Before I depart into the wilds of Cumbria for the day I thought I'd leave you with the epic Suede song Still Life. An amazing song, with a stunning use of orchestra. Beautifully melancholic.

Brel's magnificent work is, for me, taken to a new level by Bowie's remarkable performance at the Hammersmith Odeon in July 1973. Having just turned 14, I had seen the tour just a month earlier, and was blown away by this extraordinary performer.

The added poignancy is, of course, that just a short while later Bowie ended the concert by *killing off* his greatest ever creation. He truly prempts one of music's greatest ever shocks and surprises as he sings of Ziggy Stardust's death. Amazing stuff.
I'm a big Brel fan, Tony. And there are many artists who have covered his songs that I'm grateful to for introducing this amazing artist to me - Scott Walker, Marc Almond, Bowie and ol' Dusty Springfield herself.

Dear Sir,

It was incompetence, though I can assure you that every effort is being made that no song will be missed in the future (especially those of a shoe-gazing or new romantic nature).

Yours blithely

A few hours earlier from me today. I can't stand having all day to make the decision, so it's an impulse decision of what's on the CD in the kitchen.

Roy Harper - When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease

...and it's a seven minute euphamism about death involving cricket. I think it wouild be harder to have done it the other way round.

Top track, sir (particularly the Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve remix) and one that had been an intended future entry from me - so much kudos/commiseration*!

Lee Carey wrote:The best song from the sixties from the most subversive group from the 60's...

I love The Monkees, but most of my favourite songs of theirs are Nesmith-penned - 'Tapioca Tundra', 'Listen to the Band', 'You Just May be the One'...

Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. is my favourite album by them.

Anyway, if someone was to wander up to me in the street and shout 'What's so good about pop music then? Eh? EH?!?' into my fizzog, I'd calmly answer 'My dear sir, it sometimes sounds like this...'

Doves - The Cedar Room

When I was travelling around the US in 2002, I almost played my CD of The Last Broadcast to death - great driving music, especially through deserts. This, though, is from their first album, Lost Souls, because when I saw them play it live a couple of years ago it was an amazing experience. There's just something about the way the chorus rises up to smash into you, and I just love the line 'I tried to sleep alone, but I couldn't do it.'

Good choice Doc. I've been contemplating a Pulp track, but will probably be going for something from "His 'n Hers".

Anyway today's choice from me is Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky. Or more specifically the last two pieces, The Hut On Fowl's Legs and The Great Gate At Kiev, known sometimes together as *Chicken Kiev*. Smile

"Pictures" is a wonderful piece, well known throughout the world. Indeed I'm so keen on it that I used the last minute for the dramatic conclusion to Act One of my version of Snow White a few years ago. That was using Mussorgsky original 19th century piano score. However it is Ravel's masterful 1920's orchestration which is the benchmark (it's much better than ELP - trust me on this!).

The version I have linked features my favourite conductor, Esa-Pekka Salonen, with the Philharmonia Orchestra at the Proms a couple of years ago. For me Esa-Pekka is everything a conductor should be, full of passion, deep of thought and with a slightly eccentric touch. He has recently become Principal Conductor of the Philharmonia, and I'm sure interesting times lay ahead for them.

So for me these 8 1/2 minutes represent everything that is good about Classical Music, a briliant finale to an excellent suite. Very Happy
