If The Rake had a Jukebox!

So Pete and Liz have published their Pub Jukebox choices on their blogs. Sorry folks but my pub jukebox 'Rocks Out' way more than yours! This is what would be on it...

1) Wonderstuff - Mission Drive
Possibly the best first song to any album...ever!

2) Stone Roses - Fools Gold
This has to be just about one of the coolest songs ever made. Fact.

3) The Who - Won't Get Fooled Again
Rock track at the beginning of CSI Miami, one of my favourite shows and a great track.

4) Oasis - Cigarettes & Alcohol
Because in the nineties that's all it was about!

5) Pulp - Year 2000
It was either this or Parklife by Blur, both fantastic songs that are 'party-bangers'.

6) Gomez - Whipping Piccadilly 
One of my favourite bands and it was this or 'Get myself arrested' guitar riff won though.

7) Stereophonics - Handbags and Gladrags
 I love this song, it's a nice harmony and Kelly Jones has a great voice.

8) Bruce Springsteen - Jungleland
This song epitomises exactly what 'The Boss' is, a legendary musical, religious experience and Clarence Clemons Sax solo is just fantastic.

9) Manic Street Preachers - No Surface All Feeling
Another Welsh band that I listened to as an impressionable teen and I love this track.

10) Pearl Jam - Alive
I remember coming back from a pearl jam gig with my best mate and not having any voice left because they played this last as an encore, and what an encore!

Yup, they might be crass, they might not be classics but they are feel good party tunes and that's what you want for a pub. There will never be any music at The Rake as some people will never be able to agree on it, also it's too small for music offer. More's the pity.

What no Frank Sidebottom or Ted Chippington!

Rabidbarfly said...

Sidebottom? isn't he a cricketer?

Adrian Tierney-Jones said...

no that’s the fella with a bat for a head, Frank is the deceased paper mache chap who made a better fist of Being for the Benefit of Mr kite than the Beetroots or whatever Paul Macmanners’ band was called.

Sid Boggle said...

This ATJ chap speaks truth. That is the Frank whereof I spoke. Thank you...

Leigh said...

Dude - you just so got points with me about Pearl Jam and Springsteen. We'll discuss this further on the Twissup...assuming you are going?

@Leigh - need to book my train, also only going to the Manchester leg. So broke at the moment!
