3. Cockney Rebel - Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me)This is nostalgia
4. Julie London - Cry Me a River This one I like as it's got so much soul
5. Jimmy Cliff - She Does It To Me Right He's just smashing!
6. The Beatles - I'm Only Sleeping The Beatles are my favourite group
7. Robert Wyatt - Strange Fruit This one I like as it's so far out of tune - it's fantastic!
8. Psychedelic Furs - Dumb Waiters Love the song. Love the video
9. The Four Tops - Bernadette Songs, songs, songs
10. Clive Langer and the Boxers - Have a Nice Night This is unappreciated music by an unappreciated guy. It's so great, and like a poem
