The Eighth Uncut Playlist Of 2012

One of those mornings walking to work when, in spite of 18,000 or whatever songs on my iPod, I couldn’t figure out what to play. It’s at that point I realised Joni Mitchell’s “Hejira” had become my last resort record; not my favourite, exactly (although I could make a stern case for it, for sure), but the one I can always rely on, whatever my mood or the circumstances.

Over on my Twitter feed – www.twitter.com/JohnRMulvey – I asked for other #lastresortrecords (though I only remembered to use a hashtag second time; still learning, I guess) and got a load of great answers: someone reminded me to import “Either/Or” onto iTunes, for a start Please have a look and join in.
