I enjoy a wide variety of different music.

Below are some of my favourite musicians & songs. The on-site download links, where provided, are sample quality (40Kbps - radio quality); they are here for you to decide whether you also like them, so that you can then get your own (hopefully legal) copies.

Most of the off-site links are to YouTube. Because they keep renaming and reorganising their clips, you may find that some of the links below don't work (I do try to keep them up to date); if this happens, try their search function to find the clip.


The band's official web-site has music samplers.

My personal favourite tracks include "Lightning Crashes", "Heropsychodreamer", "I Alone", "Turn My Head", "All Over You", "Selling The Drama".


(The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, unsurprisingly not the same since Alex Harvey died in 1982). My favourites include "Faith Healer", "Framed" & "Anthem".

Fat Boy Slim

Good music to drive by.

My favoutites track is "Rockafeller Skank".


Unfortunately no longer together.

Some of their stuff is rather odd, but I do like Glycerine and Swallowed very much.

Counting Crows

I love their original big hit, "Mr. Jones", "Rain King" & the song from the movie Shrek 2, "Accidentally in Love".

Dion Dimucci

The classics from the days of Dion & the Belmonts ("Run Around Sue", "The Wanderer" & "A Teenager in Love") are still great.

More recently he had a great solo song, "King of the New York Streets" (live version).

Pink Floyd

How could they not be in my list? My favourites include "The Great Gig in the Sky" (always brings tears to my eyes), "Wish You Were Here", "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" & "Money".

Robbie Williams

"The Ego has landed!"

Apart from his dreadful experiment with Swing, pretty much everything he has done has been great, including "Millennium", "Let Me Entertain You (live)" & the fantastic duet with Kylie Minogue "Kids".

The Cars

The surprise sensation of the Live Aid concert. I especially like "Drive (live)" & "Just what I needed (live at Live Aid)".

The Animals

One of the ground breaking new bands of the 60s. Everyone knows "The House Of The Rising Sun" (and here is a version by Woody Guthrie with original, or nearly original, lyrics); I also vey much like "Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood".

The Who

I was lucky enough to see them live whilst Keith Moon was still alive. There are so many memorable songs to choose from, but my favourites include "My Generation (live at Woodstock)", "Won't Get Fooled Again (live)" & "Teenage Wasteland (live)".

David Bowie

Still going strong, but I really don't like most of his recent stuff. I do, however, recommend "Jean Genie", "The Man Who Sold The World", "Suffragette City (live)", "John, I'm Only Dancing", "Queen Bitch" & "Time".

Ted Nugent

Not everybody's cup of tea, but the man certainly can play the guitar. The song that I really like is "Stranglehold (live)".


A legend among legends. Must have tracks include "Smooth" "Put Your Lights On": "Carlos Santana & Buddy Guy - Montreux Jazz Festival": "Black magic woman".

Pot Boiler

A local Munich band. They are absolutely fantatsic live.

They produced a mini CD, "Heaven & Hell" (only 3 tracks), but the tracks are nowhere near as good as their live performances. An example track is "Another Day".

If you get a chance to see them live, do so!

Peter Gabriel

I enjoy "Sledgehammer" & "Steam (live at the Brit-Awards)".

Eric Clapton

"Old slow hand".

Who can live without sometimes listening to "Layla (live)", "Cocaine (live)", "Can't Find My Way Home (live with Steve Winwood)" & "While My Guitar Gently Weeps (live with Paul McCartney)" (the Beatles song, to which apparently he made a major contribution to writing and playing on the original recording).

The Red Hot Chili Peppers

I guess one day they may get over taking their clothes off on stage & on camera. Regular listening for me includes "Californication (live)", "Scar Tissue (live)", "Snow (Hey Oh) (live)", "Give It Away (Live)" & of course "Higher Ground (live)".

The Prodigy

Excellent music to drive to (not sure the police see it the same way). Essential listening includes "Breathe", "Smack My Bitch Up" & "Firestarter".

The Hollies

Maybe not one of the greatest bands of their era, but here are some memorable songs - "The Air That I Breathe", "Carrie Anne" and of course the timeless "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother".


Not only a great studio band, but really excellent live. My favourites are Losing My Religion (live), Orange Crush (live), Supernatural Superserious and Accelerate.

The Fat Lady Sings

Little known outside of Ireland. My absolute favourite track is "Boil".
