What a glorious, sunny. springlike day it is, so why not spoil it by setting my portable telephone free and let it choose a random iTunes shuffle?

Yes, it’s Friday, I’m in my Man Cave and it’s time to shuffle away.

Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends!

  1. Because I’m Me by the Avalanches. From their Wildflower album, this is absolutely great. Their gig at Motion was the best I saw in 2017 and arguably one of the best I have ever seen. I’m in love.
  2. Be Happy by Mary J Blige. Blige, this girl can sing. Lush R&B.
  3. Walking to New Orleans by Fats Domino. Classic.
  4. Guitarra G by G Club Pres. Banda Sonara. And now some banging Ibiza style dance music.
  5. Lay Down by the Strawbs. Some cracking electrickery from Dave Cousins’ legendary folk music outfit. Love it.
  6. Problem Girl by Rob Thomas. In my opinion, Matchbox Twenty’s Rob Thomas is one of the best singers in popular music. This is from his Something To Be long player.
  7. Just Because by John Lennon. Absolutely beautiful cover version of the old Lloyd price tune from the excellent Rock N Roll album, confirming that Lennon was one of the great rock and roll singers.
  8. Within by Daft Punk Feat Chilly Gonzalez. This is one of the best cuts from Random Access Memories which, amazingly, came out in 2013.
  9. Shine Silently by Nils Lofgren. Nils will never write a song as good as this and I doubt whether anyone else will, either.
  10. It Had To Be You by Bobby Darin. “It hadda be you” sings Bobby, in his inimitable style. What a voice.

That’s all, folks!
