Sunday Session #4

It's Sunday, which means it's time for me to share with you guys the songs I've been listening to most over the last week. This week it's a tie again, but only between two songs. Well, really there are three, but one of them was featured in last week's session ("Shooting Shark"), so I'll just feature the remaining two:





These songs are from two of my favourite bands, Catherine Wheel and Alice in Chains. I discovered Catherine Wheel by accident one day when I was looking for a song by the Chicago band Catherine. Instead I downloaded Catherine Wheel's "Black Metallic", which remains one of my favourite songs today. From there, I acquired more of CW's stuff and they have currently reached #7 on my list of overall favourite bands (according to Last.fm).

As for Alice in Chains, well I discovered them after the Australian band Silverchair hosted the music show Rage one night, and played a selection of video clips from their favourite artists (Alice in Chains being one). The song "It Ain't Like That" is one I overlooked for years (since it's on an AIC album I also overlooked for years, Facelift), but in recent years has become one of my favourites. Alice in Chains are listed as #9 on my overall favourites list.

And that's it for another Sunday Session! I hope everyone's having a great weekend! Mine is almost over, and I have to brave the public tomorrow with my black eye and mildly swollen forehead region. Thankfully the sutures come out on Friday!

  1. I like the first one :-) I was too scared of the scary clown-looking man to play the second one ;-)

    1. If it makes you feel any better, that second video only stays on the creepy face (which is an album cover). The face doesn't move or anything. haha
