Submit your best [...] playlist

Right, another suggestion for a lockdown thread for folks to contribute to if you feel so inclined. I’ve enjoyed browsing the Mogwai best of thread and Radiohead ‘make a 12 track’ best of one that picked up again recently so thought I’d kick off a more general submit a playlist thread.

No hard rules - can be a band ‘best of’, or (to make it a bit different to the ‘favourite band playlist’ thread from a while back) a best of a particular label, genre, country, year or decade. Requests on what you want others to submit playlists on welcome. Let’s stick to 12 tracks and an hour or so of music though to stop things getting too unwieldy.


I’ll kick things off with my Pulp best of - in chronological order my 12 would be…

O.U. (Gone, Gone)
Do You Remember the First Time?
Pink Glove
Common People
Bar Italia
The Fear
This is Hardcore
Glory Days
Birds in Your Garden


If there are some songs that are short (less than 90 seconds), can I have more than 12? Or just discount the really short ones from the total number of songs, or something.

You have my permission - I’m not going to police it, submit what you like (just don’t take the piss too much)

I only have one permanent playlist as I normally only make others for travel and any other time I listen to albums. But it is this

Go on then, here’s my Blood Brothers one, no tracklisting order just as they come to mind

Doctor! Doctor!
James Brown
Mutiny On The Ark of The Blood Brothers
Every Breath Is A Bomb
The Six Nightmares At The Pinball Masquerade
Love Rhymes With Hideous Carwreck
Rats and Rats and Rats For Candy
Camouflage, Camouflage
Giant Swan

No ‘Set Fire to the Face on Fire’?

Not a massive fan of that song tbh. Its a good album opener but its not one I’d go to

Yeah to be fair it’s definitely not a better song than Giant Swan.

Just spent a while making this 70s Beach Boys Brother Records-era playlist excluding songs from Smile (because they’re technically from Capitol era) and M.I.U. (because they’re technically a bit not very good). Basically avoided the songs that sound like The Beach Boys as much as possible…


I made a list of my favorite plant-based albums a while back. Albums made specifically for plants to improve growth
Mort Garson-Plantasia (obviously)
Louie Zong - Greenhouse
Ele Ypsis - Meiosis -
Stevie Wonder - Journey Through The Secret Life of Plants
10ft Ganja Plant - Bass Chalice
Biosphere - N-Plants
CoryYayo - House Plants
Shocking Twist - Music for Succulents
Plantrae - Taproot
Jan Grunfeld - Music for Plants
Life of the Plants - Lee Scratch Perry
