- Slip In Mules - Sugar Pie DeSanto (this one went down espcially well)
- Red Shoes (The Angels Wanna Wear My) - Elvis Costello (plus a lovely cover by Hem)
- Red shoes edition - featuring Chris Rea, Tom Waits, Sawyer Brown, Elton John, Kate Bush, Throwing Muses and David Bowie
This week (my third as a contributor over there) there were more songs than ever that were on my shortlist, but that were posted by others before I got around to it...some seriously great tunes. But, as ever, there were still a few more. So, below are some tracks that I just didn't manage to fit in, and which nobody else posted either.
Boogie Shoes - K.C. and The Sunshine Band
Earth Boots - Galliano
Try Walking In My Shoes - Depeche Mode
I even considered Venus In Furs because of its "shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather"!
It has only just been decided that we can post 21st century tracks over there...previously, the rule was 20th century tracks only (with the odd naughty exception if you could give a good defense!), so here are some noughties songs that fit the 'footwear' theme:
Step On My Old Size Nines - Stereophonics
Eleanor Put Your Boots On - Franz Ferdinand
Dancing Shoes - Arctic Monkeys
Billy the Kid's Dream of the Magic Shoes - The Mountain Goats
Pretty Shoes - Jens Lekman
And, just to round things off, how about a couple of (decent) 'novelty' songs?
Nigel Planer as Neil Pye, the hippie from The Young Ones...fabulous stuff! (It helps if you are familiar with the character, however!).
Kinky Boots - Patrick MacNee and Honor Blackman
Honor Blackman holds the, ahem, honour of being the only octogenarian I would still 'do'! She is ridiculously hot...and still so classy and vivacious.
P.s. If anyone has an mp3 of Nick Heyward's song Rollerblade, please please please could you get in touch - I had that song on cassette single and loved it, but can't find it available anywhere now...I would love you forever! :o)
