It can’t be Friday already, can it? Good grief, so it is. Well, that can only mean one thing, which of course is complete bollocks, but the one thing I just know you aren’t waiting for is my Friday Music Shuffle. Yes, those moments when my old iPod churns out 10 tunes at random and for no obvious reason I tell the world about them. So, let’s rock.
Welcome my friends to the show that never ends!
1. Harvest by Neil Young. Beautiful from Old Shakey’s album of the same name.
2. On the Run by the Wondermints. The mighty mints with a shimmering track from their beautiful Mind If We Make Love To You long player. One of my very favourite bands ever.
3. I Am the Storm by Blue Oyster Cult. Yes, they really have done more than Don’t Fear the Reaper.
4. It’s Okay John Joe by Dexys. Whatever you think of Kevin Rowland, you can never accuse him of selling out and succumbing to the nostalgia tours and he continues to make new music. One Day I’m Going to Soar is his best album IMHO.
5. Lullaby by Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks. Brian does absolutely nothing on this okay orchestral piece.
6. Shaka Doobie (the limit) by Sammy Hagar. From his Ten 13 album, the voice of Montrose and Van Halen returns to form.
7. All About Soul by Billy Joel. It’s obviously brilliant.
8. Bobby Fame by Talc. Criminally unknown band who are like a cross between Steely Dan and the Bonzo Dog Band. Brilliant music and very funny, often pub related, lyrics.
9. The Night by Franke Valli and the Four Seasons. Classic Frankie.
10. Long As I Can See The Light by Creedence Clearwater Revival. JC Fogerty in classic raspy tones, here. Lovely.
That’s all, folks!
