ALL TIME TOP 10
(Songwriter, Buggle and producer of Dollar, ABC, and Spandau Ballet).
This I not my All-Time Top Ten, but these are the records I like to listen to at the moment. They might change from week to week.
- KATE BUSH: Sat In Your Lap (EMI). The first time Kate Bush produced herself. Maybe she’ll get the drum sound better next time but I still like the track.
- KATE BUSH: Breathing (EMI). Live the line “chips of plutonium twinkling in every lung.”.
- TOM DOLBY: Airwaves (Venice In Peril). Beautiful song but surly vocals on the first verse blew away any chance it may have had as a hit single.
- ABC: The Look Of Love (Neutron). My favourite ABC song so far.
- DOLL BY DOLL: Stripshow (Magnet). Sadly ignored. From the brilliant album “Gipsy Blood”.
- YES: Heart Of The Sunrise (Atlantic). I’d like to try and programme this into a rhythm box.
- CHRIS REA: Tennis (Magnet). His best song.
- YES: Turn Of The Century (Atlantic). A nice piece of escapism.
- KATE BUSH: Army Dreamers (EMI). I know exactly what she means.
- LED ZEPPELIN: D’Yer Maker (Swan Song). Greatest drum sound ever.
