Fresh of comparing his own band to The Rolling Stones, Oasis mastermind Noel Gallagher has partnered with download giant iTunes to create a play list of ten songs he finds particularly inspiring. His choices cover everything from Dylan to Marmalade. At least he didn’t pull a Brian Wilson. When Rolling Stone asked the Beach Boys front man for his favorite songs of all-time, he included five Beach Boys’ songs in his Top 10. I’m all for self-confidence, but that seemed a little excessive.
According to NME, Gallagher also included little notes as to why he selected each song. I wonder if you’re allowed to drop the f-bomb in writing on iTunes. Here’s the full track list…
Aphrodite's Child - 'The Four Horsemen'
The Pretty Things - 'Baron Saturday'
The Soundtrack Of Our Lives - 'Infra Riot'
The Doors - 'Back Door Man'
Bob Dylan - 'Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)'
Michael Andrews - 'The Artifact And Living'
Marmalade - 'I See The Rain'
Colosseum - 'The Kettle'
Pink Floyd - 'One Of These Days'
Elvis Presley - 'Moody Blue'
Editor’s Note: While not bad selections, none of these would even come anywhere near my own Top 10 list.
