Default The John Peel Festive 50 Tribute Thread

As there are 50 days till Christmas (I was gonna do this a couple of days ago & forgot .... humour me OK?).I got thinking how to celebrate this year in music.

As the great man is no longer around to give us his festive 50 I thought we should make up our own.

It`s perfectly simple , just upload a song from this year that you love & say a little about it.

Hopefully by Christmas we`ll have a wide range of the best stuff of the year from all different genres , and at the same time do the great mans memory proud.

Easy.

So i`ll start this off....

50. Jarvis Cocker - C*nts Are Still Running the World.

A wonderful song originally posted on Jarvis`s myspace site a few months ago to let people know he`s back from the dead.Included on his new album Jarvis as a hidden bonus track.This track shows that Jarvis has lost none of the gritty reality that made his lyrics in Pulp a joy to listen to.

Disco Ensemble - We Might Fall Apart
http://www.sendspace.com/file/h7syr2

There is a lot of emotion and energy in this song. Every time I hear this song it unlocks a mood which I don't get in a lot. The band plays so well together and creates such a great atmosphere. It can be listened to however you're feeling.

I just love it.

48. Exile Parade - Fire Walk With Me/Get Your Gun Boy.

In true John Peel style I'm going to champion a brand new, little known band...Exile Parade and their double A-Sided debut single;
FIRE WALK WITH ME / GET YOUR GUN BOY http://www.exileparade.co.uk/main.htm < soz no download, but the website. Hear it here.

Described as taking the best of the Verve, Queens Of The Stone Age and Oasis and channeled into one feral whole.
All being fair, Exile Parade are set to burst onto the scene over the coming months.
I think this band has what it takes.
Blistering potential and top live too.

47. Sonic Youth- Pink Steam

One of my most overlooked songs on the new album on first listening, but it has really grown on me. Classic SY guitar and it appears to be an intrumental until late on in the song when Thurston starts singing. Sits nicely with other classic songs in their back catalogue, well worth the listen.

46. The Plot To Blow Up The Eiffel Tower - Boys Keep Swinging

Possibly my favourite band discovery of 2006 covering one of my favourite David Bowie songs on their farewell E.P. Obviously I had to include this one.

45. Giant Drag - Wicked Game

Annie Hardy covers Chris Isaac (think thats who did it) surprisingly well, John Peel would have approved i should think.

44. Jesus - Brand New.

Courtesy of Crowquill...thankyou.

'Jesus' by Brand New. From the album 'The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me'.
Beautiful lyrics, beautiful song. Good enough for any list.

43. Raconteurs - 'Steady As She Goes'.

If John Peel was alive today, this song would definately be in this years 50.
Big fan of Jack White.
Eveybody's heard it, here it is again anyway... http://www.sendspace.com/file/7dvr11

Wouldn't be complete without it.
