  • Top 25 Tracks of 2013

    Hi Blog fans,

    As is now typical with me, my blogs are few and far between and now seem to take the mantle of lists. This by the title you may realise is no different. So in 2013 I tried to listen to as much new music as I could because I got to the end of last year and felt that my best of lists were fairly poor. This year I cannot have the same complaint, my research was vast and here are the results;
