The Copper Top is a great shout. It’s pretty close to home as the copper top is literally a few miles from my house, been there many times and unfortunately been to the crematorium just down the road far more than I’d like :pensive:


No matter how often I hear that song, it absolutely floors me.

Kind of apt for today as well as I am off to a crematorium this morning :frowning:


The Beach Boys - God Only Knows
Björk - Isabel
The Cars - Just What I Needed
The Divine Comedy - Tonight We Fly
The Housemartins - Happy Hour

Van Morrison - Everyone
The Undertones - My Perfect Cousin
Stevie Wonder - I Wish

Big shouts for Faster and Velouria. And many more. Ugh.

Rory gallagher - In your town
prince - controversy

tom waits - blue valentine
Bob dylan - idiot wind

Morrissey - Speedway
Spiritualized - LAGWAFIS
A Tribe Called Quest - Scenario
Lemonheads - Stove
Men At Work - Land Down Under
Bowie - Five Years
De La Soul - A Rollerskating Jam Named Saturday

Here goes nothing…

Jens Lekman - Black Cab
Low - Point of Disgust

Frankie Sparo - Akzidenz Grotesk
Molasses - Insomnia
