Modes Of Transport
Glorious Sunday afternoons in mid-October. Lying on the grass in the park, finding an amazing sweet spot, with jets flying overhead and the unmistakeable rumbling of Piccadilly line tubes beneath. Like a transport sandwich. It's a wonderful park. Ducks, coots and geese on the pond. An amazing kiddie play area that I'm jealous I'm too old to play on. Squirrels everywhere. Loud drums coming over from the community centre that emerge during the quiet parts of the songs I'm listening to. Reality gently imposing.
Sunshine, the Sunday papers, blue sky, grapes, mango smoothie, and music of course. My new iPod has this Genius button thing. You select a song, and it builds a playlist around it. Which is a bit spooky, because it's really good, and works with the mood you're in. Like it can read your mind. I'd been humming Starman. So that seemed the logical place to start...
1. David Bowie - Starman
2. The Cure - Lovecats
3. Mott The Hoople - All The Young Dudes
4. Lou Reed - Satellite Of Love
5. The Kinks - You Really Got Me
6. The La's - There She Goes
7. The Stranglers - Golden Brown
8. Sex Pistols - Anarchy In The UK
9. Pulp - Common People
10. T-Rex - Get In On
Bang a gong, get it on!
