    PHD - I wont let you down
    Black - wonderful life
    level 42 - something about you
    mazzy star - fade into you
    bronski beat - smalltown boy
    Style council - shout to the top
    Al Stewart - Year Of The Cat
    Joe jackson - stepping out
    joy division - love will tear us apart

    and something more jolly -

    Fat Larry's Band - Zoom

    Some of you lot are showing your age ;p

    Coldplay and Oasis would be my 2 faves, although I'd say the one song that I never tire off is Snow Patrol - chasing cars

    I have many but the two things I have listened too most are Hergest Ridge and Ommadawn by Mike Oldfield. Those two pieces are therapy, peace and, in a way, a drug to me.

    Some great music on here and eclectic tastes. Most seem to like many genres of music which is what I expected.
    Although I only mentioned 2 in my original post I never meant people should be limited to 2, so it’s nice to see people list a few.

    I like the sentiment and Tracie Thorn's voice is at its languid best.

    Great call. “Old Friends” is also worth a mention.

    I’ve only started listening to Art of Noise this year. Love their take on the Robinson Crusoe tv series theme.

    I turned Jools Holland on last Friday just as this song came on, and I was pleased to see they uploaded this specific performance to YouTube on Monday. It’s from 2012, I’ve never heard of the guy before, but I think it’s remarkable and I’m very glad I turned over when I did.

    I'm a creature of habit.

    Most days, I listen to a Miles Davis & a Robert Johnson track, just whatever plays randomly when I open the folder. (I've probably done that for more than 15 years!)

    The song that I've listened to most often that isn't RJ or MD? That'll be Jackson Browne's 'These Days'. He wrote it when he was 16, the talentless so-&-so. First recorded by Nico, it's a song that's been covered over 50 times. Gregg Allman & Glen Campbell are among the best versions, IMO.

    Here's a list of versions for anyone who wants to investigate -

    COVERS OF 'THESE DAYS'

    Similar too Jeremy, and I've seen Ommadawn
    performed live, which was amazing. Sally Oldfield was sat next to me too.

    Surf's Up by the Beach Boys, though tribute band the Fendertones more than do it justice.

    Radiohead Weird Fishes/Arpeggi (Scotch Mist)

    https://youtu.be/FcANFVcJeOM

    I would happily have this played at my funeral.

    I don't know what planet Radiohead are from, but I'm glad they are visiting.
    I listen to this at least once a week
