Clive's all time fab faves:

Top 10 Tunes

  1. Sunny Afternoon - The Kinks

    An all time favourite, which featured on one of my earliest Brit vinyl purchases “Stars of 68.” Inspiration for many a fun jamming session. Forty years later, my teenage kids are now Kinks devotees.
  2. Stand by Me - Oasis

    Forget the “Bad boy” talk, this is enduring anthem material. The crowd, ourselves included, did go wild when Oasis played this at the Logan Campbell centre a decade ago.
  3. The Last Time - Rolling Stones

    Huge hit, Jagger's young voice and the guitar work are toe-tapping, singalong standouts. Heard it recently as an intro to a RWC 011 feature on Radio Sport -- sounded sweet as.
  4. Venus - The Feelers

    Kiwi band take their anthem, lead by James Reid's distinctive vocals from ballad at the start to an all out rock fest by the close. First heard them play live at the late great Tutukaka Tavern before it was destroyed by fire. Memories.
  5. Wild Horses - Rolling Stones

    Sits beside Angie as a classic Stones ballad. Remember getting up close and personal on the dance floor on one occasion and strumming it on another -- not everyone knows the verses but everyone knows the chorus.
  6. Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting - Elton John

    Couldn't get through a 70's/80's London party without this one popping up.
  7. Father and Son - Cat Stevens

    New Year's Eve, Staffa Bay, Northland, two or three guitars, bonfire, beach, Two Paddocks in cup, in our cups.
  8. Someone to Watch Over Me - Gershwin/multiple artists

    Mum's all time favourite ballad, played or sung to me all life through -- enjoy the Ella Fitzgerald version but prefer Mum's.
  9. Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum

    The power of the lyrics, music and mood all add up to legendary status and an automatic top 10 choice
  10. Waterloo Sunset - The Kink

    Thanks to Terry, Julie and the great Ray Davies for giving us nostalgia and the many happy memories of old London town.

Whew, the go go dancers need a break. Think I might need a chilled glass of Riesling to cool my jets. Thanks Clive. Groovy Baby.
