Men of note - Mr Robert Plant
'Growing Up Beside You'
paolo Nutini
Five million albums sold worldwide and some impressive stage-sharing with Mr Paul Weller and The Rolling Stones have placed Mr Nutini at the very top of the pop game - and all at the age of 24. Currently back in the studio working on his third album, he talks us through the tracks on his playlist right now
'Slap and Tickle'
Squeeze
"A song full of swagger. First line: 'She was frigid like a Bible when she met her boyfriend Michael'. Absolutely brilliant."
'Victims of the Darkness'
Allen Toussaint

"The lyrics are genius and the song conveys a great message."
'Tears'
Django Reinhardt & StÉphane Grappelli

"There are no words, just music and that's all it needs. Reinhardt on his guitar, Grappelli on his violin and the Quintette du Hot Club de France. It sets the scene perfectly and leaves you feeling comfortably and cozily sad."
'Love Comes In Spurts'
Richard Hell & The Voidoids

"Hell had attitude coming out of every pore. It's a song that gives you the confidence to say what you think, and if it offends a few folk along the way, then so be it. You're always going to offend somebody, or offend everybody, by being so inoffensive."
'Love Comes In Spurts'
Joe Tex

"A nice message. Some of the most inspiring tales are told by people who have stuck with each other, no matter what."
Mr Nutini's latest studio album, Sunny Side Up, is out now
