Song of the day: Mike Viola and the Candy Butchers – "Fall Back Down"

September 15, 2012

The fourth Mike Viola CD arrived in the post t’other day. It’s Falling Into Place, and deciding which song from it to play to you proved to be rather difficult because there are at least five Grade-A Proper Power Pop Songs on it.

I’ve gone with this one:

Mike Viola and the Candy Butchers – “Fall Back Down” (1999)


Courtesy of commenter side3 (Hi, Sidey!) who told me about it, here’s a mini-documentary/promo video for Falling Into Place:

Song of the day: Candy Butchers – "What To Do With Michael"

September 13, 2012

The third Mike Viola CD arrived in the post*. It’s Hang On Mike (credited to the Candy Butchers, but it’s basically Mike and friends), and I must confess that after one listen I’m especially keen on it. (Note to self: Listen to it more than once.)

However, there were two tracks that I liked immediately. This is one of them:

Candy Butchers – “What To Do With Michael” (2004)

Song of the day: Candy Butchers – "You Belong To Me Now"

The first of my four Mike Viola CDs arrived in the post the other day*, and after listening to it I now have the chorus of track 3 firmly stuck in my head.

This is track 3:

Candy Butchers – “You Belong To Me Now” (2002)
