Maxx Palmer's Playlist

Song from the first album you ever bought/listened to?

I grew up a bit of an Oasis fan, one of the first songs I learned to play on the guitar was Wonderwall, I remember listening over and over to that album, (What’s the story) Morning Glory.


A song you wish you had written?

Christ, a tough one – If I had to say just one – Elton John – Tiny Dancer


A song that inspires you?

I’m a big fan of the Jeff Buckley, any song from the Grace album, but if I had to pick one? – Last Goodbye


Last song you purchased?

Im enjoy adding to my vinyl collection, I recently bought Doobie Brothers – Long Train Running


A song that makes you feel nostalgic?

I am a big Radiohead fan – Weird Fishes - is a great track to sit back and listen to


Your favourite sing-along song in the shower?

Has to be – Harry Nilsson – Gotta Get Up


A song that confirmed your love for music?

I grew up in a real music orientated house… Mum was always playing stuff like Dusty Springfield – The Windmills of your mind stands out for me


A song you put on when getting ready for a big night out?

I am partial to a bit of Iggy Pop – Lust for Life


The song do you put on repeat if you’ve just had your heart broken?

Never had heart broken yet… I broke a guitar – is that the same thing? – So for this one Im putting Tom Petty – Learning to Fly


Your worst guilty pleasure song?

I have been known to (occasionally) bust out the air guitar when Guns N Roses’Sweet Child O’Mine comes on at a party!
