Visioneers remix of 4hero’s The Action is our Song for Sunday. “Nice, smooth and easy”.

Apart from the classic music, you get…

A taste of Brazil in this week’s Song For Sunday with Patricia Marx’s Menino. Patricia Marx is criminally underrated.

Regardless, the Brazilian Patricia Marx’s talent is undeniable and having achieved success in her native country in the 90s released two brilliant…
