More Old Tracks from iTunes

Browsing through one or two iMixes on iTunes I came across a couple of tracks that I had forgotten about.

The first is Driven By You and could be described as a sort of Queen track, although it was released by Brian May alone on a solo album. Probably most famous for it’s use in a car commercial (can’t remember for who), not suprising given the words!

The other two are by Hue and Cry, who I know almost nothing about, aside from that they were a numericaly large band (9 people including a brass section) but I like the songs! Labour of Love is probably the better known, but I like Ordinary Angel as well, particularly the chorus:

‘Cause I’m an ordinary angel
Winning tiny victories
And though the ordinary angels fly
Their wings weigh heavily
I try to be a daily genius
There’s no idea beyond my reach
With all the angels and the geniuses
My company I’m gonna keep

  1. “Driven By You” was comissioned by the ad agency Ogilvy and Mather for a TV campaign for Ford in summer ’91. The adverts were so successful that it got a single release later that year.
