Eyewear's Top Songs of 2012: #2 'Shine' by Finley Quaye

In stark contrast to our number one, Quaye's joyous paen to internal sunshine of the mind, in the summer, and in the autumn - indeed, celebration of being forever sun-kissed, and real-kissed - is one of the most upbeat love songs I have ever heard.  It's hard not to imagine being lifted up by it.  This will turn some off.  But for the rest of us, who live through many a dull cold and rainy London day (such as this one), we'll take Quaye any day - and we should add, Quaye has written of this subject before, and may again - which is fine with Eyewear.
