In the interests of genuine equality, Mrs Eclectic Blue, my better half, my reason for being, love you to the moon and back and all that shit has requested – no, demanded – that she be allowed a Friday shuffle. So, I’ve caved in. Here, then, is ‘er indoors’ Friday Music Shuffle, ten of her own tunes played on the music centre at random.
- Batman Theme by the Jam. Well, that’s an odd one which I’ve never heard before. Hmm.
- These Days (feat Jess Glynne, Macklemore and Dan Caplen) by Rudimental. Acne’s very own Rudimental, veering way off course from their usual Drum and Bass sound.
- Baba O’Riley by the Who. Arguably (not arguably to my ears) the Who’s greatest ever tune, from the mighty Who’s Next long player.
- Rockabye by Clean Bandit feat. Sean Paul and Anne-Marie. Some star-studded assistance to the posh Corbynistas on this admittedly excellent track from the What Is Love? LP.
- Arepa 3000 by Los Amigos Invisibles. From their mighty album Arepa 3000: A Venezuelan Journey Into Space, here’s the title track. Pretty well perfect, this is an essential album.
- Penthouse and Pavement by Heaven 17. Some synth pop from the elderly Sheffield synth-poppers.
- He’s Misstra Know It All by Stevie Wonder. An absolute classic from the legendary Inner Visions.
- White Lines (Don’t Do It) by Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel. From their finest album, the Best of Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel. This one features DIY SOS presenter Nick Knowles on lead guitar.
- Do Nothing by the Specials. From 1980s More Specials album, this is one of Linval’s tunes. Nice.
- Have A Cigar by Pink Floyd. A little something from Wish You Were Here.
Don’t stop and keep rockin’, kid.
