Richard Blade shares his best song picks for 5 special moments – Orange County Register

Richard Blade knows a thing or two about music. The English DJ and radio personality, who is currently out promoting his autobiography, “World in My Eyes,” shared some of the songs (or albums) he thinks are the best for certain situations in life during a recent interview.

Whether it’s making out, dancing the night away or dealing with a broken heart, Blade’s got a song (or album) for that.

Q: What is the best song to listen to as you’re getting ready to go out for the night? 

A: When I’m getting ready for a gig, I listen to New Order and Pet Shop Boys. Having said that, my favorite to Pet Shop Boys and New Order albums to listen to, believe it or not, is the latest New Order, which came out two and a half years ago called “Music Complete” … and Pet Shop Boys’ “Electric,” which was their album just before the last one, but it’s staggeringly good.
