 100 FAVOURITE SONGS 

My own rules for this was that no band could have more than one track listed, but that people who went and formed other bands could have an entry for each one. (Thus Keith Emerson gets two tracks, one with Nice, the other with ELP.) Other than that, they are just tunes I like, across a variety of genres, singles and albums. The order is fairly arbitrary – how do you place a good dance tune against a hard rock epic? The numbers are there to limit me to 100 rather than rank them, although I’ll admit Suppers Ready is my ultimate ‘Desert Island Disc’ choice. I have deliberately missed out my classical favourites since most are known by composers, not orchestras, but I have included a few top folk tunes that may be less familiar. Inevitably, they reflect my status as a burnt out hippie, ex disco, rock and radio dj, member of several bands, and as an old git!
