In between these two tracks i discovered the Danish group Catbird, the Uzbek singer Yulduz Usmanova and the great brass ensemble Boban Markovic Orkestar. I also mopped up lots more music by 2008 faves such as Outkast and the Ivar Kolve Trio and got very very into Dusty Springfield.
I also picked up a lot of jazz: Art Farmer, Kenny Dorham, Blue Mitchell, etc, and some more tracks from Chinese chanteuses of the 30s such as: Yao Li and Wu Yingyin.
My most loved tracks of the year were: Yellow Moon, Who Do You Think You Are Kidding Mr. Hitler?, Diamonds Are Forever, Search And Destroy (the Andrew Russo aliens+piano version), Edelweiss (solo recording by Julie Andrews, not from the film) and Sophie's Lullaby. More showbiz than usual - my playlists are more usually a mix of electronica, female vocalists and WW2.
