Favourite Music Artist – X/Y/Z

I just thought I’d end it here. There’s not really enough artists in the X section to warrant a devoted post to. Anyway, here goes.


Senses Working Overtime

Y – You Am I

Forget It Sister (hidden bonus track on their album Hourly, Daily released in 1996)

Neil Young

Harvest Moon

Weird Al Yankovic


Z – Warren Zevon (only for this one song)

Werewolves Of London

Favourite Music Artist – W

Three here:

Wings (I’ve chosen Silly Love Songs as a sample)

Stevie Wonder (I chose George Michael’s version of “As” with Mary J Blige as…it’s an excellent cover)

(The) Who – early Who stuff though and I wouldn’t watch them live now, they’re too past it.

Favourite Music Artist – U

I’m sure all of those who know me will know that there was only one choice (of the limited choices you can make under “U”) I could make here…


I wanted to choose all my favourite U2 songs through the years, so instead of clogging up my blog with a load of U2 YouTube videos in posts, I’ve been working on a pages system to add my faves.

To view, just point the mouse to the menu link “U2” just below the blog picture banner. A drop down menu will show favourite pages listed for the 80s, 90s and 00s. Just click to view them.

If not, click the links here…

Favourite Music Artist – T

Just the two here…and I’m into both of them on and off, but of all the “T’s”, I like them most.


K T Tunstall

Bit of a Scottish theme going on with this one.

You know what’s coming next…
(visual clue below)

Favourite Music Artist – S

This is such a HUGE category. This is my absolute slim down version. These are the ones I had to mention. Why are there so many “S’ groups/artists?!

Anyway, in no particular order…

Simple Minds

The Smiths

Split Enz

Favourite Music Artist – Q

This one is a no-brainer. There wasn’t really much choice for Q, so it HAD to be…

Queen! My fave Queen song – Radio Ga Ga

Favourite Music Artist – P

This is a little bit more drawn out than I hoped, but it’s probably better that it IS like this anyway (the whole fave music acts thing, I mean). I realised some time back that I made a mistake with “I”, adding Iggy Pop to my I list, when rightfully, he should be here. But anyway…

My first P is…Pulp. They were the epitome of Brit Pop on the mid 90’s (even though they’d been around for YEARS already). Loved them. Love “Common People” and bought “Disco 2000” as a single back then. Love Jarvis Cocker as well, continuing the whole “tall-streak-of-piss-cool-geek” thing I’m on atm. He recently wrote a song called “Running The World” with the chorus line “c*nts are still running the world”.

Pulp – Trees

My second choice is Pet Shop Boys. I’ve never really bought any of their stuff, but I love a lot of it.

Pet Shop Boys – Love Comes Quickly

Finally, a mention to… Power Station. A short-lived supergroup with John and Andy Taylor from Duran Duran, Tony Thompson on drums, and Robert Palmer as singer. I thought their sound was f*cking awesome! I bought the album at the time (circa 1985) and played it to death. Tony Thompson’s drumming was just killer! He did a lot of work for Bowie as well.

Power Station – Get It On

Obviously a YouTube clip can not reveal the powerhouse of sound, but it was ROCKIN’, trust me!!!

Favourite Music Artist – O

It was a tough choice. Not much was screaming out to me under “O” and then I saw William Orbit and thought “Yeah, why not”.

He’s done a lot of production stuff, but he has done his own stuff too. I love his version of Barber’s Adagio for Strings, but I chose this piece for the video.

William Orbit’s reinterpretation of John Cage’s In A Landscape.
