I've got the music in me

After my rather gloomy post on Sunday, here is something happy.

Do you listen to Planet Rock? One of the best things about my little Ford Fiasco is that it has a DAB radio, so now I can listen to this mighty station when I'm out and about. Every evening at 6pm, they have a Rock Block, where a listener chooses the music - and yesterday that listener was me. The deal is you fill in a form online with your 20 top tunes and they pick a selection to play. Of course, if I were to compile another list I'd choose a completely different mix.

This is what they played from my choices:
  • Bad Reputation - Thin Lizzy
  • Because the Night - Patti Smith
  • Long Live Rock 'n' Roll - Rainbow
  • Closer to the Heart - Rush
  • Bad Company - Bad Company
  • Only Women Bleed - Alice Cooper
  • Burlesque - Family
  • Faith Healer - Sensational Alex Harvey Band
  • Stay with Me - The Faces
  • Collide - Black Country Communion
  • I Only Lie When I Love You - Royal Blood
This is what they left out:
  • Dancing the Night Away - The Motors
  • We Are the Road Crew - Motorhead
  • Angel Witch - Angel Witch
  • No Laughing in Heaven - Gillan
  • Come With Me Now - Kongos
  • Dance of Death - Iron Maiden
  • Bad Things - Jace Everett
  • War Pigs - Black Sabbath
  • Aint Talking Bout Love - Van Halen
What do you reckon?


  1. Thanks on your marvelous posting! I truly enjoyed reading
    it, you can be a great author.I will always bookmark your blog and
    definitely will come back very soon. I want to encourage continue your great work, have
    a nice afternoon!

  2. You had such a good list of 20 that it doesn't matter which 10 they chose. It's neat that Planet Rock plays a listener's Rock Block every evening.

    1. It was such fun compiling my list - brought back SO many memories.

  3. I've now got the 'I've got the music in me' song stuck in my head! Wouldn't be so bad, but that's the only bit I can remember and it's going to get boring very soon.

  4. Brilliant list, I'll have a go at finding all f these on youtube. Can't get 'Because the Night' out of my head now!

  5. would you believe I don't know any of those! 😵
