After an uncomfortable morning enduring balance tests at the hospital (having hot water pumped into your ears to make you dizzy and nauseous and the like!) followed by a concillatory coffee with Hunchermuncher I feel I need to share this weeks top ten tracks on my MP3 player. So hear goes.... (in no particular order)
1) P J Harvey - Kamikaze
Revisted this after they used it for an ad on Sky Tv - Pure Brilliance!
2) Utah Saints - Something Good
Excellent track, mostly due to the Kate Bush sample.
3) A-ha - All I want
The new single from those Norwegian boys, who many of you might remember (fondly or otherwise from the 1980s). Poppy but pleasently palatable.....
4) Dolly Parton - Jolene
Don't ask me why, I just fancied it!
5) Ruts - West One (shine on me)
Excellent stuff, what a great band they were! Might have gone on to even greater things if it had not been for the untimely demise of their singer Malcom Owen.
6) Justin Timberlake - Rock Your Body
Well I did warn you that I like pulp pop at this time of year. I hated this track when it came out and was being played in all the shops but it has kind of grown on me. Is that the taste police i hear knocking at the door?
7) Love Spit Love - How soon is now?
An excellent cover of a Smiths classic, which (or witch) was used as the theme music to the tv programme Charmed.
8) The Magic Numbers - I see you see me
Love the melodies on this, haven't heard much of the numbers but what I have heard I am liking!
9) Pearl Jam - Given to Fly
Love it, love it, love it!
10) Green Day - She's a Rebel
was a hard chice between this one and Jesus of Suburbia ( which incidently takes up a massive 14 mb on the MP3 player but is worth every second!).
