This weekend, the flavour is very musical, as I ask:
What are your top ten all time favourite songs and by whom? Can you say why?
Here are my choices:
1: Hey Jude by The Beatles: Strictly the version sung by them in 1968, and not any pop concert covers. A great classic.
2: American Pie by Don McLean: Only the full 8 min 27 seconds version here. Have you worked out all the meanings? Do you know all the words? Easily the best to hum along with.
3: Whisky In The Jar by Thin Lizzy: Put the volume up high for this one. It's the best for all those who wanted to air guitar. Brilliant.
4: Summer Breeze by the Isley Brothers: The perfect summer record to play in the warm sunshine.
5: Dancing Queen by Abba: Their best record that gets me singing it long after. It was a pleasure to hear it in the stage show 'Mamma Mia!'.
6: San Francisco by Scott McKenzie: What can I say? A perfect record.
7: A Whiter Shade Of Pale by Procul Harum: Voted by many as the best record of the 1960's.
8: Something In The Air by Thunderclap Newman: A wonderful song; just right.
9: Something by The Beatles: A great song often imitated, never bettered.
10: Wind Beneath My Wings by Bette Midler: This tearjerker from 'Beaches' is beautifully sung.
Now it's over to you....
