Our music blogger Ian Bredenkamp starts your week with a hit from Bruce Springsteen to get in the mood for his tour next year. He also throws in a little One Direction and The Cure.

Our thoughts are with award-winning SA hip-hop artist Khuli Chana today who is recovering at home after being shot on his way to a gig in Johannesburg. His hit with The Parlotones, Sleepwalker, is hot and all over SA radio. Let’s get into our five songs for the week.


Bruce Springsteen will be touring South Africa in January and February next year His shows are sure to sell out. Let’s get the ball rolling with his 1984 classic Dancing in the Dark.


One Direction is hands-down the world’s biggest pop band at the moment. This is their current hit, Best Song Ever.


Suzanne Vega lands in South Africa tonight. She jets into the country for concerts on 1, 2 and 3 November. Take a listen to Caramel, one my favourite of her songs.


Thursdays are Old School Days. Here’s a classic from Michael Jackson: The Way You Make Me Feel.


I felt like something from the ’90s. Something rock. Something perfect for a Friday. Remember this hit from The Cure? It’s Friday I’m in Love.
