- Who loves the sun – The Velvet Underground
Has anyone got ‘Loaded’? Can’t find it anywhere, you can send it to me at Rak.
- From a whisper to a scream – Elvis Costello
Any other track you care to mention by Elvis Costello, because I like everything he does.
- Who’s sorry now – Connie Francis
What a fantastic voice
- My baby left me – Elvis Presley
The uptempo version. It couldn’t be done better by anyone else.
- Try a little tenderness – Otis Redding
I first heard it on Elvis Costello’s Star Special on Radio 1 and I agree with him, it’s the best thing he ever did.
- Somebody tole you – Anne King
Really Sleazy music. She’s a black soul singer who was discovered in a James Brown talent contest.
- Just a little loving – Dusty Springfield
From ‘The Dusty in Memphis’ album. The whole album is full of fantastic material.
- Baby I love you – Aretha Franklin
- Money – Barrett Strong
A long time favourite of mine
- I’ve got you under my skin – Frank Sinatra
The only song I’d put a frock on for
