Ladies and Gentlemen! A respectful hush if you please. Please! Welcome back to the Dayglo and another Bacchanalian Bacchanal, another night of song and...oh sod it, you know why you're here. However may we take this opportunity to apologize momentarily for the heat in here -- not only has Andrzej the Polish Plumber stuffed the air-con, but our special guest has single-handedly raised the mean temperature on the Dayglo floor by a good 20 degrees. It's the way she wears that dress.
Yes punters and puntees, all the way from Hollywood California, and before that, London England, it's the talented and utterly gorgeous Lena Headey! All you Game of Thrones fans...yes it's your actual Lena, right here in the Dayglo -- but we'll have none of that pogo dancing here thanks. Or are you Man City fans? We're confused... Anyway, you know her best, other than that, from The Brothers Grimm, 300, The Terminator on the telly, and heaps of other stuff...but we know her best when working with the Prop three times -- The Jungle Book, Merlin and the upcoming Mariah Mundi -- The Midas Box. And you'll be seeing a lot more of her in the upcoming Dredd. She's always brilliant, always funny, and we are very fond of her here at TPHQ.
And here she is with her Top 10. Actually, looking at the list, we see she has gotten out of control, and chosen more than the allotted 10...Oh Lord, where is the discipline these days? I'm afraid it's 10 or nothing, young lady!
Bring her up to the stage, let her pass you mongrels, here she is -- a vision of loveliness, our old friend and all round good egg, the simply ravishing ... give it up for ... LENA HEADEY!!
When I was pregnant with my son, now two, I played this and I wept. The depth of the lyrics equaled the love I felt for someone I'd never met. Someone I knew who was about to change my entire being. He did and it's wonderful.
I was stuck in a funny little shack in southern Ireland with a new baby, doing a new job. Things were a wee bit stressful. I would put Wylie in the baby bjorn and dance around to this song. It's impossible not to grin.
Mackenzie sang this on his guitar in a hotel room in Prague. (Yes, that sounds dodgy. It wasn't.) I've loved this song ever since. Saw Joni and Dylan in Toronto. What a night. My sweet friend Larissa sings it whenever we drink a wee bit too much.
I did a TV show way back when. We shot in new Zealand and on our days off we would drive around, park at the beach and swim and lay on the warm sand, we'd leave the car doors open and let James Taylor sing to us.
This just makes me tingle and inhabit a different world. The whole album is just genius. Beautiful beautiful. I saw her at Coachella recently. She is otherworldly. I grinned and jumped and swayed and was unearthly bound for a few hours.
Anthem of my northern teen years. Just fantastic. Used to bunk off school and go to Manchester to look for Ian brown and Sean Ryder. Never found em.
A well spent Misspent youth ( musical education) The only indie club in my area. Underage and too much fun. They played this track at the end of the night. A Sweaty and collective band of northern teens on a journey of discovery.
Beautiful. Touches my very soul. Not JUST cause you're in it Sam.
Just a fantastic angry song. It's been my companion on a journey of the heart filled with disappointment. Good to play loud if you've had a shitty day.
