Album Part 2

Just to let you know I’ve updated the Album posting with a bit more detail on why I made the particular selections. Check it out by following this linkĀ or pressing the previous button at the top of the page. I hope this helps turn it into more of a story rather than just a selection box and encourages you to let me know of one or two of your own favourite LPs and why. The hills are alive folks and what else are you doing eh?

Albums

You’ve probably seen the thing going around Facebook asking you to share one image per day of the covers of the 10 albums that defined your musical tastes. My lovely sister Hel nominated me and ordinarily I don’t do this sort of chain letter shit.

Steve McLaren’s new album

Well I thought I’d do a tribute album from the dead man walking at the FA. I couldn’t think of any songs entitled ‘He’s so f**king’ useless or ‘Get rid of him please Brian’ but thought these might be appropriate:

2. Go now

3. Help!

4. Everybody hurts

5. God only knows

6. Under pressure

7. Substitute

8. Money for nothing

9. No more heroes

10. Fool on the hill

11. Another one bites the dust

Feel free to suggest more biting titles. Who’d make a good manager to do a track-list for? Mourinho’s theme song (You’re so vain) is a bit obvious. What about Wenger?

I was reading in the Independent today that the President of Indonesia, one Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (top name!), has composed a whole album of romantic ballads, entitled My Longing for You. How cool is that? What’s more his anticipated opponent at the next General election, the former army chief General Wiranto, has also recorded an album. Now it got me thinking that we should have more of this in British politics. How much less bitter would it have been if Tony and Gordon had recorded an album of songs to celebrate their political fortunes over the last 12 years or so. It’d be a cracker ….
