1. Heard it Through the Grapevine – Credence Clearwater Revival
    10:59 of gravelly, dirty, loose perfection and the best tom tom action ever recorded
  2. Stretch Out and Wait – The Smiths
    Morrissey in his considerable pomp
  3. No Regrets – Tom Rush
    Versione Originale and the best
  4. Heart of Saturday Night – Tom Waits
    Possibly the most evocative pop song ever
  5. Good Fortune – PJ Harvey
    Can’t listen to this without picturing the video – she is so cool!
  6. Last of the Melting Snow – Myleene Klass and Guy Garvey
    Not the original but so delicious
  7. Happy Together Now – The Jam
    A hard driving love song
  8. Babies – Pulp
    Jarvis giving it everything
  9. I Guess I’m Just a Little too Sensitive – Orange Juice
    Funky, Dubby and very Scottish
  10. My Baby Just Cares for Me – Nina Simone
    Written in 1930 recorded by Ms Simone in 1958 and still as fresh as a daisy
