The Wheel of Your Tune

The Wheel of Your Tune works like this; I metaphorically turn my spinning top to reveal a random letter and number.  The letter relates to an artist or the name of an album in my collection and the number relates to the track by that artist or on that album.  This week’s spin landed on G7.  My G7 track is Junior Kickstart by The Go! Team from their album Thunder, Lightning, Strike.


What’s your G7 track?

  1. I could pick something by The Grateful Dead but that would be unfair on Chris. The letter G is another embarrassment of riches for me.

    Unhappily, many of the albums in my collection by artists beginning with the letter don’t stretch as far as seven tracks (e.g. Godspeed You! Black Emperor) but Genesis do and the seventh track on their 1973 album, Selling England by the Pound is this one, The Cinema Show

  2. Gang of Four, Al Green and Goldfrapp are all beckoning to me coquettishly but I’m staying put in Morden where the spectacularly not-very-successful Good Shoes are/were from.

    From their 2007 debut album (they only made two) “Think Before You Speak”, track seven is this one:


  3. Donds to both Govt Mule and Genesis. I just had to choose between sax and guitar and I’m going with the latter.
    Album is Guitar On Fire. #7 is Roy Buchanan’s astonishing take on Turn To Stone.

  4. My itunes arranges itself with folk’s first names so anyone called George would do. But this fella is a horse. GG. From Realce (1979) one of the great man’s signature tunes, suggesting beach life in Rio and Salvador. Glorious. Here’s Gilberto Gil

  5. Well given it is supposed to be summer I wanted to go with a summer sound, namely La Luna Y Le Toro by the Gitano Brothers but I can only find the version by Gypsy Kings on youtube so that will have to do (you just need to imagine it at twice the speed !) Anyone who has spent time in Arles in the south of France will have heard, or possibly seen, the Gitano Brothers live as I have ! If you get the chance don’t miss it !

  6. Greetings from the Dominican Republic! As Carole says, G has to stand for the Grateful Dead in my book. Given the number of live GD albums I own, I could probably find any particular song as track 7 on one of them! But I’ll go for song 7 on American Beauty, Brokedown Palace.

    Embedding YT links is beyond my capabilities on a phone……
