I know you lot know your music

So how about giving David Miliband a hand in creating his ‘eco’ playlist?

I’ve submitted Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology) by Marvin Gaye, what can you think of?

No peeking.

    I haven’t peeped and I don’t intend to.
    I’m racking my brains and so far have come out with: “Nine types of industrial pollution” by Zappa (that is instrumental so that’s only the title actually), What a wonderful world (Louis Armstrong) and “Cantico delle creature” (song of the creatures) by Saint Francis of Assisi (in Italy we study it at school).

    How can I have overlooked it: It’s Not Easy Being Green by Kermit the Frog

    On my way home my MP3 player threw up Natural Beauty by Neil Young off his Harvest Moon album.

    How about ‘Kind of blue’ by Miles Davis?

    Like the Neil Young suggestion, but wouldn’t ‘Alaska’ from ‘Greendale’ be better?

    I’m afraid Greendale’s one of the few I’ve not got.

    Well worth checking out. His best recording this century, I reckon. (Though perhaps the line “Don’t care what the government says” may not be that suitable for David Miliband…)

    One of the very few energy efficiency songs popped into my head last night. WCKR SPGT’s “Francois Mitterrand, do you have the heater on?” was a John Peel favourite, I seem to remember. They were ahead of their time those guys.

    Sounds like a winner to me on all counts.
