There has been another one of those Facebook memes going round of late, usually they get right on my pip, but this one caught my attention in a favourable way. Basically if you’re “tagged” you have to share one of your favourite songs on Facebook for seven days. It got me thinking about what songs I would choose should I ever be tagged and I decided to choose my top ten, not just my top seven.
As a confirmed indie kid I had a few problems narrowing it down from the thousands of tunes I love and listen to regularly. Some were instant, obvious choices, some others I agonised over for a little while, struggling to decide between two or three of my favourite songs from whichever band. It was a difficult task, but I’m glad I sat down and made my own YouTube playlist, it means that I always have 50 minutes of my favourite music on hand for a start.
I’m not sure what my musical choices say about me, other than “indie kid stuck in the mid-90s” but I’m sure there’s a Buzz-feed quiz which will tell me all I need to know about my inner thoughts and feelings.
Here’s my all time favourite top ten. It is a movable feast because I’m sure in six months time it’ll have changed slightly, it always does, but for now, these are the songs which speak to my soul (in no particular order)…
- Sometimes – James
- Devil In Your Shoes – Shed Seven
- Temptation – New Order
- Fools Gold – The Stone Roses
- Married With Children – Oasis
- Right here – The Go Betweens
- Circlesquare – The Wonder Stuff
- There Is A Light That Never Goes Out – The Smiths
- Chasing Rainbows – Shed Seven
- Can’t Get Out Of Bed – The Charlatans
What’s in your top ten? What do you think of my choices?
