And I Will Kiss by Underworld featuring Dame Evelyn Glennie
Not interested in the Olympics, but Boyle and Underworld’s opening was an eccentric, silly and creative treat that said fuck you to our criminal government.
O Lucky Man by Alan Price
From the eponymous film, one of greatest pieces of UK cinema ever!
Swastika Eyes by Primal Scream
‘I see your autosuggestion psychology
A military industrial
Illusion of democracy ‘
My Heart Still Beats For You (live) by Anna Ternheim
Because I’m a sensitive soul (and also love Wallander which is how I was first introduced to Anna’s music).
Power in the Darkness by Tom Robinson Band
Anti-fascist anthem that is sadly topical again.
Overpowered by Róisín Murphy
Full Album Version
Never, ever get sick of Róisín’s genius work. Listen, dance, sing!
Not Giving Up On Love by Armin van Buuren vs Sophie Ellis Bextor
Pop done perfectly.
Anything Could Happen by Ellie Goulding
Electro heaven on the beach.
Harder Than You Think by Public Enemy
Adopted by Paralympians (ps. Fuck Atos), who show good taste as I used it for a Burma protest vid when it came out. Chuck D for ever!
Biko by Peter Gabriel
