Cool to be Uncool ! Top Best Ten Lounge Albums

We have been having a look at Lounge music this week on Rock Revival, specifically all the corny but cool acts who have covered rock, including Lord Sitar, Richard Cheese, Rolf Harris and Frank Bennett.......oh yes and Paul Anka

Despite my love of rock I have to admit that the Lounge playlist is the biggest on my iPod, bursting at the seams with Bond themes, Sammy Davis Jr, Joao Gilberto and Salsa

Lets take a peak now into the true beauty of real Lounge, into the world of fake world music, bossa nova, swing and corny soundtrax of the 50's and 60's

1. Sergio Mendes Brasil 65

2. Burt bacharach Make it Easy on Yourself

3. Frank Sinatra Cycles

4. Martin Denny Exotica
