- 1. "Smalltown Boy" by Bronski Beat: Beautiful lyrics, beautiful story. Tragic and sublime.
- 2. "Sea of Sine Waves" by Kelley Polar: I only just discovered Kelley Polar. I like the bass line drop after the intro.
- 3. "Dreaming of Me (2006 Remaster)" by Depeche Mode: This has a charming vulnerability, a bit like the sentiment of 'I Want to Hold Your Hand' by the Beatles.
- 4. "Follow You Follow Me" by Genesis: Massive tune. A great love song. Many would say it's cheesy, but I don't think it is!
- 5. "So Far Away" by Dire Straits: Our old sound engineer used to play this before soundcheck, and it feels really apt when you're away from home.
- 6. "Africa" by Toto: Probably the best song there is with the word Kilimanjaro in it.
- 7. "Farewell to the Fairground" by White Lies: We covered this in the Radio 1 live lounge. White Lies are a brilliant band.
- 8. "Brown Eyes" by Fleetwood Mac: A beautiful song. I love the melodic progression of the vocals.
- 9. "Caribbean Queen (No More Love On the Run)" by Billy Ocean: A poor man's 'Billie Jean,' but I love it.
- 10. "Young Girls" by Sparks: The lyrics are a bit wrong. Can't help but love it, though!
- 11. "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" by Rod Stewart: No. Great song, though.
- 12. "I Get Lifted" by George McCrae: This is my second-favorite George McCrae track, after 'Rock You Baby.'

I love this whole playlist! I knew I could have high expectations for La Roux, & she showed me that she really is a truly amazing artist!
