Welcome to Part 2 of my Top 100 Favourite Songs list. They're divided into 5 groups of 20; the first 4 are in no particular order.
Part 1 can be seen HERE.
Part 3 HERE
Something I found when I was compiling my Top 100 was that songs I used to number among my all-time favourites, I no longer do. For instance, I used to adore 'The Way It Is' by Bruce Hornsby and The Range, but when I listened to it again, as I listen to them all before including them, it didn't do anything for me. I much prefer the sampled version: 'Changes' by 2Pac, and was about to add that instead when I realised that what I was enjoying most of all was the beauty of the late lamented Tupac Shakur in the video!
But I'll stick it on here as a bonus song anyway, so you can see it too 😉.
Back to it!
...and here is my second group of twenty, a random mix of musical types, as before!
I wavered between this and 'Brass In Pocket', but I decided that, although I played the latter about 20 times a day when it first came out, I've heard it so many times that I'm not sure I shall ever need to again. Thus, not a Top 100!
One of the first singles I ever bought :)
The Order of Death - Public Image Ltd (1984)
I'm not much of a Beatles fan - I appreciate how good their music is but most of it doesn't quite hit the spot for me. Except for this.
If I had a quid for every time I've drunkenly danced to this at 2 am... not for some years now, though!
I adored the soundtrack to the film The Beach, and used to play it over and over about 20 years ago.
I bought this when I was just 13, and remember playing it in the living room about 20 times on the day I got it. Still love it now.
(yes, Margot Bingham aka Max in The Walking Dead!)
As perfectly early 80s soft rock as Africa by Toto!
