1. Song with Handclaps
I'm very fond of handclaps. Infact I made a mix of handclap songs a few years ago. This wasn't on it as it hadn't been made yet. Terrific Spector-ish song..
2. Song with "sun" in title or reminds you of summer
More female vocals means a very poppy start to this mix. Although most of my mixes go this way..
B-Side of Virginia Plain, their debut single.
4. Cover you like better than original
Actually, now I think about it, maybe this was the original. Anyway he didn't write it so...
5. Old song that you heard for 1st time this year
Courtesy of father to be and all round good egg Mr Ion Moe. Thank you sir..
6. Song reminds you of your first relationship
It reminds me of a certain relationship. Not my first, or indeed best..
7. 7th song from an album
Power-pop at it's very best.
8. Best song from your favourite bands worst album
Let it Be is generally considered their worst album. It's still better than a heck of a lot of bands best album..
9. Beatle-esque song
Apples In Stereo.
10. Foreign language song
Rita Lee from Os Mutantes. This song is terrific..
11. Song with your name in title
My name is Sam.
12. Song title is a question?
This is also a foreign language song.
13. A b-side
14. Live version better than studio version
This is from Dylan's 'MTV Unplugged' album, and is a great, great version..
15. Song from year you graduated high school
I left school in 1992. This was from my favourite album of that time.
16. Favorite song from genre/style you usually don't like
I guess I've not got much time for 'Grunge'. Although Copper Blue was kind if Grunge-Pop, and I liked it a lot. Also from 1992.
17. A sexy song
Along with Love To Love you baby, the 2 sexiest songs ever. From the sexy vocals of Ms Summer. The production on this song is fantastic. It's a song that everyone's 'heard', but if you actually 'listen' to it, it's pretty special..
18. Life is a TV show, this is your theme song or Favourite TV theme
I thought about this for a while. I settled on Golden Years for no apparent reason..
19. Song from last album bought/downloaded
Strange pop from Pill Wonder.
20. Song from your first trade
Back in the day I traded a lot. I arranged a trade with Rob C and Jenergy on the same day. I think this arrived a day earlier though. The mix was 'Have You Ever Heard Your Mommy Scream' by Jenergy and this Benny Spellman track was on it..
21. Song under 1 minute
22. Song from 1st or most recent artist you paid to see
First gig was Morrissey at Manchester Apollo in November 1992. This particular track wasn't around at the time but was one I fancied including..
23. Song that makes you cry
every single time..
