Made in Shoreditch

I also contribute a weekly column to Made in Shoreditch magazine called 'Old East End/New East End', where I look at the relationship between the East End of old and new, looking at the changes and the stalwarts in landscape, residents and culture, focussing on one street or district each week. You can find it here.

Five of the Best - Weather

Sunday, 27 June 2010

It's very hot today, which has got me thinking... about songs to do with the weather.

The Beatles - Rain: Fantastic fabs track. Clever lyrics and cool Lennon vocal.

Bob Dylan - Blowin' in the Wind: Do I really need to say anything about this song? Whatever I say will have been said about it, so analysed has this song been. Let's just say it's one of the greatest pop songs ever written.

The Undertones - Here Comes the Summer: 1 minute and 45 seconds of the most exciting, joyous and electric punk rock ever recorded. It could bbe the middle of January and this would still excite me.

The Libertines - Don't Look Back into the Sun: I bloody love this song. Reminds me of being 16 and not giving a shit. When I hear it it takes me back there.

The Beatles - Here Comes the Sun: George Harrison's finest hour on The Beatles' finest album, Abbey Road.

Right I'm off to top up my tan.
