Tune Of The Day

There’s this thing I do on Facecrack, Tune of the Day, I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before. Every day, I post up (and message to some mailing list type people) a tune. Might be for a reason (a birthday, a death, that sort of thing). Might be just cos…

It started back in November 2009, with a Fila Brazilia remix of The Twilight Singers, and Volume 1 took us up to my end of year charts. Volume 2 started roughly when the new year did, and there’s been 100 tunes (ish) since then. Hiphop, blues, gospel, soul, classical, industrial, roots, jazz, indie, metal, techno, blah blah blah. Still gets a really satisfying amount of downloads every day, and not that much moaning about inbox-bothering.

For the record, the most popular download of volume 2 was Nick Cave’s dolorous cover of Pulp’s Disco 2000. The least? Tragic Roundabout’s Gone Dancing, which is a bloody ACE tune, you heathens.
