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 S4.  This week I’ve chosen track 4 from the 1980 Simple Minds album Empires And Dance called This Fear of Gods.  The track is an absolute corker, even if you are not a fan of Simple Minds, it’s worth a listen.

What’s your S4 track?

  1. S? So many options here. I could pick something by Spiritualized, but their track fours don’t excite me, and neither do those of Spirit.

    However, track four on Steely Dan‘s debut album Can’t Buy a Thrill is worth having here. It is Midnite Cruiser.

  2. Wide open field really, I’ll go with a band that I discovered post RR and which has provided a lot of fun since then. Squirrel Nut Zippers with La Grippe. Track 4 of their Sold Out album.

    There’s a new kinda bug going around spreading like fire. And so the doctors come to check:

    Mass psychosis was their diagnosis (yes)
    So we all cashed our checks and went wild
    There’s a fool moon howling at the night
    And its bark is much worse than its bite
    So we must go out and dance around
    Yes we must go tonight
    La Grippe!, Salsa!

  3. This is cheating a wee bit, because it’s not the actual album cut, but the video of this version lets you know what The Sheepdogs look like, which I feel is important for a band with such a good name.

    Track four on their “Learn & Burn” album.

    I Don’t Get By

    WP is resisting an embedded link facility. 😦

  4. not sure why the Death Cult lineup appears halfway through this vid instead of SDC but beggars can’t be choosers.
