Grab your teacup, turn up the volume and listen to these great songs.
This music compilation features some of the best new music released in 2009. We kick it off with New Zealand’s comedy duo the Flight of the Conchords, stars of the hilarious hit television series of the same name. Rodrigo and Gabriela show off with a rocking Mexican guitar instrumental.
The Kinks were a British rock band formed in 1964 in Muswell Hill, London. They formed part of the British music invasion of the United States. The two founders, brothers Ray and Dave Davies stayed with the band for its entire duration of 32 years. In 1990, the original 4 members of the band – the Davies brothers, Pete Quaife and Nick Avory, were inducted into the Rock and Roll and Hall of fame. This song, “Have a cuppa tea”, released in 1971 on The Kinks Muswell Hillbillies album proclaims about tea that, “It’s a cure for tonsilitis and for water on the knee.” and “Tea knows no segregation, no class nor pedigree; It knows no motivations, no sect or organisation.”
