Days running a PR agency are eclectic and I have a playlist to match. For the good weeks and the bad, these songs always feature on my seven-day playlist. The days of spin are behind us so I'm giving it to you raw and un-cut.
Joy Division - Oven Gloves by Half Man Half Biscuit
A new entry for me.I recently, and accidentally, crashed the local Ukelele society get together at my favourite Sunday night haunt… the Balham Bowls Club (a pub!) They played everything from Price Tag to Wonderwall, but this song stuck in my head.
Frank Sinatra - One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)
A great way to end the day and the guarantee of a good night's sleep. I saw the show at the Palladium recently, an amazing way to experience Ol' Blue Eyes as if he were still here.
Blur - Coffee and TV
I was in Chicago for a friend's wedding a couple of years ago and this was the soundtrack to my summer. It also happens to by my favourite song from Cruel Intentions. Don't judge me.
Wailing Souls - Wild Wild Life
The best song in one of the best films of all time, Cool Runnings. If you watch this movie and don't feel better for it, you have no feelings.
Paul Simon - Call Me Al
Did he ever think this song would make for a cheesy nightclub anthem? Did I ever think I'd spend a birthday at South London Pacific listening to this song? No and no, but how well it worked!
