The most popular track on the Listening Post this week is Dead Anyway’s Space Dust. Effortlessly painting the scene of the long school summer holidays, placed in time by the titular popping candy. I love its dry humour, edge of danger, and those driving jazzy beats. And, AND, it ends on a punchline! “You might marry Mickey Dolenz. Or Pete Duel. You’ve already got the hat.” Utterly brilliant, bonkers, 98 seconds of pure genius. Love it!

110% (#1) by Dead Anyway is for my money the oddest song to make our faves this week, the song follows stream-of consciousness lyrics, a distillation of clichés of the banalities of modern-day life, which gets it message across in less than two minutes without overstaying its welcome.
It’s the sort of song that could find its way to becoming a surprise hit!
