Downbeat Upbeat Show 6 – The Bats and Supergroove

Two Downbeats in show six, both from The Bats – Supernova and Hubert.

I couldn’t find video of those two tracks, so check out the band’s video page

And for the upbeat? You Gotta Know, by Supergroove.

Check out a live version from 1995 on Youtube.

And a little quiz about this somg: What year was it released? Well, it was the year that the country voted to bring in MMP, the year that Jane Campion’s The Piano hit or screens. Yes, ladies and gentlrmen, say hello to 1993.

Downbeat Upbeat – Show 1

Downbeat upbeat – this is the segment where you can experiment and help keep the music playing. The idea is simple – choose one song that’s downbeat – slow, sad, dirgy, deep, slow or dark, and another that’s unfailingly upbeat – a song or piece of music that always leaves you smiling or feeling that little bit better.
Show 1 it was Pink Frost and Every Day is Sunday.
