19. Nov. 2010, 15:42 von missygp29There's been a big hullabaloo about Robyn covering When Doves Cry by Prince. Which reminded me - although I shouldn't have needed it - what an extraordinarily brilliant record it is. Which prompted me to see what genius on my nano would do with it. The result: wonders. No, really, this playlist is the bomb (and yes, the early 2000s called and want their slang back).
So I had to share:
Starting tune: When Doves Cry
3. Sweet Thing
6. If Your Girl Only Knew
7. Ex Factor
8. The Payback
9. Inner City Blues
10. Deep Inside
11. Work It
12. Use Me
13. Summer Breeze
14. You And I
15. I Can Change
16. Wait A Minute
17. Real Love
18. Are You That Somebody?
19. Nothing Really Matters
20. One Minute Man
21. Mercy Mercy Me
22. Trick Me
23. I Was Made To Love Her
24. Hard to Handle

Comprised of two saxophonists, a drummer, bassist and electronic effects guru, Polar Bear are definitely one of the most progressive jazz groups around at the moment. They played the Colston Hall bar on May 16 to an audience mostly made up of older jazz fans looking for something new, with a few younger people who obviously identified with the more fusional facets of their distinctive sound.
Their music represents a form of organised chaos - the audience has absolutely no idea what's going on most of the time, but the band maintains a rigid tight sound and flawless collective timing. They were mostly playing material from their new album, which is recorded but without a name (as are many of the tracks) or any of the album artwork, as well as a few from Held on the Tips of Fingers such as Beartown and The King of Aberdeen.
The excellent leader Sebastian Rochford on drums, sporting an attention-grabbing flamboyant hairstyle, provided the rhythmic foundations with bassist Tom Herbert. …

This song to me is a perfect balance of all the reasons I fell in love with this band.
This song held me together while shooting in New York.
30 Days In The Hole
Just a bad-a*ss rock record from start to finish.
Kind of timely don't you think?
Why I signed this band.
If anyone questions if David Bowie rocks, this will answer it.
Any Dark Day
Jude Cole is partners with me in the record label (he knows where the bodies are buried and had to).
This is what I consider punk.
Inner City Blues
Marvin Gaye was one of the great political writers of our time and this is a perfect example.
All 'Cause of You
Amazing transition from verse to chorus.
She Still Loves Him
If Ironworks Record was around at the time this album came out, they would have made it.
Call Me A Dog
Do I really have to explain this one?
Born In The 50's
This song always reminds me that the Police started out as a punk band.
