You may have noticed if you came here (and you have not) that I stopped updating the site with links to my sports work because even I found that boring. So now, looking to come out of a stupor and actually do some writing, I’m continuing my count-up (yes, I’ve decided it’s a thing) of the best songs ever written and performed on planet Earth. Just like last time, this list is definitive.
Also like last time, these videos will be my favorite versions of these songs, so they might not be sung by the original artist/artists. Click here to see songs 1-10.
