Well, I'm going to be famous one day otherwise what's the point really? Well? This is one programme I'd love to appear on for some reason, along with 'Parkinson' and 'Cash in The Attic', or become Melvyn Bragg and fly a plane to Bangor alternating between laughing hysterically and weeping uncontrollably.
Anyway, what would be your 8 chosen songs for this wonderfully archaic and slightly mournful but well meaning Sunday morning sleep-aid as it sonorously beats across the airwaves and you think "Who is this person?" or "Hasn't Jim from Doves got a poor record selection?"
Well how hard is it to think of 8 songs that sum up your miserable/ACES/fullfulling/enterprising/satisfied life? Here's a rough guess at mine and I really don't care if they're commercial or were written on Sebadoh's tour bus:
'Asleep' by The Smiths
'Love' by John Lennon
'Theme' from Black Beauty
'Autobahn' - Kraftwerk
'Please Stay' - The Cryin' Shames
'Tonight We Fly' - The Divine Comedy
'Is This What I Get for Loving You?' - The Ronnettes
'Le Moribund' - Jacques Brel
Also I'd ask for no shakespeare, just the complete works of Patrick Hamilton and George Orwell and a detailed tome or two on the Edwardian period. Plus the sheet music to the theme to All Creatures Great & Small and The COunt of Monte Christo. And a Chewie mask. HALO3
HEh heh or something.
