A Choice Of Listening
Not many updates lately, I know. Strange, you might think, when
I've been taking my customary June fortnight away from the
ever-deepening pool of confusion which is the office. But, I was
determined to spend as much of it as possible outdoors, and I've been
lucky enough to have pretty good weather this year. Besides, the hedge
needed cutting. I have a hedge which is about 30 metres long, and which
is a real parade of variety. I have the standard privet, of course, but
interspersed with this I also have lilac, hawthorn, elder, Buddleia
globosa, hypericum (I can't figure out how that got
there), and one or two things I can't readily identify.
So, not much sitting around indoors, then. Except for watching the
World Cup, of course (and I went out for a walk last Friday afternoon,
thereby missing Argentina v. Serbia and what, by all account, was the
team performance of the event so far).
But, the hedge having been tamed and the weather having turned a
bit, I have finally been able to put together my six-monthly list of My
Hundred Best Tunes.
For new readers, an explanation: every six months, I go through my
expanding collection of music and pick out a hundred tracks. These may
be permanent favourites (about a dozen or so), or they may be whatever
takes my fancy at the time.
Having made my list, I randomise them so as to produce a sort of
playlist, which I then listen to at odd moments during the following
week or so.
You might as well see how varied/interesting.downright bizarre
(delete as appropriate) my musical tastes are. So, follow this link for the playlist.
As usual, there are some sound clips available, including eight new
