Tis true but the order could change on a daily basis, Round Here as a special something for me, it's a personal thing.
Perfect Blue Buildings is the perfect song.


Oh, why vs Cardiff ?

90's

R.E.M 'Nightswimming'
Quite possibly my favourite REM song
Saw a tribute act at a local festival a couple of years ago, Stipe, I think they were called, did an excellent job of it.

Anna begins scans beautifully. It's usually my number one. Such emotion too

70's

Isley Brothers 'Summer Breeze"

Whilst the original version released by Seals & Crofts in 72 is superb, I think difficult to surpass the Isley Brother's 73/74 release

Not sure if I am going completely mad, but one of the songs I was going to put forward for the 70's, was Al Stewart 'Year of the cat", however seemed to remember it may have already been put forward previously. Cut to the case, have a listen to the below you tube track version. Go to 1.29 minutes, does he sing, "strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorimer"? :shock: Was Al Stewart a Leeds fan???

Seals & Croft were very underrated, two great versions Azkal

Love 'Guitar Man' too

Yes 'Year of the Cat' has been nominated previously

Seems your correct, I don't know why, had an idea it had been previously written in 1969.
