Let's try again then...

Simon Mayo | 09:27 UK time, Wednesday, 17 November 2010

Well where were we then? Good list of daughter tunes coming through yesterday and then The Royal Engagement turned up and it seemed a good idea to play songs with dilly-dilly in there somewhere. But we're back on with DAUGHTERS today so you can re-submit if you wish but we do still have your suggestions from yesterday of course. So unless pesky breaking news gets in the way, DAUGHTERS it is.

The royal wedding is fun to observe. I think most people are pleased for William And Kate, look forward to the wedding and then move on to talk about other stuff. But 24 hour news means that's not allowed to happen and those that REALLY hate it and those that REALLY love it are over-exposed and over-heard. And the many republicans of the nation's newsrooms will have plenty of time to grumble about their own paper/radio station/tv channel's coverage. Time to play more tunes I think.

What we need is a historian to put all this into some kind of perspective, so step forward Michael Wood who has a new TV series and book on the history of England. He's on from 6.

Have a smiley and jaunty Wednesday, see you at 5.05

    Lazy so and so that I am - copy and paste away.....

    Morning All,

    Apologies if I duplicate here, but I haven't got time to read through at the moment.
    Can you play, either, Father and Daughter by Paul Simon or Sweetpea by Paul Weller please.
    I have to join on this one as I regularly play these to Ciara - my beautiful six year old who could do with a boost yesterday (!) as she has just been told that she is having her tonsils out, following her 10th batch of tonsillitis.

    Hope is well in Blogland and that a solution for the Fox troubles, is swift in it's arrival.

    Could I push my luck and ask for Fox in the Snow by the inimitable Belle and Sebastien please?

    Cheers

    Morning All,

    Suggest as yesterday am

    'Love Child' The Supremes

    'Thank Heaven for Little Girls' Maurice Chevalier (shared with John B-G)

    'Something Stupid' by father and daughter duet Frank & Nancy Sinatra

    Have a good day everybody

    Alex-Girl

    Morning all

    I'll reiterate my request yesterday. I see Mr Ripley has snuck in there before me today, so I'll second his choice:

    FATHER & DAUGHTER by Paul Simon

    Well done to all menshees last night, especially Deevs - I did wonder if you were going to get a hat trick of mentions!

    SHE’S LEAVING HOME - THE BEATLES


    MIRROR IN THE BATHROOM – THE BEAT


    GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN – CYNDI LAUPER

    Hello blogsters.

    How about
    Bring your daughter to the Slaughter -=Iron Maiden
    Coal Miner's Daughter - Loretta Lynn
    The Blower's Daughter - Damian Rice

    and because of my Bon Jovi obsession - the solo song by Richie Sambora called Ava's Eyes is well worth a listen.

    Morning Simon, team and Blogpoppets

    #22 Blimey, Alex H!

    Anyway, where were we? Just so there's no confusion, my C&P suggestions are:

    SARAH by Thin Lizzy (my GD's name, incidentally)

    DAUGHTERS by John Mayer

    COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER by Loretta Lynn

    BABY LOVE by Diana Ross

    Or, for the hat:

    SAVE ALL YOUR KISSES FOR ME by Brotherhood of Man

    And can I also second Alex_G-B's 3 word Wednesday at #9. Whoop whoop! Although I am currently almost voiceless, so it is going to be an interesting day. Maybe if I sound all husky and sexy the callers will pledge more money .

    Morning again! Think I suggested "Grace" or "Party Girl" by U2 yesterday and I believe they are good for another go! I too won't be around much today as I am on a training course this afternoon entitled "Implementing the new clarity ISA's". It will be as boring as it sounds.

    Gordon & Emma

    #31 Deevs - I' really wishing I'd been brave enough, and had enough holiday days left, to join you all at CiN. I'll certainly be there next year (assuming there is one). I'm getting really excited for you all and looking forward to hearing all about it!

    Happy lunchtime, Bloggists!

    How about:
    * Miss Jackson - Outkast
    * Woman - Wolfmother
    * She's Always a Woman - Fyfe Dangerfield

    The "Mighty Maiden" would at least fit in with the midweek mosh, if it is a little, errr.. inappropriate, yes "inappropriate", that's the word.

    TIE YOUR MOTHER DOWN - Queen

    #34 Alex - surely that needs to be the CiN ARF opener?

  • Comment number 41.

    #28 Deebee - you really need to stop giving personal favours to all those lucky anglers

    #24 MTF - Yes, after yesterday's topsy turvy blogfest, it's all very sedate today (apart from Deebee's extracurricular activities).

    So I have a question for everybody:

    What NEW music are people listening to? And more importantly, where/how are you finding things you like?

