Chart positions

This show was 6th in the global indie pop chart, 9th in the global classics chart, 11th in the global indie chart and 17th in the global alternative chart.

A slightly eccentric mix this one, featuring a mixture of new and old songs I've recently fallen for, songs that have been highlights of recent HDIFs, upbeat songs, slow dreamy songs, two new songs by Sufjan Stevens, two new songs by OCS, and two songs from "Forever Changes" by Love, to mark the 50th anniversary of its release (plus a track from The American Four, the band Arthur Lee played in before he joined Love). We'll be playing every song from "Forever Changes" at HDIF on Saturday so this is the perfect warm-up. There's loads of gorgeous music in here, but listen out in particular for Short Dream by Verandan, the new band formed by Ville of Cats On Fire. It's wonderful.

The next How Does It Feel To Be Loved? is on Saturday November 18th at The Phoenix, 37 Cavendish Square, London, W1. Guest DJ is Paul Court of The Primitives, and we'll be playing every song from "Forever Changes" over the course of the night. Info:
