TOP TEN (LONG LIST)

190171749641

Okay, This has been a real labour of love… I’m a complete nervous wreck… I have worked on this for 8 hours… I have made only a few stipulations to my all-time top ten songs:

  • I have the song in my collection
  • only one song per artiste/group (couple of cheats with guests on different tracks)
  • The song has to give me goosebumps (hence the fact my nerves are shot to pieces)

Given that I have over 40,000 songs in my database you understand how large an accomplishment this list represents. This is my long list, I shall transfer them onto my mp3 player and live with them for a week, then by next saturday I hope to bring in a shortlist.
