Radio GaGa? you’re kidding

say something
Speak to me so I know which end is front …

Radio GaGa? Of course I’m kidding. Scroll on down, there’s six great tracks with links below.

I’m on a Scottish community radio show at Radio West Fife next week at 10 am UK time (there’s an Internet play button on the right). Do listen. They say they’ll YouTube it if they can.

I’m in for a grilling about my writing, life and other stuff by the West Fife Torquemada of the air waves, Keith Lyall. He asked for six tunes I’d like to share, and here’s my selection with YouTube links and brief explanations.

On my last foray with the BBC I called my editor ‘MIss Whiplash’ on air. She forgave me. And, just to celebrate, there’s a fantastic bonus visual/musical experience at the end of this.

1. Happy Feet – Pasadena Roof Orchestra

It makes me smile and tap my feet every time I hear it.

2. Losing My Religion – R.E.M.

Gives me a restless sense of desperation.

3. Dearg Doom – Horslips

Imagine a wild Celtic warrior charging to the fight

4. Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E Minor, 1st mov – Julia Fischer

The first classical performance I ever attended as a boy … moves me still

5. Nothing Compares to You – Sinead O’Connor

Pulls my heart-strings, I want to cry with her

6. Bridge Over Troubled Water – Simon and Garfunkel

Maybe they did fall out … but what compassion

And my bonus is … Ballet Rocks, enjoy

The energy, grace and simplicity is fantastic …

If you can, join us next Tuesday.
