Space Station 5 – Celebrity Playlist: Alannah Myles

This week’s Space Station 5 comes to us from Alannah Myles.

“I was hard pressed to choose only 5. Simply not possible.

If I was gone for six months on the space station I know I would not be content to limit my choices to only 5 albums. My appetite for music varies exceedingly. I know I’d be missing my beloved Bengal kitty, Ariel. Undoubtedly he’d not be equipped for space travel and I’m sure I’d be pining for a collection of songs close to my heart or at the very least, music that brings me a sense of comfort which I can always find when listening to the only album ever recorded by Crosby Stills Nash & Young: Déjà vu.

Out there in the vast blue yonder I’m sure I’d feel a tremendous longing for one of my favourite bands, Little Feat.

And lastly, despite potential for any presumed self-aggrandizement, I’d choose from my Rockinghorse album, Song Instead Of a Kiss. A song I co-wrote for Sir Robert (Plant) which unceremoniously served as his inspiration for his having written 29 Palms. Song would make a perfect soundscape for any Space Station backdrop. ”
