bassey
  9. I See You Baby - Groove Armada and Grandma Funk
  10. Be Still My Heart - The Postal Service

All the songs are linked to their videos, but after the jump is one of the coolest videos of all time. What happens when you play good music at a Liverpool train station? The people dance!

By incredible coincidence, at Slammer in Fort Lauderdale just last week, I ran up to Tomas in the DJ booth and asked him what he was playing. "Nancy Sinatra". "Right, but what is the remix?" It turned out to be the one you reference, but you link to just a snippet of the song.

By the way, watch this

all the way through. It is important to see how Nancy gets off stage!!

Here's the link to the complete AudioBullys/Lee Cabrera remix:

Much to my chagrin, it is not available on itunes or amazon.

Thanks Tony! I've updated the link to include the full song on YouTube. There's no real video for it - but the entire song is there.

Hint: If you like the Nancy Sinatra remix, you'll probably love the Shirley Bassey one. I like it even better than Bang Bang.

Sorry folks, all old stuff, no known videos.

Hm. I just listened to "T'es OK, T'es Bath" by Ottawan, the obscure French Antilles disco duo from the late 70's, about 15 times. Does that count?

My husband lusted after her back then, and I lusted after her clothes and her boots! I like her version of this song much better than Cher's! Nancy is so typical of the 60's when I was a teenager!!!!
