74 Spotisfaction Friday (18 Jun) – Simon Mogg

Quick straw poll – would you prefer playlist updates such as this one in the morning or afternoon? Let us know via Twitter (@spotisfaction).

Afternoon, folks! Today’s playlist comes courtesy of Simon Mogg, whose previous playlist was one of my favourite concepts: “The Evolution of Moggy (in music)”. Fortunately, for today’s submission he’s guaranteed us no nu-metal or PJ & Duncan…

Remember that we’re running a competition to win a ticket for Broken Social Scene’s show in Birmingham on Sat 26th June – if you’ve not entered yet, tweet us your favourite feel-good song with the #compisfaction hashtag. See here for full info!

Love, hugs and mealy bugs.

So this is a slightly different style of playlist than my last. This time its a selection of music that I like to listen to when I can’t move at all. Would be nice for summer in the garden.

Here are a few stand out tracks.

Johnny Cash – Hurt
This track is just plain awesome. You dont often hear tracks that are a vast improvement on their original. But this one is.

Amon Tobin – Four Ton Mantis
Discovered this in a car advert. But dont hold that against it. It has a nice quality to it.

Flipron – Flush It
This band are dark. When I was playing them at one point “the wife” asked me to turn it off because it was depressing her. Gotta love music that creates emotion.

Beastie Boys – Shadrach
I like the Beastie Boys. Any group that goes from Punk to Hiphop in their career appeal to me. This is one of their best tracks if you ask me.

RJD2 – Ghostwriter
I love this track. No other comment its just awesome.

Brigham Young University Vocal Point – Super Mario
hahahahahahahahahaha. Brilliant. Goes with the trade too.

65daysofstatic – Drove Through Ghosts To Get Here
Shame its the live track but i love the way this track builds. It ends in a creshendo of noise. Love it.

The Proclaimers – King Of The Road
I like the Proclaimers. I’m not ashamed.

So there it is. I love all of these tracks. I’d of commented on all of them but that just ends up with a lot of writing.
