The almost midweek music shuffle (8/1/19)

Comments Off on The almost midweek music shuffle (8/1/19) 08 January 2019

What the heck? So it’s only Tuesday – well, I’ve been listening to music all day and now I am going to share it with you. In a rare Tuesday music shuffle, I am back in the Man Cave, the iPod on its last legs playing a random shuffle.

Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends.

  1. Girl in Collision by Chris Rainbow. From his White Trails album, a Police-type tune from the late Scottish songsmith, a man who stammered terribly until he started singing. A little known genius IMHO.
  2. Money Honey by the Sensational Alex Harvey band. Mad as a box of frogs, but boy the band could play!
  3. Come on Nature by the Proclaimers. Lush tune from the Reid brothers.
  4. Wake Me Up When September Ends by Green Day. Truly magnificent tune from the American Idiot album where Billy Joe Armstrong sings about the death of his father.
  5. Seven High by Damon Albarn. Greatness everywhere today as we join the genius Damon with an instrumental track from Everyday Robots.
  6. Soul Island by the Meters. Classic R&B funk from back in the day. Such an influential band. Proper earworm, this.
  7. Decks Dark by Radiohead. Love A Moon Shaped Pool – great record.
  8. Trampled Underfoot by Son Little. Brilliant R&B cover of the Zeppelin classic.
  9. Stepkids by the Avalanches. From their stunning Wildflower record. Bonkers and wonderful.
  10. He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother by Neil Diamond. Excellent cover of the Hollies classic, taken from his quite brilliant and game-changing Taproot Manuscript record.

That’s all, folks. You can all go back to work now.
