Song of the day: Marykate O’Neil – "Get Down"

It’s been a while since I played you some pure, unadulterated Bubblegummy pop (well, not since December last year).

To correct this awfulness, here’s thoroughly modern musician Marykate O’Neil giving an old 70’s pop hit a new lick of musical paint:

Marykate O’Neil – “Get Down (2002)


The huge advantage of playing you that cover version is this: it gives me the perfect excuse to play you the original, which I adore more than you could possible know:

Gilbert O’Sullivan – “Get Down (1973)

    One of Gilbert O'Sullivans' (hope the “'” is in the right place!) best. Had 3 of his albums in the 70s & all good.

    He started out in the late 60s as Ray O'Sullivan … guess the name change to Gilbert was catchier. Have sent you one of Rays songs. Don't know when it was recorded but it was released in 1972
