This week we learnt that no one cooks up fine tunes like a celebrity chef. After taking our fill of videos starring Jamie Oliver on the drums and gorging ourselves on Loyd Grossman's edgy take on punk, we thought we'd make this week's theme all about that little bit on the side. It's almost the weekend get ready to put aside the day job and make like a DJ...
Genius of Love by Tom Tom Club
“The Tom Tom Club were the 'side project' of The Talking Heads' Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz. Does that count? Yes. Yes it does.”
St. James Infirmary Blues by Hugh Laurie
“Obvious choice from me. The actor and comedian who has a neat sideline in jazz piano (AKA The Dream)”
Getting Away With It by Electronic
“Dangerously high levels of 90s Northern miserablism here: New Order, The Smiths and Pet Shop Boys. Don't know how much I related to this as a five-year-old. The video is shite. Good tune though. Johnny Marr's guitar solo is great.”
Clint Eastwood by Gorillaz
“Damon Albarn, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz and Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, amazing!”
Falling Down by Scarlett Johansson
“I rather liked Scarlett Johansson singing Tom Waits' Falling Down. David Bowie on backing vocals!”
I Want You So Hard by Eagles Of Death Metal
“My ginger hero with one of his side projects”
Lose Your Soul by Dead Man's Bones
"All of the ones I wanted to suggest had crap video or would've just been a bit weird (Jay Rayner playing Jazz piano, the Jumbo boomers)
So, I'm going wildly boring, with Ryan Gosling's band, Dead Man's bones: This song is actually wicked."
Party All The Time by Eddie Murphy
“The multi-talented Eddie Murphy. Such a tune!”
Common People by William Shatner
"Captain Kirk does Pulp…"
Keep The Streets Empty For Me by Fever Ray
"I was going to suggest the raw, reggae rhythms of Stars are Blind but then, realising that Paris Hilton doesn't actually have a main project, thought that would be something of an error. Try this instead."
