Next week's themes...

Bryan Burnett | 14:54 UK time, Sunday, 27 December 2009


Happy Holidays from the Get It On team to all our listeners. It was so lovely to hear from so many of you on Christmas Day. We had great fun in the studio and thanks to Miss Babs and her surplus tinsel there was a fairly festive atmosphere. I was kind of sad to be leaving the house to go to work but I have to say I loved doing the show and it was a real thrill to be in charge of playing the music for your Christmas day celebrations.

IMG_0765.JPGProducer Babs surprised me on the day with many gifts including a juggling set. She said her and the team spent every night juggling texts, email, songs, downloads and my many demands that they thought it was about time I realized what their job was like!! Well, I hope all my jugglers know how much I appreciate their hard work throughout the year.

As we head towards the new decade we'll be counting down the previous decades all week on Get It On...

We kick off on Monday with your 70s selections. From Abba to Anarchy In The UK, from Teenage Kicks to T-Rex. Dig out those flares or stick or on your old Clash t shirt as we revisit disco, punk and glam.

What was acceptable in the 80s for you? Duran Duran, The Smiths, or Wham? From Simple Minds to Smalltown Boy...the fashion may have been mingin' but the music was magic.

From The Proclaimers to The Pet Shop Boys - what do you remember about the 90s? Whether the highlight of your decade was Bittersweet Symphony or Blur, why not help me put together the ultimate 90s night.

Finally, we count down to Hogmanay by looking back at the past ten years. What stood out for you and who were your discoveries? Was it the Artic Monkeys or Amy Winehouse ? And will we still be listening to Lady Gaga and The Ting Tings in ten years time? From Seven Nation Army to Shine let's have your suggestions for the best songs of the past decade...

As always, you can leave your suggestions on the blog or email us direct.

    The best decade for music was the 60's. Since then, there's been a continuous, steady decline.

    what's a smyphony?

  • Comment number 2.

    It's what we hear when they torture us with Morrissey and the Smyphs.

  • Comment number 3.

    Did we steal the theme from Radio 2 or was it pilfered frae us by them?

    Only difference, they're including the sixties. Mon. to Fri. 14:00 - 17:00

    Also, Paul Gambaccini is doing a two-part special on the Beatles.

    Wed. and Thurs. 17:00 - 18:00

    Oh dear, "all" acquaintances attempting to operate below the threshold of consciousness by the employing of stimuli insufficiently intense to produce a discrete sensation but often designed to be intense enough to influence the mental processes or the behaviour of the individual...

    2010 the year of 'change'...

  • Comment number 20.

    DC - surely you will get a mention! After all you are our most prolific contributor!

  • Comment number 21.

    This comment was removed because the moderators found it broke the house rules. Explain.

  • Comment number 22.

    My fav decade is the 70's when I first got into music although I'd imagine to have been a teenager in the 60's would have been pretty exciting. My first single was mama weer all crazee now / Slade and I suppose glam was my first love even though it wouldn't get a mention in my top ten genres now. So much great stuff in the 70's from Floyd to Philly, Disco, the great singer songwriters, classic rock and a decade full of guilty pleasures etc etc.

    I could compose a list that would fill the blog so I'm just gonna go with one song.

    I didn't know it in the 70's, only having discovered it later but it is my favourite recording of all time. It also ties in with my favourite musical memory of 2009. Hampden Park in July, next to a honeymooning couple from Seattle who had seen The Boss 5 times but had never heard him sing their song live, so when he did the girl just bubbled like a wean.

    So from the 70's (and I know you played it in the summer but Bryan it's time to hear it again)

    Thunder Road / Bruce Springsteen !975 Live from Hammersmith.

    Infinitely superior to the studio version.

  • Comment number 23.

    Very happy to endorse Thunder Road (#22)

    I also forgot to include two great sonsgs/artists in my 70s list:

    What Can I Say - Boz Scaggs
    The boys are back in town - Thin Lizzy


    Tainted love - Soft Cell
    I should have known better - Jim Diamond
    A good heart - Feargal Sharkey
    Caravan of love - Housemartins
    Dreamtime - Daryl Hall
    I wanna dance with somebody - Whitney Houston
    The river - Springsteen
    Copperhead Road - Steve Earle
    Dear darling - Mary Margaret O'Hara
    Rose of Cimarron - Emmylou Harris
    Walk of life - Dire Straits

    More to folow


  • Comment number 24.

    Bryan, Thank you for playing my request on Christmas Eve. You have a real talent for making my wife cry. (In a good way.)

    Mon. This theme requires self-control.

    LAY DOWN - The Strawbs

    THE JARROW SONG - Alan Price

    ON THE HUNT - Lynyrd Skynyrd

    PSYCHOMODO - Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel




  • Comment number 25.

