One of my favourite journalist bloggers Sally Whittle has tagged Jed, Louise and I. She has challenged us to share our top 25 tracks for a Friday afternoon. Now I have to say I found this really difficult as there is so much good music out there and I have quite an eclectic taste – so to get it all into 25 tracks is quite a challenge. Unfortunately, S-Club and the Fast Food Rockers didn’t make it in this time – sorry Sally.

I have added most of these to my a playlist on Spotify, so if you have Spotify on your computer you can download my list here. I had a lot more dance records in here originally but unfortunately my taste was a bit too niche for Spotify, so I have kept the dance a little more commercial.

  1. Michael Jackson – Billie Jean
  2. Dr Dre – Let me Ride
  3. Backstreet – No Digiidy
  4. Sweet Dreams – The Eurhythmics
  5. Daft Punk – Around the world
  6. Stevie Wonder – Very Superstitious
  7. Elvis Presley – Suspicious Minds
  8. Beats International – Dub Be Good to Me
  9. The source ft Candy Staton – You got the love
  10. Kool and the Gang – Get down on it
  11. Jurassic Five – Finish First
  12. The Killers – Mr Brightside
  13. Snow Patrol – Run
  14. Pulse – The Lover that You Are
  15. King of Leon – Use Somebody
  16. Alcatraz – Give me Love
  17. De’Lacy – Hideaway
  18. Green Day – Jesus of Suburbia
  19. Ben E King – Stand By Me
  20. Oasis – She’s Electric
  21. Bob Marley – Redemption Song
  22. Shola Ama – You might need somebody
  23. The Beatles – Eleanor Wrigby
  24. Thomas Bangalter – Together
  25. The Verve – The Drugs Don’t Work

In the interests of fun, I tag Simon Collister, Sebastian Mysko and Stephen Davies to take up the challenge. Good luck!
