Friday is Preparing its Lists
Okay, we are getting into list season here, and it is time not just for me to be preparing my own lists, but for you to be considering yours as well. Last year we had a vote on the fives which I failed to count properly, but this time I promise to keep a running tally as we go along, so we will hopefully end up with an actual Song, by Toad Readers’ Champion.. or something like that anyway.
So, between now and next week (10th) give some thought to your five favourite songs of the year, and for the following week (Friday 17th) your five favourite albums of the year and we can add them all up and find out who we all love the mostest.
I will as per usual be doing a Top Twenty albums and a Festive Fifty, but not until a little closer to Christmas, but this will help me start thinking properly about it as well. I’ve shortlisted about twenty-five albums, so I’m nearly there, but I haven’t even started my Festive Fifty, so that should make for a bit of a marathon one of these evenings.
So, one last random five before the end of the year. And random it shall be.
1. Favourite dessert.
2. Favourite trainwreck celebrity.
3. Best sort of apple.
4. Favourite movie spaceship.
5. Cutest non-bunny, non-kitten, non-Durex puppy kind of animal.
This week’s five songs are from a Punk compilation I bought about eight years ago.
The Adverts – Gary Gilmore’s Eyes
The Rezillos – Top of the Pops
Wreckless Eric – Whole Wide World
Blondie – Rip Her to Shreds
