I’ve been thinking about things to populate this blog with other than bicycle fiddling, and I’ve had a couple of ideas (one will appear in a couple of days), one of which is around music. I think my sister did this a while ago to compile a playlist for her 30th birthday party, so here’s my very own birthday playlist.
The rules are simple:
- it was in the UK top 40 on my birthday that year.
- I can’t choose the same artist more than once
- It has to be a song I know without looking it up (otherwise I’d have to go through over 1,000 records…)
- There has to be a YouTube video available (otherwise you won’t have a chance to hear the songs)
