Earworm alert. Again.
I first heard Sally Shapiro‘s ‘I’ll Be By Your Side’ last year and it deservedly found it’s way onto my end of year Top 40. So, deliciously melancholy Italo-disco that sounds like it was big in, em, Italy in 1984. Loved it lots and played it lots and lots and then a bit less. And that’s the shape one’s relationship with music tends to take:
- If love, repeated plays for certain period of time
- Less regular outings
- Even fewer outings.
But Sally has bucked the trend and came slamming back into my consciousness this week. I have no idea why, but methinks said track must now be added to All Time Classic status. Funny that.
Why not give it a whirl? The producer of the track, Johan Agebjorn, has made it available free in last.fm. But you may like to explore the accompanying album, Disco Romance, too, which is fully available in shitty ol’ iTunes Music Store, but maybe you could get the CD?
