…But the Family Stand is hardly the first thing I've found from watching So You Think You Can Dance. I was blown away by a little ditty used in one of the dance numbers last season – not least because the dance itself was captivating.

The song was called Rama Lama (Bang Bang) by Roisin Murphy – an Irish singer late of the musical act Moloko, whom you might remember from their club hit "Sing it back".

Anyway, I forget where I read it at the time, but it sees much of the album this track is from – Ruby Blue – was improvised in the studio. Not I think the melodies, but I think the producer's idea was to create the music using a whole host of everyday objects.

Or maybe that's all bollocks. Either way, the album is great, and this song is still one of my faves.
