Happy Tuesday, everyone!
No? Oh, OK then.
Here's the first in the series of Top 10s on Top 10 Tuesday and I'm starting wiiiiiith...
TOP 10 TUNES by iTunes Plays (not counting Christmas!) -- complete with Spotify link where possible!
10. Ecuador | Sash --not sure why this has such a high play rating -- was a power-walk tune on the iPod for a while; that may be why?) No link
9. Sitting Down Here | Lene Marlin -- just a very cute ditty about being ignored by the one you're after. Sigh... Lene Marlin – Sitting Down Here (Original Version)
8. Each Day Gets Better | John Legend -- I can't hear the Once Again album without wanting to write a screenplay, just to feature this song on the soundtrack. Laid back, loose and romantic. John Legend – Each Day Gets Better
7. Rise | Gabrielle -- from the Rise album. Often cited as having an introduction inspired by Bob Dylan | Knockin' on Heaven's Door. Rather gorgeous. One of my all-time favourites. Fact. Gabrielle – Rise
6. Sunshine | Gabrielle -- yep, from the same album, which I played almost on a loop in the winter of 2000. Gabrielle – Sunshine
5. Dearest | Buddy Holly -- from the Juno soundtrack. Very stripped-back and innocent. And the film is great: good 'n' quirky. Buddy Holly – Dearest
4. Back to Black | Amy Winehouse -- arguably controversial (:-)), but musically, sound as a pound. Amy Winehouse – Back To Black
3. Diary | Alicia Keys -- just love the softness of this one. Also love the imagery. This before she went a little more crazy-hardcore with the Jay-Z collaborations. Alicia Keys featuring Tony! Toni! Toné! and Jermaine Paul – Diary
2. Forever Autumn | Justin Hayward -- from the War of the Worlds (apparently). To me, this is an anthem of the late 60s, early 70s (yes, I expect I'm way off with the date!) and just evokes autumn. Played this continuously last season. Justin Hayward – Forever Autumn - Album Version featuring Justin Hayward from Jeff Wayne's Musical Version Of "The War Of The Worlds"
1. All I Want is You | Barry Louis Polisar -- another from the Juno soundtrack. Also from this Lotto advert which made me smile. Barry Louis Polisar – All I Want Is You
