Top Tracks # 21 - Chungking - 'Making Music'
Time for another in the increasingly irregular series of Top Tracks...basically anything I like from the last 100 years or so. I'm in a snuggly mood today, mainly 'cos I'm trying to stave off hypothermia. So here’s the perfect song to snuggle up to (who or what you snuggle up to is your business...man, woman, dog, radiator, a hastily microwaved Ginsters Pasty...anything to stop yourself from freezing to death is fine by me), Chungking’s ‘Making Music’. The ‘king are another one of those bands that seem to have garnered loads of ‘critical success’ but relatively little of the commercial variety. Oh well, the public’s loss is our gain as we can snuggle up to our pasties safe in the knowledge that this track ain’t about to be used to advertise sanitary pads or covered by The Saturdays any day soon. That’s enough of a reason to give this tune a spin, but the fact that it’s a heartbreakingly beautiful comfort blanket of a song that’s pretty much guaranteed to warm even the nippiest extremities is a real bonus. Ahhhhhhhhhhh. Enjoy.
