I was cleaning out the ol' hard drive last night and came across a bunch of files I split off for this meme. Here are ten songs beginning with the letter P, with links to MP3s on sendspace. If you want these files after the links die, just comment and I'll send them along. If you comment I will inflict a letter upon you.

Power House - Bobby Hammack Combo from Ultralounge 3 - Space-Capades
I'm sure this is used in old loony tunes cartoons. This is one of the tracks that started my love of the ultralounge series.

Poison Ivy - The Coasters from Atlantic Rhythm & Blues 4 (1957-60)
I remember this playing in an Ed's Easy Diner, I think when I was with the Badger. It only jumped out on the line "You'll need an ocean / of camomile lotion".

Play To Me Gypsy - Henry Hall from The Music Goes 'Round and Around
Discovered when researching 30's music for Dancing at Lughnasa. We then opened the second act with a couple of the cast singing it.

Pierrette's Theme - Handsome George from Six Left Feet
Written by the delightful Mr. George for JAKAL. Played under Pierrette's fantasy that somebody asks her to dance.

Phrenology - Florodora from the Finborough Cast Recording
A lovely patter song from this little performed musical. Watch out for Maiden of the Hills coming in December.

Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps - Cake from Fashion Nugget
I love this song. We used the classic recording in Six Left Feet. This is a bit less formal.

Performance Alpha - Seigmen from Radiowaves
I saw this band supporting Paradise Lost in Wolverhampton. All of my party bought this album.

Penny Lane - Wilson Malone Voice Band from the Exotic Beatles
My brother bought me this album of ludicrous beatles covers. I always thought this sounded quite bonzoesque.

PC - Electric Hedge from Perfection
The dodgy rock demo from Perfection turns out to be the dodgy rock demo of the playwright. He's on drums.

Paddington Bear (size ten shuffle) - (I wish I knew) from Themes from Childrens BBC
Doesn't this bring back memories? I wasn't sure if this counted but then I decided I liked it too much.

There ya go. Not necessarily my favourite ten P songs (the shortlist was 50 long), but I hope there is something new for everyone in there.

Apparently Herbert Chappell wrote the Paddington theme.

Thank-you for that. It was a niggling ommision.

Should you wish for a letter, which I'm not sure you do, I would give you C for Chappell.
