Our Creative Director Dan picks a random track, our guest adds a track that they think of in response and explains the link, then they go back and forth until we end up with 10 tracks.
TT#7 X PAT MURPHY
Founder & CEO of MCA
Track 1 - Richie Havens "Going Back To My Roots"
DD: Love the intro to this track.
Track 2 - Odyssey "Native New Yorker (40th Anni Mix)"
PM: Going back to my roots was covered by Odyssey, so I picked the 40th anniversary version of my favourite song by Odyssey “Native New Yorker”.
Track 3 - a-ha "Manhattan Skyline"
DD: I'm going for a New York-Manhattan link to a track that I loved as a kid. It's a great unconventional pop song that immediately takes me back every time I hear it. I can still see the little fold-out cassette sleeve now...
Track 4 - John Miles "Music"
PM: Okey dokey. I thought when I saw Manhattan skyline as a track name it was going to be the John Miles version. But anyway as he did a track called Manahattan skyline that's a link to his all time classic ‘Music'. He passed away last in December. One of my favourites.
Track 5 - µ-Ziq “The Fear”
DD: For my next pick I’ve jumped from Music to µ-Ziq (pronounced music), an experimental electronic artist, but this track veers more toward modern classical/Michael Nyman/Wim Mertens territory.
Track 6 - Greta Panettieri "Goodbye Stranger"
PM: Love the link. My favourite track is Goodbye Goodbye, so then chose a fantastic rendition of Supertramp's Goodbye Stranger by Greta Panettieri.
Track 7 - Sargasso Trio "Heels On Fire"
DD: The start of this immediately reminded me of a little-known old favourite called "Heels on fire" by Sargasso Trio.
Track 8 - KC & The Sunshine Band "Boogie Shoes"
PM: From heels to shoes, Boogie shoes appeals to my love of 70's disco. A classic from KC and the Sunshine Band.
Track 9 - Sound Experience "Boogie Woogie"
DD: Sticking with the French theme, Françoise Hardy was born and raised not far from Les Champs-Elysees.
Track 10 - Joey Negro "Must Be The Music - Disco Boogie Xtravaganza Dub"
PM: Must be the Music by Joey Negro, the Disco Boogie Xtravaganza mix. Just Love Joey Negro.
