|Yep, the boxes/bags are records too. Bloody hell, you can see why they invented MP3 really.|
So, the first five tunes (in my humble opinion) which play when I press shuffle are:
1 Rizzle Kicks: When I Was a Youngster:
Love love love Rizzle Kicks, love the music, the cheeky lyrics, but most of all I love that they wanted to be signed soooo much, they didn't just sit on their backsides and wait to be found. Oh no, they sent a sound file to Radio One, and begged them to listen to it. Proof that if you want something badly enough you have to go out and grab it for yourself.
I love the lyrics of this song- we al have these plans when we are kids, but sometimes we forget them and give up too easily.
The Offspring: Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)
Yep, this was a big "Subsonic" anthem (which will mean nowt to anyone who wasn't in and around Rochester in 1998/1999). What a mad song, but one which makes me grin like a mad thing when it pops up. My little group knew a few of these kind of people, and being the cool things we thought we were, found them all funny. We probably looked as sad as they did!
Bestival, 2010. That's what this reminds me of. Its quite aggressive I suppose, but if you have ever been in a mosh pit or similar, you can relate. Only sounds as good as it can be, when turned up neighbour annoyingly LOUD.
Rolling Stones: Sympathy For The Devil
Come on, you have to join in with the "oh oh" bits of this song, right? Sublime. Love the Stones.
Primal Scream: Come Together
I first heard this song when the film "Human Traffic" came out. I still love the film, and I have gone on to love Primal Scream (I was only 10 when this came out originally so excuse me being late to the party!). Such a great end of the night record. Lovely.
So, how about you then? What's on your MP3?
