Theme: (Random) Island Rock

At first I started playing random pop songs, mostly music that appealed to me.

  • Turn On Some Music – Marvin Gaye
  • Chained To The Rhythm – Katy Perry
  • Talkin’ About A Revolution – Tracy Chapman
  • One Fine Day – The Chiffons
  • Brown Eyed Girl – Van Morrison
  • Miss Sarajevo – U2 and Luciano Pavarotti

I received a text from a friend to say that last song wasn’t really rock’n’roll. But I didn’t see the text until I played the following songs…

  • Happy – Pharrell Williams

The same friend rang me to ask the name of the last song. I quickly told them, then after it finished I told all my listeners the name, plus explaining it was from the movie ‘Despicable Me 2‘, and to look for any Youtube cover. Here is a Russian version.

  • Only To Be With You – Roachford

ADVERT: KI Fresh Foods

  • Whisky – Maroon 5
  • Ya Ya – Lee Dorsey
  • My Band – D12 – Stopped! Too Many Swear Words
  • The Car Song – The Cat Empire
  • Catch My Disease – Ben Lee
  • Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo – Bloodhound GangPlayed It Right Through, But I Won’t Put On Air Again!
  • Just Like Fire Would – The Saints
  • Cold As Ice – Foreigner
  • Tarantella 2000 – Linguini BrothersStopped! Nope, Not My Style Of Music At All.
  • Dizzy – Tommy Roe
  • Paranoid Android – Radiohead

This is when my friend’s text about the ‘rock and roll music that I wasn’t playing‘ appeared on my phone. I considered their opinion, and changed my music for the evening. This is where my listeners would have been impressed:

  • Welcome To The Jungle – Guns And Roses
  • Bat Outta Hell – Meatloaf
  • Foreign Land – Eskimo Joe
  • Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again? – The Angels
  • Walk This Way – Aerosmith
  • Good Riddance – Green Day
  • Bette Davis Eyes – Kym Carnes
  • Are You Old Enough? – Dragon
  • We Will Rock You – Queen

Then I decided to play the songs displayed on the image-advert I posted on Facebook for my show tonight: Rock and Roll Neighbourhood

  • Highway To Hell- ACDC
  • Itchycoo Park – Small Faces
  • House Of The Rising Sun – The Animals
  • Where The Streets Have No Name – U2
  • Blueberry Hill – Fats Domino
  • 24k Magic – Bruno Mars
  • China Grove – The Doobie Brothers
  • Broken Arrows – Avicii

Suddenly Chook’s Caravan at Cygnet River rang through for a request for a few songs…

  • Good Times – Blink 182
  • Adam’s Song – Blink 182

I resumed playing songs listed on that image:

  • Come As You Are – Nirvana
  • The Dock Of The Back – Otis Reading
  • Road To Nowhere – Talking Heads
  • Thunder – Imagine Dragon

This is where I searched for ‘california‘, and a whole heap of great songs appeared – so I played them all.

  • Hotel California – The Eagles
  • California Girls – Gretchen Wilson
  • California Girls – The Beach Boys \ —- SAME
  • California Girls – David Lee Roth / —- SONG

As the night slowly came to an end, I had to choose a few songs to fit the last 10 minutes that included my standard last song…

  • Hungry Town – BigPig
  • Havana – Camila Cabello
  • Follow The Sun – Xavier Rudd

That was a great evening! Look out for my show next weekend with DJ Grant sitting with me!
