The Music Diary Project: Day 5

0714-0729

Nicole Scherzinger: Poison
JLS feat. Tinie Tempah: Eyes Wide Shut

It’s 4Music time again, and these two bookended my shower. I’ve got time for Scherzinger, and not just because she’s devastatingly attractive. She seems to have a bit of wit about her and the odd banally catchy tune. JLS are a big hit with Junior 2, who appears to know the words. God knows what happens when I’m at work.

0800-0920

Will Young: Leave Right Now
Lewis Parker: Masquerades & Silhouettes
Jim O’Rourke: Eureka

Alex Needham’s thoughts on ‘Leave Right Now’ in the Guardian this morning chime with mine, so I had a hankering to hear it as I settled in on the train. After that, well – I had too many pints with my brother last night and today I’m not capable of thought, so I scrolled through and picked the first unthreatening album. Lewis Parker’s crazy jedi hip hop fits the bill. It’s relaxed and mysterious. Jim O’Rourke’s ‘Ghost Ship In A Storm’ is a great soundtrack for a sun-dappled stroll down Hammersmith Road. One to remember, should you be there.

1055-1150

An office Spotify playlist including Zero 7, Groove Armada, Corinne Bailey Rae, Jose Gonzalez and many more that won’t scare the horses. Hmm.

1150-1205

Girls Aloud: Biology
The Roots: The Seed 2.0
New Radicals: You Get What You Give

A dabble in the blog archives, always guaranteeing songs I like – but no surprises, naturally.

1208-1214

R.E.M.: Man On The Moon
Kelis: Sugar Honey Iced Tea
Al Green: Let’s Stay Together

More office playlist. It’s four desks away, quite quiet, and isn’t inspiring me.

1214-1256

The Sundays: Can’t Be Sure
Janelle Monae: Tightrope
Delays: Long Time Coming
Buggles: Video Killed The Radio Star
Jamelia: Thank You
Animal Collective: My Girls
Young MC: Know How
Underworld: Cowgirl

More from the blog. ‘Cowgirl’ never gets old.

1351-1414

Dionne Farris: Hopeless
En Vogue: Love Makes You Do Thangs
Maxwell: Love You
Janelle Monae: Locked Inside
Stevie Wonder: Big Brother

My additions to the office playlist. If it’s going to be soft, it might as well be soul. Or knock-offs thereof.

1435-1518

Keren Ann: 101

This is good.

1526

Paul Simon: You Can Call Me Al

I might listen to this a few times on the bounce, song for all occasions that it is.

1618

The Cure: Lovesong

The Adele phenomenon irks me. She’s a fabulous singer, but the songs are bilge.

1840-1916

The Horrors: Primary Colours

A beast of a record. It played on loop in my car for most of 2009, but this time I’m on a train, beaming madly at the fat riffs.
