In celebration of all things Welsh today, here's some St David’s Day music to get you going for a big night out this weekend.


Stereophonics - Local Boy In A Photograph

The track that introduced the 'Phonics to the world back in 1997. Taken from their debut album 'Word Gets Around', the trio from the Valleys came to take over the charts armed with guitars and a handful of catchy pop-rock ditties.


Goldie Lookin Chain - Guns Don't Kill People Rappers Do

For a few months in 2005 Goldie Lookin Chain were the talk of the town - and we don't just mean Newport. Their album was genuinely belly-laugh funny, but the novelty had a shelf life. One of them went on to be a part of the greatest Celebrity Big Brother of all time. The rest we haven't heard so much from.


Manic Street Preachers - Motorcycle Emptiness

Flying the flag for Wales in the Britpop era, the Manics are rarely seen without the Welsh dragon on stage these days. This one from 1992 is a typically anthemic gem about the perils of social conformity.


Nomad - Devotion

The early 90s rave scene didn't pass Wales by either. Cardiff's Nomad reached the Top 10 in 1990 with Devotion, one of the many dance-pop crossover records that infiltrated the charts post-Summer of Love. Get the glowsticks out.


Tom Jones - It's Not Unusual

No playlist would be complete without him. The most varnished man in Britain can still be seen bigging up Wales week in, week out on BBC's The Voice. Top bloke.


The Automatic - Monster

Gold discs? Brit Awards? None of it compares to the feeling of hearing your song turned into a football chant. That's exactly what happened when Wigan and Spurs fans turned The Automatic's 'Monster' into a tribute to defender Pascal Chimbonda. Priceless.
