Monday Morning Music Mix

What am I listening to this morning? An eclectic mix … wonderful thing this iTunes random setting, with a little bit of help from me of course.

Love having music playing while I am updating and creating web presences.

  • Hey You – Dean Wareham (Pink Floyd cover)
  • Friday I’m In Love – Dean and Britta (The Cure cover)
  • I Love You … I’ll Kill You  – Enigma (cool guitar solo)
  • Get Ready – Rare Earth (all 21 minutes of it, including bass solo, drum solo and canned applause)
  • Ten Cent Dynamite – Five Horse Johnson
  • Why Can’t We Be Friends – War (heard this in Cheaper By The Dozen 2 movie on TV the other night)
  • Pigs incl Dogs & Sheep – Solar Project (a 10 minute medley of tracks off Pink Floyd’s Animals album)
  • Money – Elkie Brooks featuring Duncan Mackay on keyboards (another Floyd cover … I must be in a Pink Floyd mood this morning, well they are one of my all-time favourite bands)
  • Driving Till The Break Of Day – John Mayall (from 1973’s Ten Years Are Gone album)
  • Street Life – MC Terror (Cape Town hip hopper samples prog-rocker Rick Wakeman’s Journey To The Centre Of The Earth … The Battle, I think)

Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He served in the military for five years, then spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He was the Content Editor for Rhythm Online, South Africa's first online music store, from 2006 to 2012. He ran Mabu Vinyl, the iconic music store seen in the Oscar-winning "Searching For Sugar Man" film from 2013 to 2019. His voice could be heard on the streaming radio station All Jazz Radio where he hosted the Vagabond Show from 2012 to 2019. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including www.rock.co.za which he founded in 1999.
