Shame on You


After suggesting (threatening might be more accurate) yesterday, that I might string together some 'shame' songs, temptation got the better of me. It did remind me why I continue with such apparent pointlessness though, because I unearthed something rather lovely from Denmark that's I'd downloaded from Bandbase.dk last year.

Delightful, yet chilling, acoustic guitar & vocals, railing against an unfaithful ex-lover.
Shame on You - Herborg Torkilsdóttir
Shame on You (2007)
myspace - another three songs there






I really enjoy this French band - Prototypes, check out their tracks Exister & Je te connais pas if you can.
Yup, sung in French, apart from the repeated title, but it doesn't matter at all.
I've got no Shame - Prototypes
Synthetique (2008)
myspace | buy


Shame - PJ Harvey
Uh Huh Her (2004)
buy



written by Vince Melouney, the Bee Gees lead guitarist... this is so far from their disco output
Such a Shame - The Bee Gees
Idea (1968)
buy


Finally, back to Scandinavia...
Walk the Shame - Pony the Pirate
Norway this time, and "...the story of an unusual, depressed pirate who just can't handle the challenges of the world. He sails the seven seas, steers his ship toward truth and fear, in search of an island that will give him joy, passion and meaning. "