    How did we get this far without anyone commenting on how welll Mrs Wallace looks in the photo - clearly maintaining the running / cycling. Good on you.

  • Comment number 26.

    #22 Paolo - have to say I disagree. I don't like that version at all to me Springsteen has by that point lost his "romantic vision" tied up in the promotional hype and the start of the legal problems Bruce sounds defeatist and certainly not on the verge of "pulling out of here to win".

    But that is the great thing - music means and sounds entirely different to each listener. Which is why I find the "I hate" posts on here a bit tedious.

    All of which reminds me of a potential theme, stolen from High Fidelity, which is

    Side One, Track One.

  • Comment number 27.


    May I refer you to comment #10

  • Comment number 28.

    SG thanks - would comment if I understood it.

  • Comment number 29.

    Yeah, I was hoping you would enlighten me. Oh, well; never mind!


    'Mr. Banker' - Lynyrd Skynyrd

    'Next' - Sensational Alex Harvey Band

    'Soul in Chains' - Sensational Alex Harvey Band

    'The Tale of the Giant Stone Eater' - Sensational Alex Harvey Band

    I could just go on and on, but I must go do some work.

    Should be a good show! It is, after all, pre-Smyphs.

    Tony Blackburn and R. Cilla are making the sixties sound boring. Should have gone with Dave Lee Travis........

    'Since You Went Away' - Elkie Brooks

    That's mah last furr the day. Ah'm pure feeneeshed!!

  • Comment number 40.

    We'll agree to disagree. Yeah it was his first uk concert and there was a certain amount of hype but nothing compared to the hype that surrounded him subsequently. Not sure what you mean by his romantic vision but his voice never sounded better and as for sounding defeatist, na you've totally lost me there.

  • Comment number 41.

    Would love to have been there Paolo.....

  • Comment number 42.

    #39 nae wonder... swingin' like yon

  • Comment number 43.

  • Comment number 44.

    I went see The Clash at the Apollo in 78 with my

    'Local Girls', 'Hotel Chambermaid', 'Hold Back The Night'.

  • Comment number 48.

    Absolutely brilliant suggestions from the bloggers tonight!

  • Comment number 53.


    'For You' - Judie Tzuke

    'God Will' - Lyle Lovett

    'Big Boned Gal' - kd lang

    'Fifteen Minutes' - Kirsty MacColl

  • Comment number 54.

    I forgot what day it was and missed tonight's show: looking at the tracklist, I was surprised to see the inclusion of Simon & Garfunkel's 'The Boxer' - released as a single in the previous decade.


    Much of the 80's past me by musically - young family, different priorities, I guess: but a few things stick out, not least that it was a very successful time for Scottish bands.

    Of those, Love and Money were a favourite of mine, James Grant is a fantastic songwriter. On the 'Dogs in The Traffic' album is the truly excellent:

    'You're Not The Only One' -

    - about the 'living death' aspect of a relationship already heading for terminal decline.Country fans like Bryan will love this - why a mainstream country artist has never picked up on it is a mystery to me.

    Much of the early part of the decade was given over to synths and drum machines - Talk Talk were outstanding, I thought - and I'd love to hear 'I Believe In You' from the East of Eden album

    Otherwise, some standout tracks are:

    Kissing with Confidence - Will Powers
    Joan of Arc - OMD
    Sledgehammer - Peter Gabriel
    This Woman's Work -Kate Bush
    Human Racing - Nick Kershaw (great Stevie Wonder impersonation)
    Karma Chameleon - Culture Club

    and I suppose the sound and the sentiment of the decade is summed up in

    Together In Electric Dreams - Phil Oakey & Georgio Moroder

    regardez youse


    PS I'm feeling paranoid that the GIO team have fallen out with me - maybe it was that daft Exorcist joke - didn't play any of my Xmas suggestions and I'm crushed, of course - still, I had a fabulously happy Xmas and was chuffed to see my name mentioned in the GIO Xmas blog poem.

    McGonnagal would be proud of youse all.

  • Comment number 55.

    Just caught up with tonights show... some great tunes and stories

    memories came flooding back when my track was played thanks

    hope the rest of the week is as good


    (can do the Bold to learn the wee blue link )

  • Comment number 56.



    I need to pick your brains... Was the Barry Blue song the Slosh or the Alleycat?

    N.B. Never Slosh in a frozen carpark...


  • Comment number 57.

    Henri but it was on the Bridge Over troubled Water lp, the best selling lp of the 70's, which was the context of inclusion so seems fair enough.

  • Comment number 58.

