1. I Don't Want To Talk About It
1975 Warner Bros. Records Inc.
This takes me straight back to my childhood days and although it is 35 years old, it still today is very special to me and hasn't lost any of its magic.
2. Come Live With Me Angel
1976 Motown Records
Certainly this is a less well-known song of Mr.Genius, but definitely one of my favourites.
3. Follow You Follow Me
1978 Virgin Records Ltd.
Full of memories and a blueprint of melancholic influences, that found their way into my music. It has this timeless strong character which makes it a contemporary piece of music in whatever decade.
4. The Working Our
Tears For Fears
A huge masterpiece, this is. An arrangement with so many superb and different parts together in one song makes The Working Our so outstanding. I find it remarkable how Roland Orzabal's voice, in combination with a melancholic saxophone play, takes you down memory lane in such a conveniently hurting manner. This is a monument in my musical education.
1995 Ovum Recordings
It's the chords, it's the down tempo groove with its cool percussions and it's the voice and vocals which make this song an all-time classic to me. "We can be free together, relax your mind". King Britt at its best.
6. Borrowed Love
I'm a huge fan and very proud of my collection of SOS Band releases. They had so many extremely inspiring songs and for sure had a great impact on me.
7. On The Border
1976 EMI Records
Like so many of my favourite songs, it is the minor keys which make you want to sit and gaze for a while at the world passing by.
8. Someone Somewhere (In Summertime)
1982 Virgin Records
This song was introduced to me in 1985 and is a great anthem to me ever since. Listening to this track is like looking over my shoulder.
1974 Union Square Music
When it comes to chords, this one really impresses me. It is anyway one the coolest vinyls in my collection.
10. Planetary Deadlock
I played this record so many times at home. Meanwhile it sounds more like a campfire with all its crackles and flares. I'm glad I recorded it onto my computer in time because I'm still enjoying this one a lot.
THE TIMEWRITER'S NEW ALBUM "TIEFENSCHÖN" IS OUT ON 23rd OF MARCH ON PLASTIC CITY. AVAILABLE ON VINYL, CD AND IN ONLINE STORES.
