I used to love art at school and always had very nice art teachers who liked me.
Almost «Blackbird». My top ten are probably all Paul's.
Elliott Smith in Manchester University. He wore a pink woolly hat and played a song I requested by shouting out (between the bars). I remember someone at the back yelled out «You sexy bastard» and he visably blushed. I was heart-broken when I heard he died.
But in a very good way.
Still looking. «Ring Dance» by the genius Robin Williamson. I have an old knackered copy but I need another. Can't find it anywhere.
«Wild Horses» (by The Rolling Stones) sung by Alicia Keys. Off her MTV live album. The closet thing to my girlfriend and I having «a song».
Paul Simon's «Graceland» in my dad's car when I was a kid. It's still one of my favourites.
Don't want to tempt fate but, «Kiwi Maddog 20/20» by Elliott Smith. It's an instrumental with a real kind of ambiguous beauty, like life.
Has the boundless energy of early summer.
I will never turn the radio off if this comes on because it has one brilliant hook, but very silly lyrics. A very guilty pleasure. I hate myself.
«Heaven is place where nothing ever happens». Harrogate is pretty but quiet, very quiet.
Breaks my heart every time I hear it. About insecurities magnified by the madness of love.
I don't know about everybody but certainly me. LTJ Bukem presents Logical Progression. I love Drum N Bass. Some great stuff on here including one of my favourite ever tracks. «Danny's Song» by PFM. Perfect. And Little Richard's «Good Golly Miss Molly». You could power a large city for a year with one of his two minute songs, this one in particular. «She sure likes to ball»!
«Be aggressive b-e aggressive, b-e-a-g-g-r-e-s-s-i-v-e».
Who knows, but how about one of mine. «I'm Not Proud Of Myself» off «Bundle of Nerves».
«The Shawshank Redemption» soundtrack by Thomas Newman
Is there anywhere better to be than Paris on a sunny sunday morning?
