It included the following:
Blondie – Parallel Lines
This is an all-time stone-cold classic, from the iconic black and white cover to the musical gems like Heart of Glass and Picture this. And 11.59: “Leaning in your corner like a candidate for wax. Sidewalk social scientist don’t get no satisfaction from your cigarette.” Perfection.
The Cars – Candy-O
I have special love for the segue from Shoo-be-doo to Candy O.
The Little River Band – It’s a long way there – Greatest Hits
This album probably got the least lovin’ – sorry Aussie dudes.
Wings – Greatest
Pretty tasty stuff.
Cheap Trick – Dream Police
I think I just listened to the title track. The rest of it is a mystery to me.
Racey – Smash and Grab
The song “Kitty” is exactly the same as 80s Toni Basil classic “Mickey”.
Communique – Dire Straits
“Lady writer on the tv talking about the Virgin Mary”.
The soundtrack of Grease
Hammered this one. Of course I wanted to be Rizzo not Sandy.
Breakfast in America – Supertramp
“When I was young I thought that life was so wonderful”.
I also won a copy of Roxy Music’s Avalon off Radio Hokonui.
Like most music-lovin’ people in Christchurch, my music collection is a bit scattered and scrambled. When our place was demolished, we spotted this in the garage. Bye bye Belle and Sebastian.
