Emiliana Torrini – Gollum’s Song

Listened to a documentary on Tolkien today, and this appeared in my brain. It doesn’t need to be about The Lord of the Rings.


We are lost, we can never go home.



björk – Jóga

Emotional landscapes
They puzzle me
Then the riddle gets solved
And you push me up to this
State of emergency



Siouxsie and the Banshees – Swimming Horses

I always loved the piano on this song.



David Bowie – Suffragette City

She’s a total blam-blam!


David Bowie – Kooks

Psyching up for a Bowie/Roxy night.



Ivor Cutler – Rubber Toy

Ivor has leapt into my head. One of my favourites.

When the forest grew too big
it burst out of my toy.
Hee hee hee,
lucky me!
I gave it lots of lights,
but girls climbed up at night,
now my forest is full of girls.

Hee hee hee,
a girl on every tree!
What a lovely sight
for a little boy like me!
