It’s been 15 years since we launched S-Curve Records, and to celebrate our anniversary we’ve compiled a playlist of “The Complete S-Curve Singles: 2000-2015.” Incredibly, a label that was started for the sole purpose of releasing The Baha Men’s “Who Let The Dogs Out” has lasted a decade and a half (and counting).
From the start, the label’s only A&R mandate was to create records that we loved and that weren’t just clones of whatever was on the radio at the moment: “Unique records with massive potential.” And from amazing hits like “Stacy’s Mom” by Fountains of Wayne, “Honey, I’m Good” by Andy Grammer, “Check Yes, Juliet” by We The Kings, “Super Duper Love” by Joss Stone–and many more hits that you’ll find on the playlist below–to wonderful if less-renowned tracks like “I Was Only (Seventeen)” by the Beu Sisters, “Speak A Little Louder” by Diane Birch, “Barbie Eat A Sandwich” by Care Bears On Fire and Little Jackie’s “The World Should Revolve Around Me,” I think we achieved what we set out to do.
It’s been a privilege getting to release music by icons like Tom Jones, Duran Duran and Betty Wright; to have recorded with David Broza and Steve Earle in East Jerusalem with a half-Israeli/half-Palestinian band; and to have even gotten to work with the legendary Swamp Dogg! Thanks to all the wonderful artists whose music is represented here.
Here’s hoping the enclosed 57-song playlist conveys the scope of what we have tried to do for the past 15 years. And there’s more to come in 2016—just you wait!
Enjoy the list—and some fun accompanying charts highlighting our biggest sellers and most prolific artists.
IMPORTANT NOTE: While Spotify has most of our single releases available for your enjoyment, there is one that’s missing. In order to insure that this list truly is the COMPLETE S-Curve singles, we present a YouTube link to the 2002 single “Accident” by Baha Men, which was featured in The Wild Thornberrys Movie. The video alone is worth your time…..
