Iron man didn't sound too good when I was six!
Although I once caught him singing along to "Manic Monday" by the Bangles
Mine didn't know who Elton John was. ELTON JOHN!
Though he always seems to pronounce it 'Nervada'.
but his favourite album is The Magnolia Electric co. and his favourite concert ever (apart from Pink Floyd doing The Wall) was Mogwai in Brighton 1999
And The Stones. But mostly Classical beyond that.
probably. Loves Dylan too.
Pick yr clothes up off the floor.
And get a job.
but he mostly just listens to Classic FM. The only albums he owns are Fleet Foxes, Grace and Best of REM aside form some classical stuff. I gave him Fleet Foxes and Grace 4 years ago.
For my dad
...but he has a bizarre soft spot for Enya.
i think my dad made a special shelf in the kitchen for her CDs.
or planxty or something along those lines
When Freddie died in 1991, I remember my dad (who was very much of the old school) saying "Turns out he was a poofter! I never realised." I said "Dad, he had a big moustache, dressed in leather & was in a band called Queen. He wasn't exactly in the closet."
but it's more likely the lighthouse family now
Maybe Elvis, the Everlys. Used to listen to Cash a bit.
My dad is so indie about Taylor Swift, it's unreal.
a quick scroll through my Dad's iPhone reveals Ondatropica, 'And I Was A Boy From School', The Notwist, Until The Quiet Comes in full, Daphni, 'Sea Within A Sea', the new Errors B-sides compilation, TV On The Radio, Low and TNGHT
but still, The Beatles
He has a point.
One of his other pieces of advice is »If you're gonna have one, have a big 'un.«
Which, incidentally, is something your mum enthusiastically advocates.
Hence why I hate Genesis with a passion
just Van Morrison, nothing else
and a lot of artists called Blind - basically, the blues and old-time jazz. Some terrific stuff. He likes a bit of Leonard Cohen as well.
At a push I'd say Michael Jackson or Reef
