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 A13.  I’m conscious that not many albums extend to 13 tracks so you’ll have to be inventive with your choices this week; 13th track beginning with A, 13th artist beginning with A, 13th album beginning with A – then choose your favourite track…

I happen to have an A13.  Go Ahead in the Rain is the 13th track on People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, the 1990 album by A Tribe Called Quest.

What’s your A13?

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 V11.  Okaaaay.  It seems the combination of V and 11 is a tricky one to find a track for, but the one I’ve chosen from my limited collection (can you believe I own no Velvet Underground – travesty) is The Kids Don’t Stand a Chance which is track 11 on Vampire Weekend’s self titled first album.  I’m hoping some of you have better suggestions.

What’s your V11?

Get the Message is track 8 and it’s a blinder.

What’s your E8?
