Greetings grapple fans and welcome to this week’s music shuffle. What happens is this. My music device, which houses all my music, chooses ten random songs and then I tell you what it’s chosen. And if you want to listen, and even sing along, then just click on the song title.
I hope you find something you like.
- Do It All Over Again by Spiritualised. Back we go 22 years for this cracker from the Let It All Come Down LP.
- Captain Stupido by Thundercat feat. Flying Lotus. Great track from 2017’s Drunk. Love this guy.
- That’s Close Enough For Now by Field Music. Lovely track by the Mackem brothers, taken from their 2016 album Commontime.
- Let It Roll by Little Feat. Title track of their 1988 album and it abso-fucking-lutely rocks.
- Jesus Of Rio by David Crosby and Graham Nash. Quite beautiful. Those lyrics, that tune. Listen out for James Taylor on backing vocals.
- A Tale Of Woe by Terry Hall and Mushtaq. My favourite Terry Hall album, 2003’s The Hour of Two Lights, and this great track shows why. Mushtaq Omar Uddin is a great foil.
- When God Made me by Neil Young. And now we go back to 2005 and a lovely joint from Prairie Wind.
- Africa by Toto. 1982, lyrics of pure gobbledegook but what a classic anyway! 921 million views on You Tube. From Toto IV.
- U Don’t Know Me by Armand Van Helden Feat. Duane Harden. Back to the last century – well, 1999 – for some classic House.
- Bryn by Vampire Weekend. From the band’s brilliant eponymous debut in 2008, I love Ezra Koenig.
Easy peasy Desert Island Disc this week – it’s the exciting number five tune, Jesus of Rio by Crosby and Nash.
Have a good week ’til next week.