    As a child of the 60s and a teenager of the 70s I have equal affection for both decades, the 80s were a bit of a blur due to marriage and babies but I do remember the following in particular:-

    Do You Really Want to Hurt Me - Culture Club

    Somethings Gotten Hold of My Heart - Almond & Pitney

    All Around the World - Lisa Stansfield

    Paul from Ayr

  • Comment number 59.


    Definitely a Slosh

    I never sloshed in a carpark!! frozen nor dry (or anyplace else for that matter)

  • Comment number 62.

    great show last night.

    No one track standing out head and shoulders above the rest. Spent a lot of the 80's discovering more stuff from the 70's but there were still a few good tunes out. Any of these would be good

    Against the Wind / Bob Seger
    Bought the album in London in 1980 sleeping on the floor of my pals flat who had hifi speakers so big we thought they were radiators.

    Bad Influence / Robert Cray Band
    Got it as part of a free 3 track EP given away with a music magazine. Had never heard of him before.

    Someone like You / Van Morrison
    My fav mushy Van song

    The Cutter / Runrig
    Attended some very energetic concerts in the 80's

    Ghosts of Dachau / Style Council
    Written by Weller after he'd visited the WW11 concentration camp

    Broken Land / The Adventures
    Much underrated band

    Dirty Old Town / Pogues
    used to DJ in a pub in Coatbridge and noone would leave till this was played. Last song every night three nights a week for six months.

    I Can't Tell You Why / Eagles
    Fav Eagles Song

    Let's Clean Up The Ghetto / Philadelphia International allstars
    Can you squeeze in the full 8 minutes plus version....Na didn't think so!

    Mr Roboto / Styx
    I was a big AOR fan in early 80's. Never missed Paul Gambaccinis American countdown.

    and finally a couple of songs which were a huge radio hits circa 1987 but never dented the charts. Both superb driving songs.
    Gone Forever / Cry Before Dawn
    Years Go By / Stan Campbell

  • Comment number 63.

    Great songs PP, especially Van. I had been intending to include In The Gaeden, my favourite Van track, but reckoned chances of being played very small, but Someone Like You woulod be very playable!

  • Comment number 64.

    It's just a lull Henri, we all fire a few blanks from time to time. Come to think of it, no sign of JFE or the Captain so far this week. Anything you want to tell us Henri? :-)

    I'll second the Go Betweens, great track. Need to check out 'In the Garden'. Not familiar with it.

    And a second too for Judie Tzuke and don't check out any recent footage on you tube. Trust me, it's best just to remember.....

  • Comment number 65.

    Tues. ENGLAND'S GLORY - Ian Dury & The Blockheads

    ONLY WOMEN BLEED - Elkie Brooks

    From Elkie's album NO MORE THE FOOL a stunning version of the Alice Cooper classic.

  • Comment number 66.

    #60, fellow non blue-linkers are welcome to use the sign-off

    #61 Scotch, thanks for the tips on how to do etc but I'm still no sure if I understand. What I want to kain is, why, in this technologically advanced age, can the blog not simply allow us tae highlight the word and select bold fae the menu?

    #62 good songs yet again Paolo. I think that the blog influence will once again be greatest tonight, but fear that the facebook contribution will take over for the 90s & 00's (an observation which is of course a generalisation about the relative age of those in each camp.

    By the way, are there any other pedants out there who believe that 2010 marks the END of this decade and that we should not celebrate the start of the second decade of this century until 2011?



  • Comment number 67.

    I'm a pedant who celebrated the real millennium more than the media millennium on the assumption that there was more than 999 years in a millennium, but I could be wrong. You know how school syllabuses (syllabi?) have changed so much since we were edumacated.

  • Comment number 68.

    Ahem (deep clearing of the throat) Should be 'there were more' not 'There was more'.....

  • Comment number 69.

    Ah...memories...left school, briefly unemployed, got a job, left home for a few years, great friends and great times, some not so great, settled down in own home by the end of this decade:
    'Little' list:
    Kane Gang - 'Closest Thing To Heaven'
    Human League - 'Christine'
    Bob Marley - 'Redemption Song'
    Echo and the Bunnymen' - 'Villiers Terrace'

    Tina Turner - 'Let's stay together'
    Clint Eastwood and General Saint - 'Stop that train'
    Squeeze - 'Hourglass'
    Rick James - 'Super Freak'
    Saw Springsteen on the 'Born On The USA' tour...such a frenzy to get exciting to see him. Missed watching Live Aid because my best friend got married that day. Became a fan of The Proclaimers and Del Amitri from first hearing them.

  • Comment number 70.

  • Comment number 72.

    #64 - have you heard Judy Tzuke on Morcheeba's 'Enjoy The Ride'?

    The video is a cartoon, so you can still hear the voice and remember - astonishingly beautiful track - up there with K D Lang's version of Helpless.

    I don't know how to post the link thingy, but it's easy to find on You Tube. Warmly recommended to all.

