If you have never read the blog Scrawls and Bawls then I would suggest you do so. It’s a great read and Finbarr, who writes it, is currently asking people to submit their top 5 songs of 2010. Not their top 5 albums, but their top 5 songs. It’s a really nice idea because, as he points out, whilst people’s top 5 albums are likely to throw up similar records time and again people’s top 5 songs can vary massively from person to person. Whilst you might pick the best 5 songs you can think of, there is more chance that you’ll pick something obscure, something that means a lot to you personally, reminds you of a moment in time, or even a tune that features on a crap record but that you love regardless.
So, do contribute to this. I have. And I’m keen to see what the results are at the end of the exercise. Whilst you’re there, have a look around his site. Good articles and interviews to be found. Enjoy.
