Talking About My Generation: Alan’s Top Ten Tracks

Our new community reporter Alan Kinsey has shared his top ten favourite tracks with us and explains why he’s picked each one.

1. Band of Gold – Freda Payne     

I joined the Army at 15 and this was first song heard in the NAAFI (break room equivalent).

2. Montego Bay – Bobby Bloom     

Celebrates my first acting promotion in the Army.

3. Ziggy Stardust – David Bowie   

Awesome record that coincided with my call sign Zulu India and I am still called Ziggy by most people today.

4. Bright Eyes – Art Garfunkel

This was number one in the charts when my son Carl was born.

5. Wherever I lay my hat – Paul Young 

It was difficult leaving the forces and I drifted a lot.

6. Unforgettable – Nat King Cole    

I never tire of this record it epitomises my wife Hazel and I am truly blessed.

7. Brothers In Arms – Dire Straits       

Unless you have served you cannot understand this.

8. Red, Red Wine – UB40    

This one just gets me up.

9. Black Horse & the cherry tree – KT Tunstall     

Amazing artist and this her finest.

10. Still Haven’t found what I’m looking for – U2  

Just resonates with the struggle after the Army.

 

What would be on your top ten list?
