Good Things Come In Twos

sounds like cotton

On this Tuesday, the playlist is as follows: two takes on "Ruby Tuesday", two sweeping, dramatic Britpop tunes followed by more subdued songs by a pair of talented American singer-songwriters, plus an electronic song for the coffee generation (the breathlessly-paced Röyksopp track) and one for the herbal tea/Pinkberry crowd (Télépopmusik's fizzy, but calmer "Into Everything"). A couple (more) sweet covers finish things off: Susanna Hoffs' version of Lightning Seeds' "All I Want" and Redd Kross' jangly "How Much More", originally recorded by The Go-Gos.

Ruby Tuesday:

Julian Lennon - Ruby Tuesday (on The Wonder Years soundtrack)

Emiliana Torrini - Ruby Tuesday (on Stone Free)


Embrace - All You Good Good People (on The Good Will Out and Fireworks: The Singles 1997-2002)

Rialto - Untouchable (on Rialto)

American singer-songwriters:

Josh Rouse - Dressed Up Like Nebraska (on Dressed Up Like Nebraska)

Peter Walker - What Do I Know (on Young Gravity)


Röyksopp - Alpha Male (on The Understanding)

Röyksopp's latest album, Back To Mine, is out today in the U.S. The cover of the compilation is intriguing:

Télépopmusik - Into Everything (on Angel Milk)


Susanna Hoffs - All I Want (on Susanna Hoffs)

Redd Kross - How Much More (on the compilation Freedom of Choice)
