Top Tens Part One -The Songs

The Winner - White Lies

We had five sensible entries for the best songs of the year and thank you to all who could be bothered. What it shows is we have no idea what’s going on in the real world, however for being obscure, geeky gits we win the prize hands down. Andy and Rich (Get well soon mate) if you do a best of best of CD from your list I’ll do the other chaps with edited lowlights from my list. You’ll need 4 copies and maybe one for Craig who did make a halfarsed attempt at an entry. I’ll send then all back out and we can slag each other off all over again for crap choices.
