Welcome to the final part of My 100 Favourite Songs - it was so difficult to decide on my Top 20. Some I thought were in it turned out not to be when I listened to them again, and vice versa. I've also managed to narrow down my Top 10 - I would have liked to do a proper top twenty countdown but the order would have changed from week to week.
I hope you have enjoyed listening to some of my favourites, and perhaps they've brought back some memories of your own, too.

This was the best I could find - stacks of cover versions on YouTube; this was the only actual one with Hendrix singing!
I remember having this album on a lot when my then-boyfriend bought it, and I kept thinking, oh, there's that really good one again, before I worked out which one it was. You know how certain tracks kind of steal into your brain almost before you know you love them.
⭐ The Top Ten ⭐
In no particular order....
Was my number one favourite song for ages - still love the musical outro soo-oo much.
I discovered this beautiful song when it was featured on The Walking Dead; I like this acoustic version of it best. I never tire of listening to it. Walking Dead below!
How do you pick your favourite song from your favourite band? It's a toss up between this and Hangman Jury. This was from a set they did on the MTV Unplugged series in about 1989. Hangman Jury featured too, but I couldn't find a decent video of it.
Just a shot away...
Just brilliant. The instrumental bits are sublime.
If I had to choose one favourite song ever, it would probably be this one. Loved it since I bought the album in the late 70s. I'd like to live in it. That violin.
