Los Angeles’ finest pop kids have got great taste in tunes
We’ve got a special treat for you to kick off the New Year in style. Do you know Saint Motel? You’re not sure? Well, you might not know the band’s name, but we can guarantee that you’ll know this song:
That song is catchy as hell, isn’t it
You like that song? Yeah, we do too. That’s why we asked Saint Motel to put together a playlist of their favourite songs, exclusively for the listening pleasure of you lovely lot. It’s a pretty great playlist, if we do say so ourselves; you can find it at the bottom of the page. For now, though, here’s Saint Motel telling you a bit about a few of the songs they picked:
RJD2 – Good Times Roll Pt. 2
‘This song is an amazing blend of different feels. Soul, funk, hip hop blending together so nicely… It’s a good song for nearly any occasion.
Jonathan Richman – Egyptian Reggae
‘What does Egyptian Reggae sound like? This. Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers nailed it 100%. Such a wonderfully unique song title.
Tom Jones – She’s A Lady
‘Sexy, classy, and joyous as hell. I wish Tom Jones made forever more records in this vein. His ballads are great as well, but this upbeat sexy music is so perfect.
Brian Eno – Fickle Sun (iii) I’m Set Free
‘An amazing cover of a Velvet Underground classic. One legend covering another – what could go wrong?!
Burt Bacharach – Make It Easy On Yourself
‘What a mood creator. His songs take you on a journey. Very excited to see him play when he comes to Los Angeles this year.
