  1. Born to be a Star
  2. Bouncing Bikinis
  3. Don't Prick Your Finger on the Holly
  4. The Slate Dance


  1. 18. Fay

    As good as anything anyone ever did.

    1. Thank you very much. Interestingly, I think Green Day's 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' has the same chord sequence as Fay, but they wrote their song much later.

  2. I know nothing by Green Day.

    I have both Little Stones and Ducks and Drakes on my ipod and have listened to them recently while cycling around central London.

  3. Incidentally, did you spot that John Peel died ten years ago this weekend? Ten years is a long time. Think of how long ten years wa before John Peel really mattered to you! And that stuff you say about the internet - yes, it is true, but the importance of Peelie was that he was our only touchstone, the point at which we shared what was happening. It wasn't just about the music itself.

    Perhaps your mistake is to look back and think it was only about music.

  4. "Fay" is one of my all time favourite songs.
