15 songs

super mark over at cooking up a quiet storm has issued new and exacting demands...

1. A song by an artist or band who's name would be categorised under 'A'
2. A song with a running time under 2mins 30sec
3. A song with a colour in the title
4. A b-side you played as much as, if not more than, the a-side
5. A cover version
6. A duet or a song by a duo
7. An instrumental
8. A song that's 'easy on a sunday morning'
9. An original song from a film soundtrack
10. A song released by a solo artist better known for being part of a group
11. A song that you associate with your parents
12. A song with an iconic sleeve
13. A song not in the english language
14. A song from the 80s that would NEVER feature on 'Now That's What I Call The 80s'
15. A song to go on a compilation entitled 'Seminal Songs For Modern Teenagers'

a new weekly feature as it turns out the first one landing monday the 1st of feb... i had a ball sorting my fifteen out and if you fancy a go do let the cooking mixers know...

this was nearly a song by an artist or band who's name would be categorised under 'a' but then it wasn't so we'll have it here instead... i've an horrible feeling the ituners will be increasingly lost in alphabetical categorisation but then again they're probably a lot cleverer than they look...

an xmas gift tape

the dustysevens xmas party catastrophe (me in the kitchen with far too much booze for anything other than an horrific mess) fighting hiccups and playing records...
an hour or so of it sounded like this...

who will buy

here we're indoors hiding from rampaging bargain starved humungous telly weilding consumer mayhem even if i'm not entirely truth be told convinced the aisles of the vegan workers cooperative i might possibly've popped into will've been trashed by the maddened hordes desperate for a slightly cheaper bag of lentils but better safe and all...
happy not buying anything day (apart from all the things we did)

sunday to saturday

 here we're still tutting and muttering and making oh all manner of disappointed it'd be different if i was a bbc producer/ queen of the world unsettling noises about all that bbc4 indie programming... there were moments i know mainly p orridge ones and more kitchens this time than the post punk one's fireplaces but it said nothing to me about my life... oh alright it did but it said them wrong and missed so much of the point... mainly the we oppose all rock'n'roll bits... apart from the rock'n'roll we liked obviously...

to swagger is worse than stumble is all you really need to know...
