Mine are the first 12 tracks from " Abba, The Definitive Collection"
Not a very ecclectic mix I'm affraid but the other 8000+ tracks are.

Well I guess I wasn't reckoning on people indexing their songs alphabetically, still I like Abba, I suppose yours is an IPod or like fly258, mine only a humble mp3 player, but I like my songs all mixed up, then I don't know what's coming next, sometimes if its a loud rocking track after a slow ambient one, i nearly jump out of my skin. haha, thanks for your answer anyhoo.

Hey Mike, now your list is interesting too, love Richard Ashcroft, also just bought Dirties new cd at weekend, great stuff, Jack Johnson, dare I say it but I find him a bit blande, Strokes yes,Arctics, great wee band, Graham Coxon loving his solo stuff since Blur, don't know much about Badly Drawn Boy other than his dalliance with Avril Lavigne, like Lilly Allen, must try to hear more, Arrested Dev. not my cup of tea, Raul Midon, sorry don't know, missed Jules, fell asleep waiting for it, thanks for your selection
Cheers ermadea, went to see Ahscroft last week in for your selection, gotta be said, for me the marc almond track stands out as the stinker there I hate that record lol but each to their own I say!! and I'd have had Iggy Pop's Passenger over Candy any day too but otherwise good stuff!

I've just posted a question in music with a link to Raul Midon - check it oot!!!!!

Thanks loopyc, I'm loving your choice, I am enjoying morning runner/starsailor/placebo, all with the same sort of heart wrenching sounds, and rocky too, Love Brians slow numbers too, esp. passive aggressive, Mathew Greener has a great voice too, a bit like James Walsh, Jeff Buckley, a sublime voice, loving wee Luke Pritchard, got a good sound, and good old Jagger, I'll have some of that, Classic Nirvana, sadly missed Kurt, good choices, will check out Panic at the disco and Rocco de luca, and who hasn't got Aretha, got the rest in my collection
Question Author
Thanks Dizzieblonde, well have to say your tunes are a bit more diverse, to my taste, only recently heard some of Regina, excellent voice, love her, Queen, well haven't we all got some of Freddy, what a catalogue of back tunes, like Guy Garvie, Got 3 cds, haven't listened in a while, T. Rex, well thats a melting pot of sounds, Marc Bolan was quite a wee icon, Stevie Nicks, don't know a lot about her solowork, but I have a few Fleetwood Mac cds, Kate Bush, well that's an aquired taste IMHO, The ones I've missed I will check them out
Question Author
Thanks :Ace: Well your selection is a bit of everything really, Zutons not that keen, sound too much like the Coral, aren't they Liverpool lads too, Corinne,not so into jazz/soul stuff, No doubt, don't have any of that,and Gwens solo stuff is a bit too commercial, can't fault Marley got a lot of his, Paul heaton has got a great voice and what a storyteller, guess if your shuffle brought up 3 tracks by Mr Molko you like me have all Placebos work, Chilis stuff I try to like, but I much prefer watching Keidis than listening to him, White Rose Movement, will check that out, I guess your tastes and mine sort of meet in the middle, well whatever gets you through the day, respect, oh and also Junior senior, I'll be looking out for them.
ermadea rocco de luca is great he is managed bu kiefer sutherland, sky did a documentary on him called i trust you to kill me (album title) if its on again its a great watch x
