Sunday evening used to be the time when we’d all listen to the radio and find out who the number one now. Nowadays no one really cares. It’s easy to forget what an appointment to listen it really was for anyone under the age of 30. Anyway, given I decided I wasn’t go to think about politics or work today, and for lack of anything better to do, I’ve been compiling my own list of my 100 favourite songs of all time. You know how I love a list…

I know a lot of people think I have a terrible taste in music, and they’re probably right. Bovvered! I guarantee that in this list you’ll be shocked at some of my choices, horrified by others, will crack a smile at a few, but if I can introduce you to a few new little gems you’ve never heard of I’ll consider the time I have put into this worthwhile.

Here goes… I’ll post the next three installments over the course of the evening….
