Life style

The meaning of life

If the audio stops playing, press stop and allow time for the stream to load.

This week's programme is a celebration of life, featuring 55 minutes or so of songs with lively titles. Two songs this week are taken from excellent Rhino records compilations, truly the best compilers out there. The first is Mally Page singing a tune penned by Tony Hatch called "Life and Soul of the Party" from the One Kiss Leads to Another: Girl Group Sounds Lost and Found compilation of teeny-bopper girl pop, chanteuses and girl groups. The other is from the perennial favourite Nuggets box set. Let's not forget the awesome compilations put out by Soul Jazz, this week represented by an Alain Toussaint track lifted from New Orleans Funk called "Get out of my life, woman." That's living all right.
