Ah yes, here we go again; the non-awaited treat of the week: my Friday music shuffle.
My elderly, obsolete iPod will take us on a random journey beyond my Man Cave into the dark recesses of my record collection, played on a shuffle.
In other words, ten top tunes played in an order decided by the iPod.
Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends!
1. La Cienaga Just Smiled by Ryan Adams. Gorgeous tune from the heavenly Gold long player.
2. Born to Move by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Latter day (1970) Creedence here with a track from the Pendulum album.
3. Maggie’s Farm by Bob Dylan. “It’s a shame the way she makes me scrub the floor!” Amen to that.
4. Star Treatment by the Arctic Monkeys. Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino is such a great record, as this song amply demonstrates.
5. The Drunken Sailor (What shall we do with?) by Fisherman’s Friends. It’s lovely.
6. Paint It Black by the Rolling Stones. The Stones, innit?
7. Bleed by Animal Collective. Tangerine Dream meets the Beach Boys from the Fall Be Kind EP. Bonkers, basically!
8. That’s How Things Go Down by Carole King. Sheer beauty from her Fantasy album.
9. McEwan’s Export by the Average White Band. A bunch of ridiculously talented white blokes from Scotland.
10. Disappointed by Field Music. Stupendously brilliant music from the Common Time album.
That’s all, folks!
