Song of the day: Sugarbomb – "Tastes Like Sugar"

Yesterday’s post, featuring techno-didgeridoo artist Ganga Giri and his dance-club-friendly beats, forced me to ask myself an awkward question:

“OK, Peter. You were banging on about how you’re not a fan of dance club beats. Is there anything with a dance-y kind of beat that you do like?”

To which I answered in my best Perry Mason voice:

“Why yes, Peter. Yes there is.”

And this is it. It’s the title track from Sugarbomb’s independently released 1999 debut album:

(Dance-club-related advice: turn this up, up, up!)

Sugarbomb – “Tastes Like Sugar” (1999)


I have a feeling that the band, when not licking ice-creams, had their tongues in their cheeks when they recorded that.

Update: I’ve been advised by the 20-year-old in the household (Hi, Celeste!) that the above song isn’t dance-clubby at all. (As in: “There’s no way that’d be heard in a dance club nowadays. What century were you born in?”)

Update II: I just remembered that there’s another dance-y song I like. It’s “10,000 Nights” by Danish band Alphabeat, and it was Song of the day a couple of years ago.

    Glad to see you're back up and running, Peter.
