It's 1st October so the obvious thing to do is post a selection of songs that I last played on 1st October in previous years, from 2021 going all the way back to 2014, with apologies for the latter to Blonde Redhead, Willie Nelson & Sinéad O'Connor and The Sisters Of Mercy, you've been sorely neglected.
Forty five minutes of music, randomly collated but lovingly sequenced into a sepia-tinged Saturday soundtrack. Feel and hear the leaves crunch underfoot as you shuffle along, occasionally letting yourself drop into a little jig when you think no-one is looking.
1) Silently: Blonde Redhead (2007)
2) Don't Give Up (Cover of Peter Gabriel & Kate Bush): Willie Nelson ft. Sinéad O'Connor (1993)
3) Everybody's On The Run (Radio Edit): Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds (2012)
4) Manipulating Woman: Ladyhawke (2008)
5) Something Fast (Album Version): The Sisters Of Mercy (1990)
6) Falling Down (SBN (Student Broadcast Network) Session): Turin Brakes (2003)
7) Ü (Angry Side): Kleenex (1979)
8) Lost In A Melody (Radio Edit By Graham Sutton): Delays (2004)
9) Crying Blood (Moody Boyz Front Line Re-Rub): VV Brown (2008)
10) Put You Down: Grant McLennan ft. Syd Straw & Esta Hall (1994)
11) Wiseblood (Johnny Jewel Alternate Version): Zola Jesus (2018)


  1. Great mix, as always from you. Thanks for sharing such wonderful music. I've got very similar taste in music, and just recently started my own blog of my own mixes made for self-care over the last several years. Any chance you'd link to my site?

    Take care,
