  PS not everything just the good stuff.


1. David Bowie- (as always) 'specially Space Oddity

2. Queen- Not just any Queen but the song '39', a sci-fi skiffle adventure by the Platinum rock band.

3. The Walker Brothers/ Scott Walker- The electrcian is the best song in my life right now, it's so dark it makes Nick Cave look like vanilla yoghurt (ok this is a lie, but it's dark ok).

4. Flogging Molly (always some Irish punk in the mix)- Any of it is good 'Worst day since Yesterday' and 'If i ever leave this world alive' especially.

5. The Clash- Train in Vain and Spanish Bombs and Police and Thieves and i could go on....

6. Robyn- Radio 1 live lounge edit of every Heart Beat and You can't handle me

7. Sigur Ros- EVERYTHING by this band makes me happy, especially from Takk and (). Check out Hoppipolla if you haven't already.

8. Rage against the Machine- are going to play reading festival this year and I'm going to have to kill somone to get a ticket, still a jail sentence well worth it. FREE MUMIA MAT_JAMAL!

9. Chemical Brothers- Just rediscovered the joys of 'Let forever be surrender'. Fucking Mint!

10. Tom Jones- I know, i know, I promised i would never speak to him ever again but i've finally forgiven my father and allowed him back into my life. Dad you sing 'Help yourself' like no other!

  I love Sigur Ros...they make me very happy too!

I've also been listening to the soundtrack from Once and then The Swell Season by the same two people.

Umm...can't really think of anything else at the moment...

On my special edition Big Lebowski Soundtrack I've got, love Elvis Costello.

I reckon these are pretty obvious to be honest Chris ;-P

>orson - no tomorrow

this isn't a good song, ewwww!

>ricky gervais - free love freeway

This on the other hand is a fucking excellent song (It's not gay)


Cheers brother

I might be a bit biased about that one due to the person who sent it to me, but still, it's good in a cheesy way in my book ;)

I like the part that says "funny hat shiny pants, all we need for some romance".

I have a funny feeling most of us will be dissappeared, some will be in his harem and Hif will have a place in his cabinet.

I agree with all of it except for The Strokes. I hate them. Now, I think musically they are great... but their singer makes me want to poke my eardrums with a cottonless q-tip.