    This question was prompted by Mr Ripley's mention of Belle & Sebastian, who are certainly not new, but who I only recently discovered for myself.

    I'll kick things off by saying at the moment I'm listening to Howie Day, and Matt Costa (Songs we Sing 2006 is excellent) - both been going for a few years, but really well produced, a bit like Jason Mraz meets Jack Johnson and John Mayer.

    Would love to hear other bloggers' new favourites.

    Deebee!!!! Now, where have I heard that one before ..... tweet tweet!

    Mr B Good, I am currently head over heels in love with the "new" Fyfe Dangerfield album. Nic bought it for me for my birthday back in August and it waso nly last Saturday that I prized it out of the CD player in the Mighty Micra as I fancied a bit of Rat Pack Swing for a change.

    I saw Fyfe with The Guillimots a few years back and thought he had "something" and his new album is just marvellous!

    #41 I have to say most of my recent 'discoveries' have been entirely down to Mr M. Two in particular are Tired Pony, whose album I downloaded after hearing them on Drivetime earlier in the year, and Jeff Beck, who was also on the show. Very different styles, but both brilliant!

    #41 "New" music I've bought in the last couple of weeks:

    The Coast - Courtyard Hounds
    Robert Plant - Band of Joy
    I and Love and You - The Avett Brothers

    Title track of the latter is possibly my favourote song of the last year. "New" in quotes as it isn't all new to the minute - you have to leave some scope for presents :-).

    Newly acquired older music - three of Percy's back catalogue including a CD replacement for my old vinyl copy of the Honeydrippers Volume 1.

  • Comment number 51.



    On another musical note (haha - see what I did there!?), last night at writing class we were set the task of writing an autobiographical piece of prose, based around ten songs/pieces of music that transport us back to a certain period in our lives. The tutor said she didn't want lists of "My Top Ten", more a case of Tracks Of My Years, summing us up via the music that has shaped us.

    I can't wait to get stuck in as music has always been very important to me.

    Good afternoon Everyone and, of course, Simon and the Team,

    Blimmin' 'eck it's been manic round these parts of late. Barely time to lurk never mind contribute. Anyhoo, I hope you're all fine and dandy. I see some new peeps are joining in - warmest welcomes to each and every one - hope you can all stick around and join in the fun.

    As per usual, no suggestions for me - mind went completely blank with no hope of any inspiration until about 3.00 am tomorrow when i'll waken with a start and think of an appropriate choon.

    Deebee - You poorly wee scone - hope you're well enough to enjoy yourself on Friday my lovely.

    #33 - Tortie - Likewise, I'm wishing I'd volunteered to help out this year. Perhaps, and this is always assuming there's a music marathon next year, if we get ourselves sorted out, we could travel together? Might be a little less daunting then.

    No time, no time. Tempest is fujiting. So quick in and out, and a more relaxed return later. Song suggestion...

    'Daughter Door' by Creedence Clearwater Revival.

    I do realise that most people will probably more easily recognise this fantastic tune as 'Door To Door', but that dunna fit the theme.

    Hi JbG,

    In answer to your question: I'm always a bit late to new music nowadays.

    I used to get all my recommendations from John Peel (one of his best- and if you like B&S, you'll love these guys-was 'Hefner', I recommend starting with 'Breaking God's Heart'), or Radcliffe and Lard, Stuart Maconie, Steve lemaq (sp?) and Jo Whiley.
    Nowadays - it's from Radciffe and Maconie or the odd bit of 6music that I get to listen to.

    Any recommendations gratefully received...

    Aw thanks you lovely ladies. Work and home have been a bit mental of late. My boss is working on a specification for a garage to be converted into a vets which has involved a lot of copying and pasting - perhaps I could be Queen Copier and Paster? Home has involved a lot of dashing here there and everywhere getting the boys to their various extra curriculars! There was a time when the boys didn't have anything on after school but at the mo there is something on every evening plus footie on a Saturday and Sunday.

    Go on Deevs - get those spreadsheets sorted or you may not get out to play on Friday ;) x

    Deebee, Deevs, Alex, Rips,

    Thanks for sharing - will try them out on Spotify in the coming days, starting with Hefner this afternoon (I work from home!). Deevs - agree with you, Fyfe Dangerfield is good stuff. I find the "Related Artists" thing on there a bit hit-and-miss.

    Maybe once in a while, when it's a bit quiet on here - like a Friday - it might be nice to sign off with "Listening to ________", like a mood message.

    No pressure. I know everybody is busy this week with CiN or other things like spreadsheets and copying and pasting, and jumping

  • Comment number 80.

