You know that feeling you get when you suddenly remember something you’re supposed to do, while you’re in the middle of something else you probably could do without doing? No? Me neither… Anyway, on with today’s shuffle!
- Fitter Happier – Radiohead. Well, there’s been a bit of a Radiohead renaissance in the Moore household thanks to their Glastonbury appearance and the 20th anniversary re-release of OK Computer. This is from the aforementioned masterpiece. The Stephen Hawking-esque spoken word track serves as a quick breather before the album continues to blow your socks off.
- She Belongs To Me – Bob Dylan. Another track from Bob’s ‘Bringing It All Back Home’ album. It’s short and sweet.
- I Shall Be Free, No 10 – Bob Dylan. Mr Dylan, again. This is from ‘Another Side of Bob Dylan’, probably one of his less acclaimed albums that falls in between his ‘The Times They Are A-Changing’ record and the much more well-known ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ release. It’s just Bob, his guitar and harmonica and what you would hope is an un-rehearsed stream of nonsense lyric!
- Nutbush City Limits – Ike & Tina Turner. A bit of a foot stomper to get the blood pumping in case the previous two sent you to sleep! According to Wikipedia (you always have to be careful) Nutbush is the birthplace of Tina Turner. I’ve learned something today…
- The Death Of You And Me – Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. The first single released by Noel in his new ‘solo’ guise. It’s very much like ‘The Importance Of Being Idle’ from the Oasis album ‘Don’t Believe The Truth’, which isn’t a bad thing, because that’s quite a good song, as is this. You’ve got Noel, guitars, and brass. It’s a heady mix, but it bloody well works.
And that is that. I hope you enjoyed this latest musical journey, and will be back next week for more??!!
