Song of the Week: Swing Out Sister -- "Love Won't Let You Down"

SwingOutSister.jpgThe veteran British pop vocal group Swing Out Sister is defined, of course, by the deeply resonant vocals of Corinne Drewery and its catchy, easy-on-the-ears melodies. The group also features Andy Connell on piano and Paul Staveley O�Duffy on programming and percussion.

�Love Won�t Let You Down� is one of those upbeat, sunny songs that seems lifted from the go-go 1960s. Drewery�s vocals are sublime, of course, but it�s the constant vocal refrain from the group � whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-ohhh � that makes the song sparkle and keeps it lodged in your head long after its over. It�s one of the best songs of 2004.

The song is from the band�s brand-new album called Where Our Love Grows, on the Shanachie label. The rest of the CD is sublime, too.
