TAPE DECK SHUFFLE
The playlist of our favourite songs this week. 'Side A' features some latest cuts, while the classics make the 'B Side'.
LANA DEL RAY-BORN TO DIE: Lead single off the same titled, first big release of 2012 from this years biggest, new star.
BRUCE SPRINSGTEEN-WE TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN: Our ‘Song For The Moment’ for January. The Boss is back…and it’s BIG.
INCUBUS-IF NOT NOW, WHEN?: Critics criticised this album, but with depth and beauty like this…why?
TYRESE Feat BRANDY-REST OF OUR LIVES: Even with the debate about which version is better (this or Melanie Fiona’s?), this track should have made the ‘Open Invitation’, Tyrese’s and last years greatest R&B album
COMMON-BLUE SKY: With inspiration and forever music like this Common has still got that true hip-hop sense. BE-lieve that.
BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN-BORN TO RUN: Back to ‘The Boss’. It’s time for those introspective Springsteen classics to come back to radio and his tour next year. Get your banner requests at the ready.
NANCY SINATRA-THESE BOOTS WERE MADE FOR WALKING: Lana Del Rey’s inspiration was ‘gangster’ too. In her own confident, ‘walk all over’ way.
GWEN STEFANI-EARLY WINTER: The last, great pop princess before Del Ray…No Doubt. Before you look for her bands new album this year, find this unheralded album gem from ‘The Sweet Escape’.
MICHAEL HUTCHENCE-GET ON THE INSIDE: Australia and world icon Michael Hutchence would have turned 52 this week. In memory let’s hear just how charismatic and charming he was.
INXS-NEW SENSATION: Tonight let Michael “live baby live”. Hutchence’s band will never be the same. He remains one of music’s all-time greatest front men. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
