3. Reelin' in the years - Steely Dan

4. Why can't we live together - Timmy Thomas

1. baz lerman - Everyone Is Free To Wear Sunscreen (think my sister sent me this - bit tacky!)

2. Passing By - Zero 7 - (no idea what this is or why I have it! Quite chilled though!)

3. Allergic (To Thoughts Of Mother Earth) - Placebo (too aggressive, may have outgrown Placebo, quickly skipped)

4. Simple Twist Of Fate - Bob Dylan (ahhh, more like it on a rainy Madrid afternoon!)

5. Some Other Spring - Billie Holiday (hmmmm, lovely...)

2 out of 5 isn't bad. Very interesting exercise! Think I need to cull half my music collection though!

This is a fun question. I'm going to ask this one at work tomorrow.

Billie Jean - Michael Jackson
Let It Roll - Train
Baby Blue - Tremolo
Liberty - The Makem & Spain Brothers
All Around Us - Pat McGee Band

#6 is Winter Wonderland. I think maybe it's time to purge the Christmas music.

Never tried shuffle but I got:

1. Violin concerto in E -JS Bach
2. 00-(100) IUGN -(??some kind of beginner spanish thing)
3. The Number of the Beast -Iron Maiden (from 100 greatest guitar solos)
4. Sing for Absolution -Muse
5. Girl you have no Faith in Medicine -The White Stripes
6. I'll throw in the next: Hairy Trees -Goldfrapp (as #2 probably doesn't count).


Surprised I got so much music out -I've got tons of speech stuff.

Is there a prize for the first one to hit a Ben and Marina podcast?

They would decide that I was totally insecure as I felt I had to justify every song on my list ... and then write about that justification here... I think I need help!

Yes, love the last title on your list by the way, definitely worthy of a prize!

I don't have a shuffle, or whatever, either. But most mornings I pick a bunch of songs at random to listen to over breakfast. I must have been in a mellow(ish) mood because the top five from today are:

Gypsy Kings - Bamboleo
Mercedes Sosa - Gracias a la vida. (One of my favourites.)
Joaquin Sabina Y Ana Belin - Peces de Ciudad
Joaquin Sabina - Todavia una cancion de amor
Laura Pausini - Mi Libre Cancion.

Bamboleo always starts me off well though!!

Think I have redressed the lack of Spanish songs.
