My own iPod crashed and burned out - happily a close friend hastily arranged the loaner

My iPod let me down at the birth. It was aging to begin with I guess. Perhaps not much longer for this place, it fell during a particularly arduous night and couldn't get up. As a consequence all of the music we planned to ease our new daughter into the world with was lost to us. Happily, a close friend hastily arranged for us to borrow their newer more reliable model. It was set to ramble, I mean random, and here, from the thousands of songs available, I kid you not, are the astonishingly odd, unnaturally apt array of tunes selected immediately before, during and after the arrival of Oona Lark Walker...

These artists and songs that eased Oona Lark into the world and made us all feel better at the time, thanks for the music you Top Stars

Duke Ellington - A Lull Before The Dawn
Coldplay - Warning Sign
Duke Ellington - Arabesque
Nick Drake - Sunday
New Order - State of the Nation
Galaxie 500 - Spook
The Fall - New Face in Hell
Fall- Feeling Numb
REM - Swan Swan Hummingbird
Prince - Money Don't Matter 2 Me
Nick Cave - Tupelo
Arcade Fire - Black Wave/Bad Vibrations
Tom Waits - Warm Beer and Cold Women
Radiohead - National Anthem
Babyshambles - Delivery
Bruce Springsteen - Born in the USA
Thievery Corporation - Focus on Sight
Rolling Stones - Some Girls
Beethoven's Symphony #1, Op 2 in C Maj
Morrissey - Ordinary Boys
Radiohead - Morning Bell
Fall - High Tension Line
Morrissey - Breaking Up The Family
Jonathan Richman - She Doesn't Laugh at My Jokes
White Stripes - There is No Home For You Here

So despite that cacophony, the good news is, Oona Lark at 7 weeks still likes to rock. An early favorite seemingly, me mumbling Quo's classic Rockin All Over the World. Repeatedly. It works!

HELP OUTSIDELEFT

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]

WRITE FOR OUTSIDELEFT

If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
