I thought I’d start a new thing in my usual slot. This is not hugely dissimilar to WOYT. I’m going to hit shuffle on my player of choice and see which three tracks come up next. I’ll post them here as tracks and pop them into the box too. It would be lovely to hear what you think (about this new idea and the music).
Oddly, the 3 tracks that came up first are all from compilations.
I do believe I may have nominated the first song for an RR theme on cheating – it had already been zedded some time before, but it does what it says on the tin etc.
Jackie Mittoo popped up 2nd. One of a couple of excellent Studio One compilations we have of his lovely keyboard sounds. Keyboard King of Studio One is probably a stronger collection but this track does very nicely.
The Best of David Bowie: 1969 – 1974 is a 20 track collection I borrowed from my friend Dr Rob and promptly ripped it. I have just 6 Bowie albums in total; this is the only collection though and is full of hits. This is a brief song about a short-lived affair that makes him miserable. All we know about the girl is, she has long blonde hair and is more than likely the Devil’s daughter. The opening reminds me of something by Badly Drawn Boy and the jaunty sax and strings make this a cute song of heartbreak.
What comes up when you hit shuffle?
