Playlist for a grey autumn morning:
1) You are my World - The Communards
A real odie this from the 1980s - saw it on a repeat of the Tube last night.
2) Brilliant Mind - Furniture
Another oldie and as far as I know their only hit.
3) Everyday I Write the Book - Elvis Costello
Yes you have detected a bit of an oldie theme going on here!
4) Tiny Dancer - Elton John
Even older oldie - we recently saw this on a dvd my mum had of The Old Grey Whistle Test from the 1970s.
5) Solsbury Hill - Peter Gabriel
I loved this when I was younger and travelling west to see my mum made me want to hear it again - luckily I already had it in itunes!
6) Whistle Down the Wind - Nick Heyward
hmmm it's all getting a bit early 1980s around here!
7) Starlight - Muse
Ahhh that's better something a bit more contmporary.
8) The Old School Yard - Cat Stevens
Taking oldies to the extreme!
9) All the Things - The Lightning Seeds
from the brilliant album Tilt.
10) Beloved One - Lou Rhodes
