The Perfumed Garden

This is a very belated tribute to the Late Great Legend John Peel, inspired by the book by Mick Wall that I have recently demolished while on holiday. Peel of course was a British public broadcasting institution for almost 40 years. Playing heaps of new and experimental music right up until his sudden death in Peru in 2004. He would make a yearly list voted for by his fans called the festive 50, so I have complied my own list...

Top 15 Songs on my MP3 player with song titles related in some way to traveling:

  • In Transit - Albert Hammond Jr.
  • The Passenger - Iggy Pop
  • Crosstown Traffic - Jimi Hendrix
  • Journey - Mestar
  • Going Missing - Maximo Park
  • The Ride - Shapeshifter
  • Climatize - Prodigy
  • Station Approach - Elbow
  • Some Cities - Doves
  • How To Disappear Completely - Radiohead
  • Superstation - Bressa Creating Cake
  • We Used to Vacation - Cold War Kids
  • America is not the World - Morrissey
  • You Can't Go Home Again - DJ Shadow
  • As Serious As Your life - Four Tet
It's just something to amuse me really, the intro was you don't think it's a tribute to David Letterman or Hi fidelity, but definately read the Peel book if you get a chance!!
