The Weekly Playlist - KingQueen
For this week’s playlist we asked our readers to give us their recommendations. Here is what they shared with us.

Jose D. Rodriguez – Filmmaker, Los Angeles
Jose picked rock band KingQueen who in 2013 won LA’s Hard Rock Rising battle of the bands.

KingQueen – Roller Coaster


 
Devika Chitnis – Journalist, Mumbai
Dexy’s Midnight Runners – Come On Eileen
“This was recently in the soundtrack of The Perks Of Being a Wallflower and my then boyfriend recommended it to me.”


 
Billy Ray Cyrus – How’s My World Treatin’ You
“My mom introduced me to this song. It’s interesting in terms of who it’s written to – it’s written by an ex-husband to his ex-wife’s current partner.”


 
Shawn Fernandes – Photographer/Writer, Mumbai
Arcade Fire – Here Comes The Night Time
“I’d definitely choose this video/live gig for Arcade Fire’s Here Comes The Night Time. The video is directed by Roman Coppola, with cameos by Bono, Ben Stiller, James Franco, Rainn Wilson, Michael Cera and Zach Galifianakis.”


 
The Smashing Pumpkins – Bullet With Butterfly Wings
“I only recently found out that this was inspired (way back then) by the work of the photographer Sebastiao Selgado, who I discovered a few years ago so it was a pretty “Oh Wow” moment.”


 
Chic – Good Times (Live at Budokan 1996)
“The last ever concert to feature the legendary Bernard Edwards of Chic before he passed away. This is the bassline that inspired Rapper’s Delight by the Sugarhill Gang and also got Queen’s John Deacon riled up enough to try and match it with Another One Bites The Dust.”


 
Daniel Eceolaza – Filmmaker, Berlin
The Original Northern Island – The Wind Beneath The Stones
“Good friends never stop surprising you. From the very beginning, as my friendship with The Original Northern Island and his gifted voice.”


 
Arpana Gvalani – Restaurateur, Mumbai
“I’ve been listening to Kings of Leon’s last album Mechanical Bull. I’ve always been a fan, [they have a] unique vocalist and I love the bass lines of all their tracks, especially Family Tree.”

Kings Of Leon – Family Tree

 
Stuart DaCosta – Musician, Mumbai
Yohan Marshall – Your Silence
Your Silence is a song that speaks to me pretty directly. Quite rare for songwriters nowadays.”


 
Baycity Lights – Glued
