    Having had a look on the list, I see Guy Garvey made an appearance once, so here's an Elbow song I've been dying to try.

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    Robert Forster was on Emma's guest list. He was a member of Australian band The Go-Betweens. The video here is a promotional film of Rockdale in the '30's.It's the next suburb to me in the south of Sydney.
    Good theme Emma!

    Anyone who does an Ali McGregor song should get double points!

    This week I seem to be going for artists with stunning pipes, something I sadly do not possess. My favourite moment from Spicks and Specks was when Megan Washington announced herself to the Australian by completely enchanting everyone in her round of Substitute.

    So here is my favourite song from her, Cement. With added, er, artistic input from Isaac.

    "I'll feel better maybe if we get some weather" is a particularly apt line for this England cricket fan. Don't think Hurricane Dorian could save this test now though

    It got close but it was a pleasure to watch Australia retain The Ashes!

    Saved a bit of dignity but we've been second best in all four tests really.

    We were trounced. England have major problems with the five day game. They're OK in the limited overs format but seem to fall down in the long game.

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    Hi all,
    I’m loving all the songs so far. This is very exciting for me, hosting my first season and all!
    The playlist is up!

    Just a couple of points of clarification for now on:
    The challenge this week is for songs originally performed (or written) by artists who appeared on Spicks and Specks (not songs that were covered by S&S artists).
    The songs do not need to have been performed on the show.

    UPDATE! A new criterion: songs covered by Spicks and Specks artists may be brought if that artist performed the cover on the show. For instance, Mezcalero’s example (below) of Ceberano/Campbell’s cover of Falling Slowly was performed on the show, so it is fair game for this season.

    I’m going to trust everyone to make sure their song/s meet the criteria.

    I hope that’s ok!
