You can blame Liza for this one.

5 You're going on a long journey, what five albums MUST you take with you? Albums that you need to listen to regularly.

@ The The "Dusk"
@ Bob Marley "Legend"
@ Radiohead "OK Computer"
@ Clash "London Calling"
@ Beloved "Happiness"

4 What four albums/songs do you most associate with a journey or travel experience? You know, the ones you listen to that instantly transport you back to a place and time.

@ The Cult "Love" (especially "She Sells Sanctuary"), back in the summer of '85, when I sort of grew up. Nudge nudge wink wink, saynamore.
@ Depeche Mode "Enjoy The Silence", just as I was about to leave the UK for a life of gallivanting.
@ The The "Dusk", quite possibly the best album of the 90's. Takes me back to backpacker living in Tel Aviv and a breakup with a long term girlfriend.
@ INXS "Original Sin", listened to on a cassette Walkman (fuck!) traveling down to a deserted Eilat on the bus just as Saddam was about to launch the mother of all battles.

3 Your three favourite songs of all time?
Oooh, this is tough...

@ Queen "Somebody To Love", without George Michael of course (I used to sing - er, mumble - junior this one to sleep)
@ The Doors "Alabama Song"
@ Joy Division "Love Will Tear Us Apart"

2 Two feel good songs, the ones that are guaranteed to lift the blues and put a smile on your face.

@ James "Sit Down"
@ d-ream "Things Can Only Get Better"

1 Absolute, overall, undoubtedly the best album of all time, in your opinion.

I'm torn between these two:
@ The Blue Nile "Walk Across The Rooftops"
@ David Bowie "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust & the Spiders from Mars".
