FIFTY3 FRIDAYS: LATEST SPOTIFY PLAYLIST
A mini Fifty3 Fridays today as I work on my Glastonbury Festival report which should now be posted in the coming week; a ducks not quite in a row scenario as things stand today. This gives me a mild excuse to highlight a regular feature of this site in the shape of a monthly Fifty3 Fridays Spotify Playlist. The latest one includes all the songs in order from June’s Fifty3 Fridays as long as they are listed on Spotify, of course.
June’s Playlist kicks off with Sweet Billy Pilgrim’s tasty appetiser from the band’s forthcoming new long player, “We Are the Bright Carvers” and closes with the magnificent “My Sad Captains” from Elbow to which I was delighted to sing along live on the Pyramid Stage last Saturday. The only omission this month is Alexei Sayle’s classic “Ullo John! Gotta New Motor?” which is sadly absent from Spotify in its original form and I would not wish to inflict the karaoke remix of the tune, which is available, on anyone.
JUNE SPOTIFY PLAYLIST
Here it is. Please feel free to share it! You can also join the legions of followers [Fact check required – Ed] on Spotify at TonyHardy53. You can access past monthly playlists here too. There are lots of them!
