In the words of Moby Grape… listen, my friends! Yes, it’s the (hopefully) monthly playlist presented by George’s Journal just for you good people.

There may be one or two classics to be found here dotted in among different tunes you’re unfamiliar with or have never heard before – or, of course, you may’ve heard them all before. All the same, why not sit back, listen away and enjoy…

¹ The original charting version of this über-earworm, as performed by the British singer-cum-actress whom would later go on to appear in Stanley Kubrick’s notorious satire A Clockwork Orange (1971)

² The theme that introduces the irresistible ’60s French film star sisters in Les Demoiselles de Rochefort (The Young Girls Of Rochefort), Jacques Demy’s colourful seaside-town-set follow-up to his 1964 iconic musical Les Parapluies de Cherbourg (The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg)

³ An exquisitely lugubrious theme from the (now) Oscar-winning, legendary film composer for the giallo movie Le Foto Proibite di una Signora Per Bene (The Forbidden Photos of a Lady Above Suspicion/ The Secret Picture of a Respectable Woman)

4 The epic title track from the band’s eighth studio album, a patent and potent critique of the Cold War (in its then early ’80s state) which features a reading from George Orwell’s 1984 (1949) and on release was accompanied by an equally epic short-film of a video; here its lyrics are quite fittingly put to images from the movie Brazil (1985)
