Fantasy Album

Frank Turner Positive Songs For Negative People Review

Source: Album Artwork

Welcome to the world of fantasy albums where music fans are put to the test to decipher their ultimate album. Last time Palace revealed their fantasy album tracklisting. This week’s fantasy album comes from singer-songwriter, Frank Turner.

The rules are simple(ish): they can’t repeat an artist, and to just make it that little bit more interesting – they have to use the same track number from another album i.e track 1 could be the opening track of the wonderful Stone Roses’ debut ‘I Wanna Be Adored’. Track 2 could be Blur’s ‘Song 2′. You get the idea.

1. ‘Constructive Summer’ – The Hold Steady

“A perfect album opener, and one of the most positive, uplifting songs I know. It makes me want to drink beer and shout the lyrics and cry.”

2. ‘Salvador’ – Jamie T

“Getting the record up and running, this is a dance floor filler if ever I heard one.”

3. ‘Elephant’ – Jason Isbell

“This is a downer of a song, but it’s one of the most powerful lyrics ever. A stunning piece of music.”

4. ‘On The Radio’ – Regina Spektor

“Bringing the vibe back up again. Regina is an amazing songwriter, and I love the sunny vibes of this one.”

5. ‘Pillowhead’ – Failure

“A hugely underrated band. And the album needs some grit, some dirt under its fingernails.”

6. ‘Twistin’ The Night Away (live at Harlem Square)’ – Sam Cooke

“Keeping the party going with one of the greatest singers of all time at his absolute best.”

7. ‘We Are The Heathens’ – Van Pelt

“This band changed how I think about music and lyrics when I was younger. Mongol Horde got their band name from this song.”

8. ‘Milk It’ – Nirvana

“Fuck metal, this is one of the heaviest songs ever recorded.”

9. ‘Hast Thou Considered The Tetrapod’ – The Mountain Goats

“I am obsessed with TMG lately, and with song titles and lyrics like this, it’s not hard to see why.”

10. ‘Reminiscent’ – Josh Rouse

“Ending on a gentle note, with a song from an artist who hugely influenced me in my early solo days.”
