Playlist 06.02.09

Stuart Bailie | 17:14 UK time, Sunday, 8 February 2009

I can't say that I've played any Cyndi Lauper on the show before, never mind a Cyndi segueway. Now that I've just typed in the concept, it sounds even more horrific. But there I was on Friday, batting from 'True Colours' to 'Time After Time'. There was some rationale in the choice because the former song was covered by the reliably engmatic AneBrun from Norway, while Miles Davis and his contrary trumpet dealt with the latter.

Afterwards, a friend chastised me for playing a mid-Seventies Eric Clapton live track. This may have been in dubious taste for the old punks, but to hear a man wracked by drugs and opiates, bleating out 'Presence Of The Lord' was too intense to ignore.
