The Saturday Selection

I’m back in Cornwall for a month, (as you noticed I didn’t do my Live in London segment this week, and I probably won’t be for the next few weeks either) so this week I figured I’d do some, maybe Cornish music, but we’ll see. And it’s also been extremely hot and sunny, and I’ve been able to go to the beach with my girlfriend to try and get a tan. Unfortunately it didn’t work for me. Sadly, starting yesterday, the usual cloud has begun to rein over us again, so here are 5 songs to make you think of Cornwall in the summer, or one or the other, or something, I dunno, just listen and think of something nice!

Ruarri Joseph – Severed Dreams

Crystal Fighters – In the Summer

Fleetwood Mac – Dreams

Mick Fleetwood, the drummer, was from Cornwall! Oh, and guess where the bands name came from?

Death Cab for Cutie – Summer Skin

Queen – Flash

Another drummer that comes from Cornwall, we do love our drummers don’t we? I also happen to have attended the same secondary school as him, in case you’re interested, which you most probably aren’t.

The Saturday Selection

Well, here I am, sitting at my desk, a little bit bored. So I thought, why not give my readers a little selection of music to keep their weekend ticking along nicely.

So this is for you! To kick this (hopefully weekly) mix off I thought I’d put the first 5 songs that come up on my iTunes. A risky choice, I know, and I admit there’s a lot of random music in my collection, and I will be taking out the classical music, as I feel that’s not what anyone’s here for. Also, unfortunately due to the fact that big names could appear here quite easily I will only be putting up the tracks if they’re on Soundcloud, otherwise I’ll post a link to a YouTube video so you can still listen. Sorry! Here we go:

First up,

The Phantom Band – Walls

Eels – Nowadays

Seth Lakeman – The Ballad of Josie

British Sea Power – Please Stand Up

Eels – Rags to Rags

So there we have it, the first Saturday 5 to grace these pages. Not as bad as I was expecting, although unfortunate about there being two Eels tracks there, and the second Eels video, I almost didn’t recognise Mr. E, with his funky blonde hair and hardly no beard! I was shocked!
