#2 of my top 30 songs of all time

06/04/2013

#2 Walking on the moon – The Police Probably one of the worse videos ever made , shell suit included, but a fantastic track with some of the best drumming ever (not originally performed on the side of a rocket!). When new bands (and speakers) start they feel the need to fill every moment with sound, this is a […]

#3 Superstition – Stevie Wonder I came to Stevie Wonder only a few years ago to be honest after hearing Superstition in the opening scene of the Will Smith film I,Robot and I’m so glad I did. This is one of many great songs of his, I just love the distorted clavinet and Moog synth here that he somehow […]

#4 of my top 30 songs of all time

#4 It must be love – Madness It’s not often that a cover version is better than the original, but this is an exception. A great version of a Labi Siffre’s song that means a lot to me. Madness may have been the nuttiest band around but they were romantics at heart! Thanks Suggs. “British […]

#5 One Love / People get ready – Bob Marley This is my favourite Bob Marley song. This is him at his best imho, great vibe, summery feel and amazing musicianship. Job done. My blurb about #mytop30 … I now have 15,906 songs in my iTunes collection. In my defence I am an ex-DJ, honest! So on […]

#7 Cissy Strut – The Meters Very deep funk tune with an amazing bassline (try playing it on a proper sound system!) featured in lots of films but people don’t often who it’s by. “New Orleans R&B and funk band The Meters formed in 1966 with a line-up of keyboardist and vocalist Art Neville, guitarist […]

#8 of my top 30 songs of all time

04/04/2013

#8 Papa don’t take no mess – James Brown James Brown was a game changer, he brought black music into the charts and later in his carreer also became a political force too. His personal life was a rollercoaster, but his music remained solid, mainly sue to his amazing band including Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley (who […]

#9 of my top 30 songs of all time

#9 Beats to the Rhyme – Run DMC As a Hip Hop DJ in my youth I wasn’t much of a Run DMC fan to be honest, until I saw them live at Manchester Apollo in the late 80’s with their support band The Beastie Boys. What a show! The late Jam Master Jay just walked on stage with […]

#10 of my top 30 songs of all time

04/04/2013

My top ten – here we go…. #10 Here comes the sun – The Beatles My favourite Beatles song,  a family favourite of ours. I guess I’m a George Harrison fan as my favourite Beatles songs are all his. He wrote this positive song at a tough time in his life and as The Beatles became more and more fractured. Astronomer and science populariser Carl […]
