    Really hard.

    At the moment:
    Teardrop – Massive Attack
    All I need – Air
    Windowlicker – Aphex Twin
    Can U feel it – Mr Fingers
    Apache – Michael Viners incredible bongo band

    Obviously I am leaving out 20 tonnes of hip hop. But, according to my itunes, these are the songs I listen to most. After that comes Dry the Rain – Beta Band and Waterloo Sunset – Kinks. Funny cos I would have thought Run DMC, Jungle Bros, PE, etc would be in there but they are a bit down the chart. Wu Tang is higher than them all.

    Five is definitely not enough, but:
    Afterglow – the Small Faces
    That’s Entertainment – the Jam
    Late Night Maudlin Street – Morrissey
    Indoor Fireworks – Elvis Costello
    Mr Pitiful – Otis Redding

    this is tough (wouldn’t be interesting if it wasn’t) – my thinking is – a bit of country, a bit of 70s rock, my fave band of the last 5 years, a current fave indie-song that I’ll probably never listen to again once the current obsession with it runs it’s course,and an all-time favourite song that I’ll never tire of

    She – Gram Parsons
    Stay With Me – The Faces
    Molly’s Chamber – Kings of Leon
    The Infanta – The Decembrists
    I Say A Little Prayer – Dionne Warwick
