My favourite song is

You put your green shirt on, your blue shorts on, your football socks, your football boots and then you're number 1. You do the Ian Bennett and you turn around. That's what its all about.
Wohhh ian Bennett....

I will try and think of the other 9 once I have stopped singing this.

Yep been a favourite slot for a number of years now the old 'tracks of my years' ......

Here goes for a random top 10 ...

1. Guinevere - CSN ... Sublime harmonies

2. Nick Drake - River Man ... Bliss & as for his sister 😎
3. Simon & Garfunkel - Frank Lloyd Wright ... Viewed a documentary recently about FLW & finally understood what all the fuss was about.
4. Joni Mitchell - Cotton Avenue ... Again the harmonies & a fantastic bass line in this ditty ...
5. Steely Dan - Aja ... Steve Gadd at his very best.
6. Joe Jackson - Nineteen forever .. We all wish !!
7. Eddie Kendricks - Keep on truckin ... Could have picked a list full of soul music from the late 60's to mid 70's as it was a magnificent period for that genre, but I went for this as it was also a ringtone to Denel Washingtons character in the film Roman J Israel esq.
8. Gil Scott Heron - B movie ... A truly outstanding summary of Americana at the time of writing.
9. Ian Dury & the Blockheads - Razzle in my pocket ... In the days when 'porn' was a copy of H&E.
10. Van Morrison - In the days before Rock & roll... Just so bloody good.

It'll probably change again in half an hour .....

The Beatles - Here Comes The Sun
Buggles - Video Killed The Radio Star
Britney Spears - Baby One More Time
Kulashaker - Tattva

Don't ask - yes I have a pretty wide taste in Music, basically all of these tunes apply to things I was doing when they either came out, or I became familiar with them when I was doing stuff. Some involve a break-up which hit me hard at the time. Some remind me of better times, work, or social stuff. Some stick in the mind from when I was a kid. But christ, this list could have 5 times as many tunes in it.
