TFC Playlist March 14 2009 – Program #50

In TFC on March 14, 2009 at 11:40 am

Cake all round and don’t spare the marzipan. The 50th Full Catastrophe could have been an excuse to wallow in previous near-triumphs.  Instead, it was a chance to play a heap of new tunes (new to the show, that is) and ponder life, the universe and the Western Bulldogs.

On behalf of the official receiver, here is the celebratory playlist:

Was It Worth It? – Pet Shop Boys

Oh lordy, it has been!

Tits On The Radio – Scissor Sisters

Pack Up Your Sins – Dorothy Loudon

Dorothy is not a well known name, which is a huge shame.  She had a great voice and enormous humour.  She could also sell a song

Only A Rose – Geraint Watkins

This is a Welsh bloke, but you would never know it !!

Killer Queen – Queen

Amacord – Nino Rota

For Pete’s Sake – Monkees

Lisa Lan – Endaf Emlyn

What More Do I Need – Dawn Upshaw

Dawn is one of the few opera stars who can straddle many musical worlds. The track is from Stephen Sondheim’s “Saturday Night”, see her here in opera mode.

I’m Sick Of You Tasting Of Somebody Else – Marc Almond

Love Carefully – Frank Bennett

The Penis Song – Eric Idle

St Exuberant – Paris Combo

Ain’t No Sunshine – Michael Jackson

Cuddle Me – Dennis Lotis

Unforgetable Season – Cut Copy

Minor Glue – Twinset

Specialisation – Marilyn Monroe

You’re Just In Love – Ethel Merman & Dick Haymes

For another version of this song, have a look at the Muppets and Cleo Lane. It’s a bit strange

Cast Of Thousands – Craig Carnelia

Carnelia is, in my opinion, a huge talent.  His songs are one act plays.  He deserves much wider recognition.  Here’s another of his songs, being sung by someone who proves that beanies are always sexy!

Ladies Who Lunch – Camp (soundtrack)

To put this track in context have a look at the clip from “Camp”.  It’s a hoot with on of the best lines ever.  Feast your optics

Last Dance – Donna Summer

We’ll 57 seconds of it…fortunately the 7th Cavalry,musically speaking was:

The Only Way Is Up- Yazz
