Rod Thomas

doesn’t fit with the image of the typical whiny singersongwriter lamenting about broken hearts and shattered dreams. The Southwales-raised singer writes songs that can’t be beat with their life affirmation and joyfulness. Pop music you’d like to dance naked in the rain to.

a song that reminds you of school
The Cardigans - Sick And Tired

I remember that me and a friend both saw the video on «The Big Breakfast» (a morning TV show) and when we got into school we both were like "oh my god I head this great song this morning!!" 

best Beatles song
The Beatles - Michelle
best concert you ever attended
Feist
Björk

Both incredible in very different ways. 

your boozed up anthem
Pulp - Babies
Elastica - Connection

If either of these come on when I've had a few drinks I'm unstoppable! 

a song guaranteed to make you feel depressed
Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit
record you were looking for the longest
Menswear - ¡Hay Tiempo!

I'm still looking...

a record you fell in love to
Emiliana Torrini - Love In The Time Of Science
first record you remember
The Beatles

A Beatles compilation that my parents used to play in the car when we drove around in summer holidays. It was annoying though as I could never find my favourite songs in the collection at home!

the song to be played at your funeral
Richard Swift - Looking Back, I Should Have Been Home More
a song that evokes the greatest summer of your life
Sleepy Jackson - Lovers

I'd just moved to London in my summer holidays at university to work at a record label, met some great new people from all over the world, the sun was shining every day and life was absolutely brilliant.

your ultimate heartbreak song
Tom Waits - Grapefruit Moon

But then «Spirals» by Adem is so beautiful that it kind of breaks my heart too. 

perfect anthem for London
Louis Armstrong - What A Wonderful World

I think people focus too much on bad things that happen. I know it sounds quite naive but I think it's an amazing place and although it costs a lot to rent in the city, I'm amazed week by week by things I discover all the time. I love it. 

your party anthem
Black Box - Ride On Time

It just always sounds so great in a club, and when people hear the first few seconds they go wild.
