Every week, Zan Rowe invites a guest in to pick five songs around a theme. Along the way we hear a heap of stories, and find out a whole lot more about their musical heart. We might even partake in a bit of therapy. Join us.

The Streets Take 5 with songs of then and now

In the early 00’s The Streets burst onto the scene. Original Pirate Material was like nothing else around. Combining garage beats with everyday stories from a geezer we could all relate to. Mike Skinner wanted to literally push things forward, taking the garage genre in a new direction and using his lyrics to talk about what was really going on inside the hearts and minds of people in the clubs. It struck a chord, and The Streets got a lot of attention. Over five albums Mike Skinner would tour Australia a whole lot, always playing festivals and always drawing a huge crowd. Then in 2011 he called it a day, releasing his final album and doing his final shows as The Streets. Music stayed in his life though. He threw himself into producing, directing, and most notably DJ-ing, behind the decks instead of out front on stage. Across his five songs choices we get a snapshot of a kid writing raps in his notebook in a hostel in Sydney. As well as the man today who is older, wiser, more grounded but with plenty of stories to tell. From Johnny Cash to Grim Sickers to Daft Punk, this is The Streets, Taking 5 with Zan Rowe and playing us his songs from then and now. Johnny Cash – 'A Boy Named Sue' Snoop Dogg – 'Serial Killa (ft. The D.O.C., Tha Dogg Pound and RBX)' Grim Sickers – 'Open the Till (ft. Ghetts and Mike Skinner)' Daniel Bedingfield – 'Gotta Get Through This' Daft Punk – 'Human After All / Together / One More Time / Music Sounds Better With You' (from Alive 2007)

The Streets Take 5 with songs of then and now

Mark Ronson's songs of pop perfection

Where do you begin with Mark Ronson? 7 Grammys, an Oscar, and so many hit records over 15 years of writing and producing music. He may not sing, but he’s topped the charts in every other way; crafting 'Uptown Funk', co-writing 'Shallow' with Lady Gaga, and collaborating with musicians from right across the genre map. Ever since that debut album back in 2003, I’ve been a fan. The way he scooped up hip-hop, soul, and funk into perfect pop packages grabbed my attention and kept it. Over the years Mark and I have crossed paths a few times but he’s never done a Take 5. And the opportunity to get inside the musical mind of Mark Ronson is something I’ve been hankering to do for a long time. From OutKast to The Smiths, King Princess to Kacey Musgraves to Prince, hear one of the world's great producers explore how their songs define pop perfection for him. King Princess - ‘1950’ The Smiths - ‘Stop Me if You Think You’ve Heard This One Before’ Outkast - ‘Ms. Jackson’ Kacey Musgrave...

Jen Cloher is a beacon in Australian music. She’s one of our best songwriters, and a great champion of her peers. Whether it's running management workshops, or co-founding Milk Records, her sage advice and keen ears propel others. But what about the artists who light a path for her? From Patti Smith to Gareth Liddiard, Camp Cope to PJ Harvey, this is a conversation about so much more than music. Adalita - ‘Free Money {Live}’ The Drones - ‘Taman Shud’ Camp Cope ‘The Opener’ PJ Harvey - ‘The Words That Maketh Murder’ Evelyn Ida Morris - ‘The Body Appears’
