Featured Songs

Here is an alpha list of the songs that feature in my posts.

I intended to choose them randomly but pretty soon it became apparent they would choose themselves based on what was happening in the news, in my own life, or indeed the seasons. Sometimes a thread develops however and it’s fun to just run with it until it reaches a natural conclusion.
