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 W2.  I’ve chosen If Ever I Was a Child, the 2nd track on Wilco’s 2016 album, Schmilco.  What’s your W2 track?

  1. My first weekend back home and my first Wheel Of Your Tune for a while.

    My collection is jam-packed with “W” music, so choosing didn’t seem to be an easy choice, at first glance.

    However, I am a big fan of The Who and track two on Quadrophenia is a corker. It is The Real Me

  2. Oh you’re REALLY getting it in the lug’oles from me this week!!

    Willard Grant Conspiracy – Let It Roll

    That’s gothic-Americana acoustic folkies, right?
    * MWAH-HA-HA-HA!! *

    Turn it up loud and strap yourselves in for a 9min+ thrill ride!

  3. Wild Nothing – Summer Holiday

    In which the Virginians cover the Cliff Richard classic.

    Won’t you sneak into my room and crawl under the covers. Talk nonsense in your sleep

  4. Marcin Wasilewski Trio- Night train to you

    One of the finest piano trios currently playing, this was the track that really hooked me, from their 2011 album Faithful. Abahachi had previously posted some fine clips from their earlier albums on here but I think Faithful confirmed a step up into the major league for MWT.
    A beautifully sustained vamp in 11/8, in live performances they really turn up the heat and the lyricism on this one.

  5. Jag Wobble’s Invaders of the Heart (does that count as a W?) album “Take Me to God”.

    Track two – Becoming More Like God

    This will post as anon – it’s severin

  6. Lucinda Williams – House of Earth*. From her last year’s album, Ghosts of Highway 20.
    * Written by Woody Guthrie and not sung before. Sent by his daughter to Williams who polished it up and recorded.

  7. Track 2 from an album beginning with W led me to Arctic Monkeys’ I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor, but as much as I love the band and Alex Turner’s writing, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not is little league compared to Fiona Apple’s 1999 When the Pawn Hits the Conflicts He Thinks like a King What He Knows Throws the Blows When He Goes to the Fight and He’ll Win the Whole Thing ‘fore He Enters the Ring There’s No Body to Batter When Your Mind Is Your Might so When You Go Solo, You Hold Your Own Hand and Remember That Depth Is the Greatest of Heights and If You Know Where You Stand, Then You Know Where to Land and If You Fall It Won’t Matter, Cuz You’ll Know That You’re Right. The title is a poem she wrote about shitty fans and the album was her last for several years after a nervous breakdown on stage. Guess we should have seen the signs.

    Here’s track 2, To Your Love

  8. One band dominates the W section of my collection. I’m going to go for something off last year’s mini-album Nocturnal Koreans

    Wire – Internal Exile

    I saw someone on the net dismiss the album as “Wire for Elbow fans” which I think is completely wrong but then again I’ve never listened to Elbow so what do I know?
