Please let me know if you will be in Durban when you visit SA again, I will definitely meet with you. It would be stunning to have you over on my side of the planet :razz:

Ciao!

Vik.
Hi Vik

Durban is a bit far... as we do all the work in OR Tambo and at the DHA HQ in Pretoria. However, if I can I might take some time off and plan a visit to Durban!

There is so much going on this summer... in SA, the Lions, Conf Cup (we have tkts for this)... won't get bored working for the SA Govt!!!!
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be like water my friend.

More for the feel than the technical music ability, but top two will aways be:

Don't waste my time - Quo
La Grange - ZZ top

If I'm ever down, these 2 do the trick! 8)

Pink Floyd - Time
Clash - Bank Robber
Guns n Roses version Wild Horses
Aerosmith - Crazy
Fleetwood Mac - Albatross
Alarm - Rain in the Summer time

Well I kinda deviated from the original question anyway. When you get to 44 it's hard to have 'a' fav song.

Easier to list the worst songs I reckon

One individual song is pretty hard, depends a lot on mood.

If it's desert Island Discs style then it's a bit easier. Slightly.

Pink Floyd: Bike
Laurent Garnier: Crispy Bacon
Skatalites: Guns of Navarone
Public Enemy: Fight The Power
Mr Lif: Live From The Plantation
Led Zeppelin: Black Dog
A+E Department: And The Rabbit's Name Was ...
Primal Scream: Don't Fight It, Feel It [can't find youtube link]
The Pogues: Dirty Old Town
The Animals: House of the Rising Sun
