Alright then. There's this song. It's called 'You're Mine'. There are loads of reasons to let it pass by, like the hundreds of other songs you see whizzing past your eyes every single day on streaming services, timelines and music libraries. These are songs we all make decisions about based on their titles, the artist names, or the artwork.
But you should give 'You're Mine' a listen.
Five Reasons To Ignore 'You're Mine'
1. It's called 'You're Mine'
'You're Mine' isn't a very inspiring song title, is it? Loads of songs are called that, or things like that.
2. The artwork is a bit on the arty side
Look at the state of the picture at the top of this post. Just look at the state of it.
3. It's by someone called 'Raving George'
Some people might see the name Raving George and think, 'yes, I definitely want to hear a song by someone who sounds like he runs an overpriced blanket stall that each summer tours the UK's major music festivals', but anyone who thinks that probably needs to lay off the legal highs. Raving George is not a good name for a musical artiste. Fair play, Oscar And The Wolf, who's here on guest vocals, has a good name and is in fact actually good in general, but Raving George is a big name to get past.
4. Spinnin' are responsible
Spinnin' Records are responsible for a LOT of very good releases at the moment. The Watermät and Becky Hill one is brilliant. But they're also responsible for about 8,000 other releases every single week. So you might think, 'Spinnin' do good releases, but the chances are this is one of the other ones'.
5. Not only that but it's on Spinnin' Deep
Spinnin' Deep is a Spinnin' sub-label. 'Deep' is not a word that inspires much confidence if you're after a stops-you-in-your-tracks pop moment.
One Reason To Listen To 'You're Mine'
1. This song is absolutely amazing. You could probably call it a masterpiece. It's five and a half minutes long and it doesn't do everything in the first minute, so you need to commit to it and just let it work its magic, but the whole thing is immensely rewarding and exciting. Also: Raving George is a lady so it was deeply misogynistic and problematic of you to think it was a man running a blanket stall.
