Soundtrack To My Life - Claire

Claire is part of the uber-amazing Cybher team and it's great to feature her on Soundtrack To My Life this week.  I'm glad to say that I've loved getting to know Claire more over the last year and have even pretended to be dead with her in a photo (it's a long story involving late night chats and lots of red wine).  I am loving some of Claire's choices so much because she's introduced a new-to-me artist and prompted me to find an old album.  For now, over to Claire...


Tracy Chapman - Fast Car  

This was the first song that popped into my head. The lyrics are superb. I think I listened to this a lot when I was stoned... because I can't really pinpoint why I love this song so much.

Ocean Colour Scene - Policemen and Pirates 

After some serious reviewing of the track listing of Ocean Colour Scene's album, Moseley Shoals, I think I am going to have to go with this track. These are one of the most underrated bands ever. Love that album and have sung at the top of my lungs to it a lot driving about. I saw them at V a few years a go and they fooking rocked the place.

Faithless - We Come 1  

I remember being at a Glastonbury festival, the sun had just set ... the place was buzzing and this track came on. Literally hairs on the back of my neck came up, everyone was singing the 1. It was a epic. Must have been 2002.

Angie Stone - So Pissed Off  

I love her. Little Legs (my daughter) loves her. We sing to Angie all the time. I adore love both the Mahogany Soul and Black Diamond albums. Brotha is a wicked track, and No More Rain is beautiful. But I am going to go with this one. Love it. I recommend everyone who doesn't know the albums to get them....

Afrika Bambaata - Soul Sonic Force  

I nearly chose Claire & Friends - It's 'Orrible Being In Love (When You're 8 1/2) as my final track, I was 8 at the time this track came out and because her name was Claire, yadda yadda.... but I can't follow Angie Stone with that! So instead I've looked at the most played songs in my iTunes and other than Angie, it's this one. So that's my last choice. It's cool. Enough said.