    #64 Well, hopefully it's just a lull, as you say - no idea what's become of The Captain but

    Eighties Blues;

    I used to think that I was depressed during the eighties because I was married. Thanks to Bryan and Babs, I now realise I was depressed during the eighties because the music on the radio was dire. I shall now throw myself upon the benevolent mercy of the mother of my child, in the hope of reconciliation...

    Come back, darlin'!

    It wisnae' you!

    It wisnae' me!

  • Comment number 84.

    #82 Hivnae heard this week`s shows yet, so I cant comment SG (still on the Xmas Day special which so far is purgatory and shouldn`t have been allowed to carry the GIO tag. KTEL`s NTWIC Xmas would have been better and could have been hosted by anyone, if anyone at all had been needed. Plus `our hero` was a bit skiech was he no?), however, I am a bit vexed not to have been able to contribute a Joe-sized list for both the 70s and 80s as they are the top decades for me - sentimentally speaking.

    Its oft been said that Bon Jovi songs are written by a computer which has been fed Springsteen and Bad Company lyrics, but does anything beat the cliches included in Shaky`s Xmas hit?

Keep up the good work.

    Best wishes for 2010: I hope it is a very good year for one and all.


  • Comment number 87.

    I propose that the new Friday slot should be devoted to Country music.

    1) We don't hear enough Country music on GIO.

    2) Even if we did, there's no such thing as too much Country music.

    3) As it's a request show, we can have fun messing with Ricky Ross's playlist.

    4) Bryan can learn to line dance whilst working. (Kinda like the Slosh, wi' Cowboy boots and Stetsons).

    The 90's kinda passed me by a bit....was at that intermediate age when music wasn't as good as it used to be , before my kids were old enough to introduce me to some great music in the noughties. However some stand out tracks that spring to mind...

    Under the Bridge / Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Just a classic

    Laid / James
    (seconding Joe. Best short song of the 90's)

    What do you want from me / Monaco
    New Order Spin Off with a new direction. Great sing along anti love song.

    She's so High / Tal Bachman
    Randy Bachman's boy with an uplifting wee tune

    WEDNESDAY - 90s: At first, I thought the 90s has passed me by, became a Mother in 93 and the rest of the decade was just so busy...but:

    Aerosmith - 'Pink' is a great song with a great video
    My favourite album of the 90s was Summerteeth by Wilco..'Can't Stand It' is the best track.

    I love Bjork's 'Bachelorette' too.

    ...And Portishead's 'Sour Times'.

    You could play 'Killing Me Softly' by The Fugees (but just the "one time").

    Madonna released 'Ray of Light'

    Gomez - 'Bring it On'.

    Garbage - 'Milk'

    Eminem - 'My Name Is'

    Del Amitri released lots of good music in this decade ('Tell Her This')

    The daughter used to sing 'CU When U Get There' by Coolio on car journeys. Her first concert was S Club 7 (Bring It All Back).

    No More "I Love You's" - Annie Lennox
    The Day We Caught The Train - Ocean Colour Scene
    Walkaway - Cast
    Friday I'm In Love - The Cure
    Connected - Stereo MC's
    Zombie - The Cranberries
    On A Plain - Nirvana

    No point in requesting anything from David Gilmour's Live in Gdansk album, the best album of the naughties because it won't even be considered, so I'll second Joe's suggestion of:

    "Country Girl" - Primal Scream


  • Comment number 95.


    'Gossip' - Michael Marra

    'My Baby Don't Tolerate' - Lyle Lovett

    THURSDAY - This decade I rediscovered my love of music...although, going back through the decades this week, I realise I'd never really lost it.

    Raphael Saadiq - 'Sure Hope You Mean It'

    Beyonce feat Jay-Z - 'Crazy In Love'

    Antony and The Johnsons - 'Hope There's Someone' (not everyone's taste but I think it's quite beautiful)

    Amy Winehouse - 'Back to Black'

    Best Album for me was The Seldom Seen Kid...'The Fix' featured Richard Hawley, another great artiste this decade

    Coldplay - 'God Put A Smile Upon Your Face'

    Eminem - 'Lose Yourself' from 8 mile

    Paolo Nutini - 'These Streets'

    GIO has been so helpful in introducing me to good music, old and new. I've even made some good new friends through it, so thanks and all the best for 2010 to you all.

    Re: Radiohead

    You were right, I was wrong. I enjoyed 'Creep' tonight.

  • Comment number 99.

    #96/98 well., i don't much care for Radiohead, either - too smug, self satidfied for me - getting like Yes at their peak, but i did enjoy Creep tonight, as weel.... but to concur with Julie's comments about the programme bringing things to your attention -that Paula Cole track is absolutely luminous - loved it.
