One of the things on my list of things I wanted to achieve was putting together a list of my 101 favourite songs. At first, this seemed like a lot of songs to collate together but after not very long I had way too many. Have you ever tried to put together a list of your favourite songs? It’s more difficult than you might expect. I was keen to choose only the 101 best and cutting down the tracks to 101 was a tough task. How do you compare tracks that are both great but for totally different reasons? Some tracks you used to listen to on loop. Some tracks you love listening too. Some tracks you love because of memories you have when listening to them. Anyway after hours of deliberation my top tracks are as follows:
