The League Of Extraordinary Tracks 7: FOUR LETTER WORDS Playlists
Read and comment

Poll fans of the universe, I am delighted to return from holiday with WEEK 7 of the League Of Extraordinary tracks! This penultimate round is all songs with four letter titles and as with the original 4 Letter Words poll I’ve arranged the playlist in straightforward alphabetical order. Both Spotify and YouTube are complete but if there are gaps where you are let me know in the comments.

Once you’ve listened to these excellent selections make your choices in the poll post.

  1. NewJeans – “ASAP”*: From 2023’s Get Up EP
  2. Natalia Lafourcade – “Azul”: From 2009’s Hu Hu Hu
  3. Lo-Fi-Fnk – “City”: From 2006’s Boylife
  4. Neneh Cherry & The Thing – “Dirt”: From 2012’s The Cherry Thing
  5. Kristin Hersh – “Hope”: From 1998’s Strange Angels
  6. The Marias – “Hush (Still Woozy Remix)”**: Remix of a track from 2021’s Cinema.
  7. Laura Jean – “June”: From 2014’s Laura Jean
  8. Asha Puthli – “Lies”: From 1973’s Asha Puthli.
  9. Pinkshift – “Mars”: From 2021’s Saccharine EP.
  10. Michelle McAdorney – “Mona”: From 2000’s Whirl.
  11. Raavi – “Nora”: From 2020’s Don’t Hit Me Up.
  12. The 2 Bears – “Work”: From 2012’s Be Strong.

*- Abbreviations are fine if they sing it as a word in the song, which NewJeans do at least once.

** Remixes are fine as long as the title change is confined to the parentheses, as here!
