MY ALL TIME TOP 10 SINGLES : FELICITY by ORANGE JUICE

R-371182-1330487001

From January 1982.

It reached the giddy heights of #63 in the UK pop charts.

This is the sound of happiness. On a double A side 7″ single.

I really don’t think I need say anymore….

mp3 : Orange Juice – Felicity
mp3 : Orange Juice – In A Nutshell

PS

The irony here is that my favourite Orange Juice single, while sung by Edwyn Collins was in fact written by fellow band-member James Kirk.

Hence the William Shatner reference in this cover version:-

mp3 : The Wedding Present – Felicity

Many years later, James did his own great version of the song:-

mp3 : James Kirk – Felicity

  1. Looking back 30 some odd years to amazing songs like Felicity, it boggles the mind to think that it and others weren’t huge hits at the time…In my memory they were. Sure I was reading the Indie Charts and not the Gallup or Billboard charts, but songs like this are the ones that remind me of 1982 or any of those years and not whatever Hall & Oates, or Michael Jackson, or Genesis were releasing.

  2. Totally never got the William Shatner reference. Always assumed it was referring to the Weddoes song of the same name. Consider me enlightened!

  3. are all karaoke downloads “midi” files? are there any karaoke sites with both music, lyrics and back ground singers? what are the procedures for downloading karaoke and then writting to a cd?.
