    Ooft. This is much too hard but I'll have a think.

    Very difficult. Top 10 might have been easier for me.

    Handle With Care - Travelling Wilburys
    Both Sides Now - Joni Mitchell (although like the dance versions more)
    Dignity - Deacon Blue
    McFly - It's All About You
    You've Got A Friend - Brand New Heavies

    I should have made it top 10 mate but did think I'd give you all a challenge . Now it's backfired on me abit as I'm struggling too 😂 . Must check out a couple of your songs that I'm not familiar with though I'm sure I will enjoy listening to them 👍.

    Impossible to answer and all depends on what mood I'm in. I could write a list now and it would be outdated tomorrow.

    Walking in my Shoes - Depeche Mode
    Kaleigh - Marillion

    If it was top 5 albums I'd find it easier but this is impossible given my age!

    Up to the late 70s it would include

    Hey Jude - The Beatles
    Honky Tonk Women - Rolling Stones
    Marquee Moon - Television
    God Save The Queen - Sex Pistols
    (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais - The Clash

    But there would need to be something by Bowie and Squeeze in there too.

    Next list would probably start with I Am The Resurrection by the Stone Roses but just can't narrow it down to 5 yet.

    Tough but these are songs I'd be likely to most listen too.
    (1) Bohemian rhapsody = Queen.
    (2) The final countdown= Europe.
    (3) The Boxer = Simon & Garfunkel.
    (4) Spain train= Chris de burgh .
    (5) shakin all over = Johnny kid and the pirates.

    This is one of those impossible tasks as it always really depends on what kind of mood you're in, even a top 10 would be difficult. I was born in early 80's so my musical taste was influenced by the incredible music scene of the mid 90's, although I was trained in classical music for a bit in my early teens (I'll refrain from sticking any classical music on this list though!):

    Roachford - The Way I Feel
    Jeff Buckley - Last Goodbye
    Roy Orbison - Beautiful Dreamer (First song I have vivid memories of hearing, it was from my grandads old vinyl record collection. He died before I was born so this is my invisible connection to him)
    Morcheeba - Otherwise
    The Verve - Lucky Man

    Seems obscene not to choose a Blur/Oasis/Radiohead song as these three bands defined the era I loved so much IMO, I could swap Lucky Man out for around a dozen others from these three bands, but I didn't, so there we are .

    'Getting Better' for me. One band I always regret not seeing live, although from memory I think they had a bit of a stooshie with their record label by the time I was heading out to gigs in the late 90's, so they weren't really on the scene at that point.

    Love your clash selection - my fav from them too.

    The Rolling Stones - let it loose (this is the only certainty in my top 5 and itís number 1)

    Justin Townes Earle - time you waste

    Townes Van Zandt (his version isnít my favourite but itís his song) - Pancho and Lefty

    Jason Isbell - cover me up

    The Eagles - the last resort



    *edit - in fact, La cienega just smiled (Ryan Adams) has to be in there too, so struggling already, Eagles probably have to drop-out

    Interested in whose version of Pancho is your favourite. Emmylou? Steve Earle?

    It is one of those songs that nobody can do badly :)

    All the lists are fantastic.

    These are people's favourite tracks, for many reasons.

    Like both of those (incidentally seen both Steve and EmmyLou earlier this month). Steve Earle would be my favourite solo artist, and EmmyLou Harris not far off favourite female singer!

    Anyway, to answer your question - 100% Jason Isbell and Elizabeth Cook. Thoroughly recommend it if you havenít heard. They also done Townesí ĎTecumseh Valleyí

    The Undertones - Teenage Kicks
    The Proclaimers - Sunshine on Leith
    The Libertines - Time for Heroes
    The Courteeners - Here Come The Young Men
    Squeeze - Up The Junction

    This could change on a day to day basis though

    I could make a top 5 of Squeeze that would rival anything. Probably the most underrated band ever.
