State Mix #19: Mike Scott

Number nineteen in our ongoing State Mix series is pretty special, even if we do say so ourselves, brought to us as it is by Mike Scott of The Waterboys in his Mick Puck guise. His Orchestral Pop Fantasia mix explores the point where the two worlds of pop and classical crossover, via a series of well known tracks, obscurities and mash ups.

The tracklisting is as follows:

  1. La Danse Des Mouches – Jean-Claude Vannier
  2. Plastic Palace People (extract) – Scott Walker
  3. Black Theme – Ennio Morricone
  4. Gimme Shelter – The Rolling Stones
  5. Le Roi Des Mouches – Jean-Claude Vannier
  6. L’Ultimo – Ennio Morricone
  7. Love Of An Orchestra – Noah And The Whale
  8. Jackie – Scott Walker
  9. Silver (extract) – Echo & The Bunnymen
  10. Glam Groove mash – T. Rex & others
  11. Plastic Palace People (extract) – Scott Walker
  12. A Tramp Shining – Richard Harris
  13. Eleanor Rigby (instrumental) – The Beatles
  14. My Mistakes Were Made For You – The Last Shadow Puppets
  15. Wonderwall To Be Here – George Harrison
  16. Take Me With You – Liz Fraser
  17. Plastic Palace People (extract) – Scott Walker
