Soundtrack Of My Life: Matthew Horne

The primary tune I keep in mind listening to

Dire Straits – ‘Stroll Of Life’

“My dad and mom would play Dire Straits‘ ‘Cash For Nothing’ [greatest hits] album within the automobile once we would go on our seaside journeys to Skegness. Clearly this tune has a really distinctive keyboard riff and I feel that’s why it’s lived lengthy in my reminiscence.”

The primary tune I fell in love with

The Stone Roses – ‘Waterfall’

“It’s the primary tune I fell in love with as a result of I discovered it myself, quite than having someone play it for me, if that is sensible. And I liked it a lot that I purchased it on all codecs. The Stone Roses had been an enormous a part of my musical upbringing and I nonetheless hearken to them now. Nevertheless it’s a bit troublesome in the mean time, isn’t it? I feel it calls into query the legitimacy of your love for any given band when the members’ public profile is probably skewed away from one’s central core beliefs.”

The primary gig I went to

The Levellers – Granby Halls, Leicester, 1993

“I keep in mind it very effectively. I purchased my gig ticket and my coach ticket and obtained on the coach from Nottingham to Leicester. After which I purchased the band t-shirt once I was there. They had been supported by a UK rock-rap group referred to as Credit score To The Nation and I keep in mind their set effectively too. I liked the entire expertise and fell in love with gigs there after which.”

The tune that makes me wish to dance

Donna Summer season – ‘I Really feel Love’

“I initially considered ‘Inspector Norse’ by Todd Terje as a result of it’s the proper nu-disco monitor. Whether or not you recognize it or not, it at all times will get folks going. However then I heard ‘I Really feel Love’ final night time on the TV and thought ‘OK, let’s return to unique disco’. That’s the monitor that will get all people going.”

The tune I do at karaoke

Erasure – ‘A Little Respect’

“It’s probably the most excellent pop songs I’ve ever heard. It’s positively a tune I take pleasure in doing at karaoke, however I can’t vouch for the standard of my efficiency. I used to run a membership night time in Shoreditch once I was a lot youthful, and [Erasure singer] Andy Bell got here and did a DJ set for us. He was very, very candy and performed some fantastic information.”

The tune that jogs my memory of house

Aphex Twin – ‘Xtal’

“It’s the primary monitor on ‘Chosen Ambient Works 85–92‘. It jogs my memory of house as a result of I can distinctly keep in mind listening to that album again and again on cassette on the way in which to highschool, on the way in which again from college, and simply strolling round my village again in Nottinghamshire. That monitor got here into my sphere once I was about 14 or 15 and it felt like getting into a complete new world, a complete new dimension.”

The tune I can now not hearken to

Elbow – ‘Station Strategy’

“It’s not as a result of I’ve heard it an excessive amount of or it’s overplayed. It’s as a result of it jogs my memory of going house to see my mom who I misplaced prematurely three years in the past. It’s a tune about [Elbow singer] Man Garvey going house to Manchester and seeing a lot familiarity round him. I really like this tune, however when he sings “I haven’t seen my mum for weeks”, I simply lose it. So I simply can’t do it any extra.”

The tune I want I had written

Keaton Henson – ‘You Don’t Know How Fortunate You Are’

“Keaton Henson isn’t the form of artist I might usually like. I’ve nothing in opposition to stripped again people music, but it surely’s not up there with the genres of music I often hearken to. However this tune, goodness me, it’s simply so spare and exquisite. Whether or not I take pleasure in a band or not, particularly once I see them dwell, tends to come back down as to whether I feel they imply it. Clearly that’s subjective and unquantifiable in some methods however I feel there’s one thing in it. I’ve no specific relationship to what this tune is about however I can really feel that he actually, actually means it.”

The tune I can’t get out of my head

Daft Punk – ‘Alive’

“It’s not an annoyance, I am keen on this tune. It’s a really stripped again piece of digital home music and there’s one thing in regards to the vitality and drive of it that jogs my memory of my very own mind. I feel it’s that repetitive motion ahead. It’s my favorite piece of digital music of all time. By the way, it’s additionally the tune I might in all probability have performed at my funeral, only for the irony of it being referred to as ‘Alive’.
