I havn't forgotten the '10 songs'. I've been letting artists and songs float through my mind and daydreams ever since. 10? Too few!!! And my 'Tens' then look not great. I put radio 6 on and think I've nothing 'modern', up-beat, 'raunchy' etc in mine. So I'll write down here my process (ie listing all the good groups, songs, artists etc) -from which I'll then draw 10.
