Top of my pops

with 5 comments

It always feels weird doing one of those end of the year lists. Partly because it could look like one is full of ego, like, my taste rules! But also because, in this iPod age, newer records don’t get put at the front of a pile and listened to more often like they used to.

Still, I like to read other end of year lists, if for no other reason than to check out what I’ve missed and should pick up in the January sales.

So, my ten favourite songs of the year. Feel free to share your favourites in the comments.

(It’s pretty tight in the top three of those songs. Having just listened to them all again, I’m tempted to change the order, especially listening to the beautiful guitar solo on “Either Way” which reminds me so much of lovely warm summer mornings and lovely warm summer evenings in the park with Billy.)

  2. I love Top-Ten-lists. I just bought all songs except Boring ( I had) and Skylon! (only with album). I trust your taste. Thanks

  3. I don’t worry about looking egotistical, because my taste actually does rule.
