The twenty-third track in my All-Time Top 25 Tunes is number fifteen, ‘Alpe d’Huez’ by Oxfordshire’s We Aeronauts.
For the second (and last) time, my All-Time Top 25 Tunes includes the work of an unsigned band.
What I like about this song is that We Aeronauts have clearly demonstrated how unafraid they are of ‘being different’.
This talented group of individuals have come together to make a piece of music that begins in a subtle, low-fi pop manner, yet ends with a stunning choral climax.
Don’t make me laugh.
We Aeronauts have clearly demonstrated they each have more ‘X-Factor’ than any of the winners of that ridiculous TV ‘reality’ show will ever possess.
And a hundred times more originality.
And that’s why ‘Alpe d’Huez’ has made it in to my All-Time Top 25 Tunes.
It is wholly original.
And unafraid of being different.
