The Dynamics - misery.mp3

can't get enough of this track. i can never listen to it just once. it's so rough and ready but it's got all the attitude, specially when the chorus kicks in with all the yelping falsetto vocals. i always play it when i dj somewhere, and even though most people have never heard it, it always gets people up.
the band were from Detroit, and never really got much recognition beyond their home town, something to do with competing with the emerging Motown label probably. but you can find it on loads of northern soul comps, including this one (click here to buy at amazon)
Hey Griff - you're dead right old boy. Tis a cracker!
Remind yourself (or try for the 1st time)of 'The End Of The World' by Skeeter Davis (1963). The perfect teen heartbreak country-tinged ballad. The gorgeous arrangement on this is cock-on. Check out the dissonant strings and the gentle steel guitar! not to mention Skeeter's vocals.. she sadly died recently... it just comes across as so goddamn heartfelt. Marvel at the heavy, deadpan spoken word section at the end!
A desert island break-up song if there ever was one: ...

'Why does my heart go on beating
Why do these eyes of mine cry
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when you said goodbye'.

As a DJ, try this song during the 'erection section' at the end of the night and watch as 'tired and emotional' couples snog or slap
each other amidst the blood, snot and tears.
cheers dickvandyke,
the skeeter davis track is a winner, spot on, that voice, wow....
