The Music Diary Project: Day 4


Lady Gaga: Born This Way
Ke$ha: We R Who We R
The Saturdays: Higher

The shrill telly soundtrack to getting the girls dressed before I had my shower. Junior 1 was complaining her school socks didn’t match, Junior 2 was turning the house upside down looking for her glasses and Junior 3 was throwing all the books down the stairs.


Glen Campbell: Guess I’m Dumb
Van Dyke Parks: Sweet Trinidad
Todd Rundgren: I Saw The Light
The Supremes: Come See About Me
Marshall Hain: Dancing In The City
James Taylor: Carolina In My Mind
The Isley Brothers: That Lady (Part 1 & 2)
Van Morrison: Domino
Al Green: Sha La La (Make Me Happy)
Bob Dylan: Quinn The Eskimo
Stevie Wonder: Big Brother
Steely Dan: My Old School
The Beach Boys: All This Is That
Cat Stevens: Morning Has Broken
The Chiffons: One Fine Day
The Impressions: People Get Ready
The Honeys: Shoot The Curl
The Four Seasons: Who Loves You

Diana Ross & The Supremes: Someday We’ll Be Together
The Rolling Stones: Sweet Virginia
Sharon Marie: Thinkin’ ‘Bout You Baby
Scott Walker: Copenhagen
Paul Simon: Mother And Child Reunion
Paul & Linda McCartney: Maybe I’m Amazed

This playlist for a warm, upright, delayed commute is called No Jacket Required. Every long second passed like a breeze. Book: it’s still The Time Traveler’s Wife.


Ghostface Killah: Supreme Clientele

It’s Wu-Tang Week on Jukebox Junior FM. This album is of course immense and crisp sounds work well in the shiny new enormous meeja office.


David Bowie: Station To Station

Twitter reveals the Esquire office is arguing about the best Bowie album. I don’t know the answer, but this is the last one I bought; that 3-CD deluxe reissue. Beautiful stuff, here on Thin White Jukebox Junior.

More ear balm as it happens.

  1. You like Ghostface!!! Hurrah, there is hope for you yet. I trust you’ve heard The Pretty Toney Album – his best bar none.

    Oh, and I got that Station to Station box too. Smart, isn’t it?

    • To my SHAME, I’ve not heard the Pretty Toney album. I’m a Ghostface dilettante.

      Love the StS box set – even the live stuff is worthwhile, which isn’t always the case. And it’s all so smart and touchy-feely.
