Here’s the third of my monthly mixes for you, cunningly called
October Mix (47-ish MB, mp3):
Peter Sellers ‘She Loves You’
New Order ‘Love Vigilantes’
Ultrasound ‘I’ll Show You Mine’
Some Girls ‘Necessito’
T Rex ‘Hot Love’
Tommy James & the Shondells ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’
The Unicorns ‘Sea Ghost’
Tiger ‘Where’s the Love?’
Morrissey ‘The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get’
Sugarcubes ‘Fucking in Rhythm and Sorrow’
Super Furry Animals ‘For Now and Ever’
You know when someone makes you a tape and they put a bit of comedy or something wacky on there, you kinda think to yourself, ‘what a dick’?; well today, I am that dick – I put a comedy version of a Beatles song on there. But it’s Peter Sellers and he’s a comedy god, so his talent exempts me from being a dick.
As for the rest of it: A great New Order song; Ultrasound’s best song; a song by Juliana Hatfield’s band; a song by that German band that did ‘Da Da Da’ who are actually a fucking superb band and the one hit wonder-ness of ‘Da Da Da’ does them no justice; my favourite T Rex song; an earlier version of song most of you will know the Tiffany version of; the wonderful Unicorns; Tiger – a forgotten English band; Morrissey – a well-known English man; a jaunty lil’ Sugarcubes song; and a Super Furry Animals song which is my favourite last-song-on-an-album ever, which I think might be the theme of the November Mix, as finishing an album well and appropriately is an underrated aspect of the album as a concept.
Hope you enjoy. It’ll stay online for a week so grab it if you want it.
