That Friday Music Shuffle (6/10)

Are you as excited as me? Of course you’re not. Why should you be? After all, if you’ve read this far you will be half asleep. And why? Because it’s time for my weekly self-indulgent music shuffle, where my elderly iPod belts out some tunes through the speaker in my Man Cave.

So, welcome back my friends to the show that never ends.

1. Sure Maybe by Pagliaro. I kid you not but Michel Pagliaro’s 1971 is one of my favourite rock/pop albums of all time with a shed load of killer tunes. Older folks may recall his hit singles Lovin’ You Ain’t Easy and Rainshowers.

2. You’re All I Need To Get by Michael McDonald. No one does blue eye soul like Michael McDonald and this is a proper gem from his Motown record.

3. Reelin’ in the Years by Steely Dan. From their Green Flower Street live album, this version bears virtually no resemblance to the original, missing Eliott Randall classic guitar riffs so much it only just sounds like the same song. Tight as a duck’s arse, mind.

4. Stella by Here We Go Magic. Let this beauty from 2015’s Be Small wash all over you. Fantastic.

5. On The Beach by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Simply magnificent, all the way back to 1974, I think.

6. Drystone Wall by Xaos. Seriously epic music from Greece, from an album which took 10 years to make.

7. Love Hurts by Jim Capaldi. Great cover of the Everly Brothers classic.

8. Something New by Saint Etienne. Their most recent album Home Counties is superb, not least this gorgeous tune.

9. I’m Sitting On Top of the World by Al Jolson. From 1926, would you believe? Amazing.

10. Barber’s Adagio for Strings (Ferry Corsten remix) by William Orbit. Hmm. The song’s better when Corsten isn’t pissing around with it.

That’s all, folks!
