Track Listing from April Britpop Revival Show

Owing to a variety of reasons, some planned and some unplanned, there had not been a Britpop Revival Radio Show for a couple of months.  So to make it up to people I decided to make this show a 'Hit' special.

Being a monthly live show on a local FM station, BRRS is usually more mainstream than Vapour Trails, our weekly, specialist show.  However for this edition I decided that every song would be a Top 40 hit from a different artist.  (Well, there was one song that only made it to 41 - got to break the rules somewhere!)

This is the playlist:

  1. Blur - Parklife
  2. Elastica - Waking Up
  3. The Bluetones - Slight Return
  4. Manic Street Preachers - La Tristesse Durera (Scream To A Sigh)
  5. The Chemical Brothers (ft Noel Gallagher) - Setting Sun
  6. Kula Shaker - Hey Dude
  7. Oasis - Supersonic
  8. 60 Ft. Dolls - Talk To Me
  9. Gay Dad - To Earth With Love
  10. Radiohead - Karma Police
  11. Gene - We Could Be Kings
  12. Supergrass - Pumping On Your Stereo
  13. The Candyskins - Monday Morning
  14. Cast - Alright
  15. Cataonia - Mulder and Scully
  16. The Boo Radleys - Wake Up Boo!
  17. The Seahorses - Love Me and Leave Me
  18. The Charlatans - Tellin' Stories
  19. Echobelly - Insomniac
  20. Dodgy - Staying Out For The Summer
  21. James - Runaground
  22. The Auteurs - Lenny Valentino
  23. Suede - Beautiful Ones
  24. The Supernaturals - Smile
  25. Sleeper - Nice Guy Eddie
  26. Ash - Burn Baby Burn
  27. Pulp - Common People
  28. Shed Seven - Getting Better
  29. The Verve - Sonnet
That is a lot of quality tunes!

  1. What an awesome blog ! I just discovered britpop through the UK90Z blog and then found this site. Looks like I have a lot of happy listening ahead. Two big thumbs up my friend.

    As a North American survivor of the grunge and grunge wannabees in the 90's, i grew up worshiping, and playing, and revelling in what is the 4 minute guitar pop mastery that was britpop. Its fantastic to see I can still find my musical zen on the radio...

    Thank you, I will be listening!

  3. Thanks for those kind words both of you. Hope you're enjoying the shows, much more to come!
