Bulletproof – La Roux. Uplifting and not unlike the back track to an 80's computer game. Also see Hotel California which seems to have lent it's more vivacious moments to the game Hellfire.
Relax – Captain Sensible when I found this version of the Frankie goes to Hollywood song, I was so impressed it went strait on the list. The film references are good too. Does anyone think the use of Bad moon arising in An American Werewolf in London, was just so he could reinterpret the line to make it, “there’s the bathroom on the right”?
Chain Reaction – Dianna Ross. What Diva, and an interesting interpretation of love as a thermonuclear explosion.
Coming into Los Angeles – Arlo Guthrie. Good all round folk song from Woodstock, the sixties live on.
Communication Breakdown – Led Zeppelin. The first of three in a row, each with a different message, but all kicking. This one reminds me of when the wrong words can sometimes send things pear shaped.
Don’t Stop me Now – Queen. Sometimes you are all these things and more, it’s a wonder you don’t burst.
Flash – Queen. This heroic tale swells the heart. Buster Crabbe would be proud of this successor.
Nobody’s Home – Pink Floyd. This and the next track really paints a picture of isolation that I sometime feel.
Comfortably Numb – Pink Floyd. I recognise those symptoms, but these days I Don’t drink quite so much.
Fly Away – Lenny Kravits. Up lifting and a sentiment I sometimes feel.
Frankly, Mr. Shankley – The Smiths. Sometimes I get a complete feeling of alienation from that job I can’t avoid, and it is only sheer bloody mindedness that will carry me through. This is how I feel then.
From Noon 'til Three – Elmer Bernstein. The lyrics are so true, no wonder it won an award. The film it is taken from is the only real case of identity theft I know of.
Funky Moped – Jasper Carrot. I hale from that corner of the world, so the phonetics speak out to me of childhood days, much in the same way a Slade song does.
Gabriel's Oboe – Ennio Morricone. Shut your eyes and relax, in divine contemplation.
Glorious – The pierces. An upbeat interpretation of the previous track.
Great Balls of Fire – Jerry Lee Lewis. His private life aside, a world without this man's contribution would be diminished.
Greyhound – Swedish House Mafia. I call this track Dalek rave, every Doctor Who fan should hear it. I always get ideas for the accompanying music video I’d like to make for it; when I hear this track.
