In the words of Moby Grape… listen, my friends! Yes, it’s the (hopefully) monthly playlist presented by George’s Journal just for you good people.

There may be one or two classics to be found here dotted in among different tunes you’re unfamiliar with or have never heard before – or, of course, you may’ve heard them all before. All the same, why not sit back, listen away and enjoy…

¹ David Lean’s masterful, multi-Oscar-winning, near-anti-war epic, with which this theme is so intimately associated, celebrates its 60th anniversary this autumn

² Goldie Hawn, the subject of the video that accompanies this tune, established herself as a late ’60s ‘It Girl’ thanks to her bubbly dumb blonde persona on the classic NBC sketch comedy Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In (1968-73), in which she appeared for the first three seasons, sometimes memorably in the bikini-clad, body-painted manner showcased here

3 From the soundtrack of the seminal sci-fi adventure Blade Runner (1982); the composition actually predates the movie, having originally appeared on Vangelis’s 1980 album, See You Later
