The Album: Part 4

This is it the final part….

16 – The Cure – Boys Don’t Cry

Well we don’t do we? Or we’re not supposed to anyway.

17. Hazel O’Connor – Will You?

From one of my favourite films, Breaking Glass. This is a lovely moment in a traumatic film and I’m a softie for a good saxophone solo and there is a cracker in this song.

18. Roy Orbison – I Drove All Night

This belongs to the 7” single days again. The lyrics are quite funny, I drove all night to make love to you, is that all right? No, I’m tired, now bugger off!

19. The Pretenders – I Go To Sleep

I used to go out with a girl who looked exactly like Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders were one of my favourite bands (still are) at the time! Chrissie was and still is gorgeous.

20. Radiohead – Motion Picture Soundtrack

The song I want played at my funeral! I will see you on the other side, maybe a bit maudlin but it will be my funeral, so tough!
