Something In The Way
The animals I trapped have all become my pets, I'm
living off of grass and the drippings from the ceiling... Oooh,
Paradise! All ties severed, free and clear, we are butterflies,
But if you've once been in the public eye, there's
always someone around wants to try and break you on the wheel.... Lila
Tree of Life. Golden
Oldie choice, Something In The Way, Nirvana, Nevermind
Two: Bears Discover Fire. (Crossing the Border..)
All the way the paper bag was on my knee, man I had a dreadful flight-
Back In The USSR. The Beatles White Album Disc 1 Track 1
Can't get away from The Beatles, now can you?
Three: Dead From the Waist Down#1 (Bandit Queens)
Hold Us Down Christina Aguilera and Lil'Kim (Stripped)
Dunno what all that's about. Not being sexist, but
I never think a woman looks comfortable in hotpants. So, back
to my selections. Staying Together
For The Kids, Blink 182, Take Off Your Pants
And Jacket. It's hard to wake up, when the shades have been pulled
shut... They fuck you up, your mum and dad, sometimes to hell
and back. But the music makes it better, so here's something to get
you going from your head to your toes. Addicted To Bass, Puretone/Josh
Abraham; 1998/2002 try here (be patient!) for the Melbourne outfit's
legendary Mad Max video:
Dead From The Waist Down#2
Under The Bridge
had to be in here somewhere and this seems like the spot.
Sometimes I feel like I don't have a partner,Sometimes I feel like
my only friend, is the city I live in, the city of Angels, Lonely as
I am,Together we cry...
Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blood Sugar Sex Magic
Five: November Rain
There are many reasons not to call this episode November Rain, starting
with it's happening in June,
but somehow it had to be. How NOT to do it... Finally, my roots: the
Guns'n'Roses tribute, and well deserved. But here's the one about Fiorinda:
Patti Smith, Redondo Beach; Horses. Sad description, we were looking
you were gone gone.
Guns'n'Roses, Use Your Illusion
Relax! Don't do it...and mind you shoot it in the right direction
babe. The perfect track for a bizarre
stadium rock finale. And nobody said it was easy, nyah, but we got there.
Frankie Goes To Hollywood; Welcome To The Pleasure Dome 1984/98
Step On My Old Size Nines And I'll Take You Round; Sterephonics, Jeep.
Maybe that sounds like a strange choice for the pocket armageddon feature,
but it's what was on my mind. Going to get me a boy and a girl... And
how about that Kelly Jones. Is he not cool? (Note, all dictators have
a big lie. My outrageous whopper, I now feel free to confess, was when
I made out the English had the music)
Also, of course,
Desperado, the Eagles track, country rock for a pair of amateur outlaws.
Why don't you come to your senses, you been out riding fences for so
long... Tell me about it.
Road tripping with my two favourite
allies, fully loaded we have snacks and supplies. These smiling eyes
are just a mirror for the sun...
Peppers again, Californication
She's Walking, Through The
Clouds, With a circus mind that's running wild...
Little Wing, Jimi
Hendrix. I don't need the words, I'll have the long instrumental version
(Stevie Ray Vaughan)
Nine: Precious Bane
The temptation is to try and finish with a cracker, but it's a sign
of confidence when an album ends quietly, and it's right for our US
tour to end with a gentle track, such as this one, which has associations,
apparently, for my big cat... It's
Emmy Lou Harris, Songs Of The West
For the ones who burn the Midnight Lamp, for
the people we won't see again, and the desert places we won't forget...
Goodbye, we're going home.
