52 Songs for 52 Weeks: Week 45 – Pounding by Doves

Doves is an overlooked band in America.  Formed by 3 guys who met in highschool way back in 1985; they released their first album Lost Souls in 1991.

However, it was their second abum, The Last Broadcast that reached #1 on the UK charts.  While the first single (There Goes the Fear) from that tremendous album was higher in the charts; I’ve always preferred this second single, Pounding.

It’s a song that starts strong and everytime you think it can’t get any stronger it does.

The Last Broadcast is defnintely an album you should check out – although I’d argue that all 4 Doves albums are worth having in your library – or you can pick up their greatest hits.  This band is extremely consistent in recording great music.
