Where Scot Makes A List....

The following list comprises songs randomly played on my ipod whilst recently driving to visit Darling Number 1. From both the list and this text you will be able to discern things about me, things that since we have only just 'met' would otherwise take too long to recount via more traditional routes.

From A Late Night Train The Blue Nile
Shoot Out The Lights Richard Thompson
Walk Awhile Fairport Convention
Sunday Sports Bottle Rockets
Ashes To Ashes Bowie
Come To Me Bjork
Because The Night Springsteen
Tubular Bells (Part 2)* Mike Oldfield
The Needle and the Damage Done Neil Young
Bob and Ray Joe Henry
Make You Feel My Love Dylan
Tower of Song Lennie
First Chance I Get Ron Sexsmith
Rock and Bird Cowboy Junkies
Trouble In Mind Marianne Faithfull
All Of You Miles Davis
Bandwagon R.E.M

Anyday Derek and the Dominoes

*   For obvious reasons I didn't listen to this in it's entirety.
** This is the Live at Nassau version. Terrific stuff!

Happy there's some Miles and Mingus in there, would probably trade one of the Fairports for something more contemporary, which could be anything.

Been drinking Joan Collins and Bordello cocktails, fundraising in Brum, completed a short film for Worcs City Art Gallery, been to an Abba tribute in Newquay (more flailing limbs than an ailing prizefighter) and am bricking it re a forthcoming Caravaggio cover version I've got planned.

What else? Oh yes, I'm a recovering artist.
