Sunday Breakfast Show: 2 To Soothe – September 2019

What a busy month September seemed to be.  But if you ask me what I got up to, I probably couldn’t tell you!

What I can tell you are the 10 songs that I played over the 5 Sunday mornings that were specifically designed to soothe you, my dear listeners.

They were –

Terry Hall – Take It Forever

Diana Ross & Lionel Richie – Endless Love

Cousteau – She Don’t Hear Your Prayer

Sia – Breath Me

The Beautiful South – A Little Time

My Life Story – The One

Carole King – So Far Away

Spandau Ballet – True

Sam Smith – Lay Me Down

Goldfrapp – A&E

And my chosen video this week.  It could only be the brilliant A Little Time by The Beautiful South, a video about a break up with a sense of humour.

Taken from the bands second album Choke, this was their only single to reach the number 1 spot, (they had reached number 2 with their debut single Song For Whoever and repeated that with 1998’s Perfect Ten).   Their greatest hits album “Carry On Up The Charts” was a major success for the band, reaching 6*Platinum certification in the UK, and it’s believed that 1 in 7 households owned a copy at one point!

The group broke up in January 2007, claiming the split was due to “musical similarities”
