The Who – Behind Blue Eyes  

I love it when Roger Daltrey sings the line 'No one bites back as hard, On their anger'- I think anger is an under-rated emotion for fuelling creativity.

JJ Cale – Let Me Do It To You  

The rhythm of this song is so loping and relaxed. It's sexy and drunk.

Adam Green – Bluebirds  

Adam is funny and intelligent. And the songs he writes don't suffer for it.

The Allman Brothers Band – Jessica  

It's the Top Gear music. For hitting those Jeremy Clarkson/Alan Partridge moments.

Black Sabbath – Electric Funeral  

Like a zombie plodding across a post-nuclear landscape with a chainsaw.

Bob Dylan – Country Pie  

The happiest song Dylan ever did. 

Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band – Look At Me I'm Wonderful  

Big hairy Policemen.

Deep Purple – The Mule  

Listen to Ian Paice's drums and know God.

Harry Nilsson – Driving Along  

Don't step on the flowers.

Milt Jackson – People Make The World Go Round  

So very cool, funky and beautiful. From the Sunflower album with Herbie Hancock among others.
