Songs of the Week, 29~01~16

This is the first of a new series called “Songs of the Week”. It will be a weekly round-up of all of the songs that caught my attention this week. Nice and simple, huh?!

There will be mostly newly released records, and as independently sourced as possible—although I shan’t rule out throwing in some older stuff that I have stumbled across recently.

Girogio Moroder – “Déjà Vu” (feat Sia)

Giorgio Moroder + Sia = POP. SUMMER. HAPPINESS.

That this song has moved me to dust off my neglected blog is surely reason to celebrate.

Déjà Vu is an embrace of sunshine, wrapped in a mid-summers day, and crammed down your throat with delight. Follow the link below. Dare you not to dance.
