I'm probably still influenced by watching "Classic albums: the making of Screamadelica" last week

That did prompt a digging out of rarely listened to music ... and I was rather fond of Afflecks too.

Mine, the first few are easy...

Perpetual dawn - The Orb
Ten story love song - Stone Roses
For her light - Fields of the Nephilim
Victoria - The Fall

Then it gets harder, today probably...
Soon - My bloody valentine
Papua new guniea - Future sound of London (or maybe cascade)
Copper Beach - John Metcalfe
Peace in the valley - Alabama 3

but tomorrow it might well be different, depends how I feel.

I quite like the swing era, it strikes me that one of my favourites has very apt lyrics.

Images pass through my head of a moptopped Mal Volio attempting to cycle wearing Joe Bloggs baggy jeans from Affleck's Palace... ;D

I suspect he was more of a Plaza Curry House man myself.  

I know Salvatore has found himself in said classy Rusholme establishment ("Ring-Stinger", " Japanese Flag" and "Suicide Biryani",  being just some of the menu choices).  "Rush home" was what one usually did after eating there.

Plaza Special.  If you can eat a whole one without dying, you can have another.  Free.    :o

Is it still there?

Can we get Monsieur Shread to visit before he has to returna France?

Was it a feature of a Mac Lads song?

Enquiring minds need to know.

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

(I haven't decided on my discs yet).

Danny Baker was on R4's DID this morning.  Good chat, disappointing choice of music.

A Change Is Gonna Come (or maybe You Send Me) - Sam Cooke
Something by Queen but I have no idea what
A Different Corner - George Michael
Can't Hold Us Down - Christina Aguilera
Love Is A Losing Game - Amy Winehouse
Something by Aretha Franklin, don't know what
Girl of Your Dreams - Dear Janes
Something by Elvis, don't know what

I'm very specific.  ;D And if you asked me tomorrow I'd probably change half of them.

Whittling down from 100+.... Boy this is hard.  Somedays I want to rock, somedays I want to be cossetted in three-part harmonies and somedays I just want to listen to triangle and metronome duets.

She's a woman - Beatles
Over the Rainbow - Eva Cassidy
J'Y suis Jamais Alle - Yann Tiersen
Wheels - Cake
Mr Sellack - The Roches
San Francisco - Scott McKenzie
Sambanessa - Steve Newman
Southern man - Neil Young

It'll be a different selection tomorrow....

I've decided that I don't want to decide.  I think it will jinx something deep in the universe.

Edit:  Maybe I will one day after all.

Catching up recently I spotted that - on DIDs at least - the volume goes up to eleven.

Heard that when it was broadcast - I thought she came across rather well. 

(I admit thought that I would listen to anyone on DID just for the pleasure of hearing Kirsty Young.)