    JbG - meant to say that I am in a rediscovering mode at the moment so am digging out old music that I haven't listened to in yonks - the Ella & Louis collaborations, Alan Parsons Project and Etta James are the most recent. Like Rips, the introduction to new material tends to come from Radcliffe and Maconie although I also listen to the "specialist" shows at 7pm each evening and have often discovered new pleasures that way.

    Him indoors teaches music and performance at a local college and often comes home with artists or tracks that the students have recommended.

    Nice discussion suggestion!

  • Comment number 81.

    Alex - on old music, last Friday night after a few glasses of the red grown up grape juice, Nic and I turned off the tellybox and rediscovered some of our old vinyl collections. It really was lovely - he played me tracks that meant something to him, and likewise I subjected him to some of my finer yoof moments and a bit of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac.

    Music was my first love .....

  • Comment number 82.

    Thanks Alex and Deevs.

    Nice to hear your choices. I've started asking people I know what music they're listening to - amazing what you learn, about new music and about the people based on the answers they give. (It also beats talking about house prices / schools / strictly factor out of here!

  • Comment number 83.

    #81 We do that too! And with the Man being a musician, over the years we have been together I have been introduced to so much music that would have otherwise passed me by. So far, the only music I have said I don't like is Allan Holdsworth. Just don't get it. If you haven't come across him, Allan is a jazz guitarist, originally from Yorkshire but has lived in the US for many years. Mr P goes to see him whenever he is in this country. Sounds like cats yowling to me. On the other hand, I have developed a passion for Scott Henderson / Tribal Tech. If you like guitar led blues with a modern twist, Scott's "Tore Down House" album is a must. Includes a great track featuring Thelma Houston called "You Hate Me" - an anti-love song with just superb lyrics.

    How's the spreadsheet coming along Deevs? At the same speed as my project plan??!!

    I absolutely love music - it really is the soundtrack to my life. I've always got a tune running through my head. I love most types - can't really get into rap or opera, but apart from that I'll listen to more or less anything, providing it's good quality. I love the idea of asking people what music they listen to as an ice-breaker, John. I'll have to try that next time I'm with a group of people I haven't met before.

    Hang on a minute - that will be this Friday!

  • Comment number 86.

    having re-read your post John, you were actually talking about asking people you DO know! I still think what I said is a good idea though.

  • Comment number 87.

    #85 I'm the same, Deebee. My Mum's family were very musical and all played an instrument. My Mum always had the radio on and sang along so I grew up in an environment where music was very important. My Mum is just great - she is open to listening to different music and has recently discovered Led Zep (and I have to ask her to turn the volume down!).

  • Comment number 88.

    Have just popped back. Just read CLP's post- I haven't been this excited since forever!! Wonder if Simon will do the same?

    It is lovely to see the blog buzzing (not sure about the jumping), talking about the music. I am guilty of being stuck in the past as far as my preferred music goes (late 70's/80's), although listening to Drivetime has made me start to listen to more recent artists, so thanks Simon.

    So is it mankini's, swimsuits and flip flops on Friday for our Tropical telephone marathon, Deevs?

    We always had music in our house. My grandmother played the piano, her brother was the church organist and played at my wedding, and my Dad was in a reasonably successful Skiffle group. Hence, the occasional Lonnie Donegan suggestion from me on this blog! I have lovely memories of my Dad singing to me and my sister. He also sang to my children.

    #88 LOL!

    I come from a musical family too. We always had music at home, and at one point both my parents, my brother and I were all singing in the same choir. A sort of Kentish von Trap family! In fact my brother is a composer although he has yet to make any money at it. My parents' preference was for classical music, although I've noticed that since we lost my Dad, my Mum has been open to listening to a more eclectic mix. My son is very musical too - he has perfect pitch, which I am very jealous about!

    Who said it was going to be quiet today? We're getting close to the century, and the show hasn't started yet!

    Afternoon Blogsters

    I'll chip in with two of my suggestions from yesterday:

    Coal Miner's Daughter, Loretta Lynn

    Sweet Caroline, Neil Diamond (written about JFK's daughter).

    Re. new music (or new to me), have a listen to Sia if you get the chance. She's a wee bit kooky (she was on Jools Holland dressed as a flower, as I recall) but she has a fine line in spanking tunes. 'The Girl You Lost to Cocaine' is a good starting point.

    A quick poop back to share my senior moment with you. I just hit "send" on an email that went to a number of colleagues including senior managers. It was only as I hit the button, that I realised that I had signed the email "Alex-Girl"!! Big whoops! Am now waiting for the questions that will inevitably follow!
