The Songs

This blog has a soundtrack that plays in my head while I write. Sometimes the song influences the post and sometimes the post influences the choice of song. Once in a while there is absolutely no connection between the 2 – Mostly because the song is a good 1 and it forced its way into my headspace.

Here then is the soundtrack to Longworth72.com – Listed below are the songs (and the performers that I had in mind) and the Soups that they are matched to.

Alt rock legends Weezer and Feist have 9 and 5 tunes respectively. Mark Knopfler also has 6 entries (5 with Dire Straits) while Brisbane’s finest, Powderfinger, muscle in with 4.

Further honourable mentions go to Longworth72 favourites, The Killers (5) and to The Verve (3). The Finn boys, Tim and Neil, rack up 6 gongs via 4 acts (Split Enz, Crowded House, Tim Finn, The Finn Brothers).

They’re brilliant musos, all of them.

Because this list is constantly evolving and because my old schoolin’ web designer of a mate Gav loves them so much I thought at this point that I’d insert the cheesiest graphic I could find:

Under Construction

See Gav – It has bevelled edges and it flashes. Classy, that is.
