The Best Songs Of 2011: #4 – Adam Stafford ‘Step Up, Raise Hands’

Ex Y’all is fantasy island frontman Adam Stafford’s solo album ‘Build A harbour immediately’ has topped many end of year polls, and understandably so. A handul of songs from that album also found themselves in folks top tens, but confusingly I’ve yet to see this one voted by anyone, which is a shame as it’s a wee pop masterpiece. ‘Shake your hips and start dancing like you’re born again’ intones Stafford, over massive break beats and one of the catchiest hooks of the year. This song was my #1 for a while, and it took some mighty fucking great tunes to dislodge it.
