Tuesday Tunes v CSFF Blog Tour: Beyond the Reflection's Edge

Well, it would hardly be a blog tour without a Top Ten, so here we go: the Top Ten mirror-based songs:

10. Diana Ross & the Supremes - Reflections
I probably would have gone for the Four Tops' version in preference, but this was on mixwit.

9. Velvet Underground - I'll be Your Mirror
Taken from the album with the banana on the sleeve.

8. Human League - Mirror Man
Ah, the New Romantics....

7. Michael Jackson - Man in the Mirror
Now I don't normally watch The X Factor once all the weirdos have been laughed out of the auditions, but I did like this song the other night. So that's my British telly reference for the tour covered...

6. UB40 - Looking Down at My Reflection
And here are my white Brummies doing reggae.

5. The Kinks - Mirror of Love
Not vintage Ray, from the Rock Opera Preservation.

4. Hawkwind - Mirror of Illusion
There's always a spot for Hawkwind in my Top Tens.

3. Enigma - The Screen Behind the Mirror
They never quite matched the boogying monk madness of their debut CD, but I like 'em.

2. Duran Duran - The Reflex
Ok, so I got a bit stuck.

1. Petra - Magic Mirror
Not only the perfect song for the book, but by my favourite Christian rock band! Hooray! Sadly, not available for the mixtape. Booo!

So here is this week's mixtape for your listening pleasure while you wait for your copy of Beyond the Reflection's Edge...

Okay, this has got to be the most creative thing I've seen today. I will pay you the highest compliment I can: "I wish I had thought of this!"

Why thank you sir. :)

In return for your kind words, I will gladly avoid your blog from now on. (Or at least just look at the pictures.)

Thanks Matthew - next time I'll ask you before I resort to fudging Duran Duran titles... :)

Hey, I can't believe you (and I) forget the most obvious song-

Kraftwerk- Hall of Mirrors

"Even the greatest stars, live their lives in a looking glass.."

You're right, I should have got that one!
