Please play Flo Rida, Good Feeling at midday today because It’s a bank holiday weekend!
Please play Take me with U by Prince at midday because it’s been a week already, damnit
Please play Travelling Wilburys’ Tweeter and the Monkey Man at midday today because what could be better than an ode to the Boss by the ultimate supergroup
“in Jersey anything’s legal/as long as you don’t get caught”
largely the same as here then.
I’ll second this. Great suggestion.
Please play Jesus Built My Hotrod by Ministry because suddenly I realised this rock ‘n’ roll thing was true. Jerry Lee Lewis was the Devil. Jesus was an architect, previous to his career as a prophet. All of a sudden I felt in love with the world. And all I could do was ding a ding dang my dang along ling long.
Jesus built my car. It’s a love affair. Mainly Jesus, and my hotrod.
Please play Leonard Cohen’s Anthem because we all need some light and hope in our lives, “Forget your perfect offering/There is a crack in everything/That’s how the light gets in.”
Please play the entirety of R. Kelly’s epic hip hop saga ‘Trapped in the Closet’ (available here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFECE98856B07CD52) at midday today, because it’d be fun.
If you don’t have time to listen to it all, Adam and Joe provide a summary of it here:
Please play the angelus at midday as we all need a chiming bell to stop, look at the clouds, and think about the fleeting nature of our existence, and then promptly throw caution to the wind while we contemplate a breakfast roll for lunch, because it’s Friday and, as we all know, cholesterol does not exist between Friday and Monday morning.
Please play Classic by The Knocks at midday today because it might make the day seem warmer
Please play Jacques Villneuve at midday today because his musical genius needs to be heard
You can thank me later:

Hey that’s pretty good. Will be investigating Roxy Music now.
Please Girl Band Pears for Lunch at midday because its unreal (and I will also be eating pears for lunch. Only too 2 weeks for the buggers to ripen).
‘Summer Time’ by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong
Because we’re nearly there!
Please play 257 WEEKS by NINE DAYS at midday today because it was the inspiration for the best lipdub video ever made https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVRrjxtm9Pk
Please play Bulbs by Van Morrison at midday today because it’s a good old song.
If someone ever pulls off an Irish version of the Wire, this song should be at the end of it.
Please play “Sensitive Outsider” by Half Man Half Biscuit because it contains the words “Broadsheet” in the first verse, and reminds me of some of the more….er pretentious up their own hole types that are all too common these days.
If you don’t have that, a nice bit of A House. Maybe “I give you you” that should wake us all up.
Please play Fleetwood Macs Albatross… so we can all close our eyes and at least pretend summer is starting….
Seconded and thirded. Literally had a Peter Green youtube session last night.
‘Please play April 29th by Sublime at midday today because… today is April 29th silly ’
‘Somebody get me a doctor’ by Van Halen because Leo Varadkar
Runnin’ with the Devil might be more apt…..

Same album reminded me of this:

Is Kendrick Lamar any good? Maybe play some of him, if he is.
Please play “The Last Goodbye” by The Kills at midday today because I wish to officially mark my divorce from Broadsheet and Moyestwithexcitement. It’s the last goodbye I swear. I heard all you said don’t say anything.It’s the last goodbye I swear.
