Friday Night Videos

Friday Night Videos

This summer's most-overlooked animated movie, Shaun the Sheep, is now out on DVD. If you like Aardman's stop-motion animation work, Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run and the rest, you owe it to yourself to check out this silly, cute film. Although there's not real dialogue in the film, it's got an excellent soundtrack, and what has got to be the standout song is "Feels Like Summer" by Tim Wheeler. It's an infectious, catchy song, which is good enough. But it's a note-perfect period pastiche, sounding for all the world like something you've heard before but forgotten in the intervening years. It's an original composition, but feels like it sprang to life several decades ago. With the weather turning colder as winter approaches, it's a good song to warm things up with.
