The List

Late, and in no particular order:

  1. Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here. Always hated pompous post-'Meddle' Floyd, but last night I heard a band called Rasputina (2 cellos and drums) do a cover of it, and it was ace.
  2. Steps - Tragedy.
  3. Tight Fit - The Lion Sleeps Tonight. Where are they now?
  4. Robbie Williams - No Regrets. I once got drunk and requested this in an Industrial Goth club.
  5. Van Halen - Jump. Stadiums were built for songs like this. Or stadia.
  6. Coldplay - God Put A Smile Upon Your Face. Chris Martin is the expert at writing profound sounding lyrics that mean sod all. Catchy tune, though.
  7. Starsailor - Good Souls. As above. Even more earnest and miserable than Coldplay.
  8. J. Geils Band - Centerfold.
  9. Morrissey - First Of The Gang To Die. There, I did it! Even knowing that Dom and Kek will never talk to me again.
  10. Pretty much anything by Rammstein, cos I love 'em. Best stage show I've ever seen, like a gay fetish Nuremberg Rally with flamethrowers.

'Jump' , what a very great song. The rat puppets on CBeebies 'Space Pirates' did a cover version recently .... but it wasn't a patch on the original. Strangely enough.
I have to confess, for my sins, to liking a song off the first Coldplay album ... can never remember the title.
Where are Tight Fit now? What happens to those people? I reckon the hunk ended doing gay porno. That'll teach him.

Actually, he looks a bit like Tony Hadley out of Spandau. You don't think...?

The Smiths...how can you? No wonder you wouldn't tell me what it was the other night.
J Geils Band....fucking brilliant song.

I used to have the 7" of that Centrefold song. What a cracker!

'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' is one of the greatest songs of the world, ever!

Eno did a version of 'Lion' I seem to remember.

Actually, Dom, it's a Morrissey solo song, not The Smiths. But that doesn't make it any less shameful. I always thought The Smiths might have been a half-decent band if he hadn't been in them.

Actually I think Morrissey on his own is worse.
