1968 – Time of the Season

December 29th, 2018 · No Comments · Music

Now this is a cheat. There is no way I really got into the Zombies until a lot later than the 60’s or even 70’s, but this really is a masterpiece. Looking at the hits of that year, there is nothing really that I would have been into at the tme, with the exception of […]

1967 – I’m A Believer

December 28th, 2018 · No Comments · Music

The biggest hit single of 1967 was A Whiter Shade of Pale by Procol Harum. I love that song. I remember a particularly good night doing my rendiditon of it at a karaoke party in the 80’s. Apart from that, I like Procol Harum generally. I think it is criminal that so many people only […]

1966 – Good Vibrations

December 19th, 2018 · No Comments · Music

There were some good songs out in 1966, that I am very fond of, but none of them made an impression on the 4-year-old Skuds until much later.  How to pick a song to represent the year when you are choosing between Substitute by the Who, many brilliant Beatles songs, I Feel Free by Cream, […]

1965 – Concrete and Clay

December 19th, 2018 · No Comments · Music

As I have already said, I am not not a massive fan of 60’s music. I can appreciate some of it, but even then it is music I heard a lot later. All of which makes the 1965 entry quite special because I think I did hear this in the 60’s, although not in ’65 […]

1964 – The Ballad of Hollis Brown

December 9th, 2018 · No Comments · Music

OK, so this might not be an obvious one. It isn’t one of Bob Dylan’s best-known songs and wasn’t even a single, but although I obviously wasn’t listening to this as a two-year-old I did listen to it a lot at quite a young age. When I was growing up there were very few records […]

1963 – She Loves You

December 9th, 2018 · No Comments · Music

At I was still too young to be engaged with music other than maybe nursery rhymes, and without having the good fortune of one of my all-time favourites being released, as in 1962, it isn’t easy to pick a song for 1963. Looking at the singles for this year there are precious few that I […]

1962 – Green Onions

December 7th, 2018 · Comments Off on 1962 – Green Onions · Music

A few months ago I created a Spotify playlist with one track for every year of my life. I already have plenty of playlists that mostly have similar types of music in them – so a punk playlist, a rap playlist, a krautrock playlist, and so on, but I am trying to set some up […]

A life in a playlist

August 28th, 2018 · Comments Off on A life in a playlist · Music

The other day I decided to knock up a playlist of my life. The idea was to have one song for every year that I have been alive. I arbitrarily decided to not have more than one track for an artist and I was a bit flexible about the dates. Sometimes there is a song […]
