What what be your pick?



    • Roy Orbison - I Drove All Night
    • Kinks - Waterloo Sunset
    • Bix Beiderbecke - Barnacle Bill The Sailor
    • Acker Bilk - Stranger on the Shore
    • Vaughan Williams - Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis
    • Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing
    • Beethoven's 5th
    • Smetana - Vlatava
    1. Pachabel's Canon
    2. Rod Stewart's Sailing
    3. Jeff Buckley's version of Hallelujah
    4. Dire Straits' Brothers in Arms
    5. Widor's Tocata & Fugue
    6. California Dreaming by The Mamas & the Papas
    7. In the Hall of the Mountain King by ELO
    8. Gloria  - no idea who by! We used to sing it at school for the Christmas concert and it used to send shivers up my spine - the last note hung for ages - awesome. I can still sing the alto line entirely from memory (20+ years later) - we had to; it was in the dark

    Crikey, that's a harder list to whittle down to than you'd think...
