tunes i like tuesday: rome wasn't built in a day

Sometimes you come across a singer whose voice you just fall in love with.  That's the case for me when it comes to Skye Edwards.  Edwards was the lead singer of the British group Morcheeba from it's inception in 1994 to 2003.  After that point, the group put out some good music with new lead singer, Daisy Martey, but failed to capture the magic they had with Edwards fronting them. Happily, Edwards returned to the group earlier this year.

I love Edwards' smooth, sultry vocals which lend themselves perfectly to Morcheeba's electronic downtempo style. To be honest, I had a hard time just picking one song to share with you... there's so many that I love.  "Blood Like Lemonade" or "Even Though" off this year's Blood Like Lemonade, were contenders, as well as "Enjoy the Ride", "World Looking In" and "Be Yourself". So if you like what you hear here click on some of the links above and listen some more.  As always, tell me what you think.


  1. Does morcheeba mean more pot? Just wondering...

  2. I have been hearing this quite a bit on the radio recently and love it. I had no idea who the singer was, this seems to be happening to me rather a lot at the moment. I must pay more attention!

    You have been busy since I last called by great posts, music, kissing blogs and lots of lovely kitchen items!

  3. I la la la la LOVED Morcheeba when I was in high school! I'm so happy to see Skye's back with them! You just helped me rediscover an old love! Thanks!

  4. PS... I'm totally gonna put Morcheeba song on my December mix! YES!

  5. I love this song! It is on my ipod and I play it a lot. Great choice!

    Thank you for sharing this great song and sorry it has taken so long to get here and visit!

    Best wishes,


Random love is always welcomed...
