It’s been one of those rare days when I have not been able to write anything, despite about a dozen false starts. Only one thing to do then and that’s to create another random iTunes music shuffle.
I’m back in my Man Cave, armed with a pint of Ruddles County and I’m ready to go. So here goes.
Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends!
- Ain’t No Sense In Love by Take That. From their best album Beautiful World, which turned them into a credible band.
- I Can’t Win by the Strokes. With Julian Casablancas’ voice way too low in the mix, this is still a belter from their Room On Top record.
- Strength of a Woman by Shaggy. Good old Orville (his real name) with a catchy tune from Lucky Day.
- I Wonder Who’s Kissing Her Now by Harry Nilsson. Gorgeous from his A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night long player.
- She Bangs The Drums by the Stone Roses. Very nearly perfect.
- The River of Dreams by Billy Joel. I’d never go to see Joel perform live because he hasn’t made any new music since 1993, which is to say this tune from his album River of Dreams. Great legacy of tunes, mind.
- King Midas in Reverse by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Yes, that Hollies tune, performed by CSNY on their Four Way Street record. Actually, only Nash sings and plays here.
- Danny Boy by Andy Williams. Yes, that Danny Boy. Not ashamed to say I love Andy Williams.
- Gimme Back My Bullets by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Magnificent southern rock by the original line up.
- Good is Good by Sheryl Crow. Wildflower is such a great record.
That’s all, folks.
