Your ten absolute favourite songs of all-time?

Obviously it might be difficult to narrow it down to ten, but try…

Ambiguity by David Thomas Broughton
Dirty Old Town by Ewan MacColl
Carry Me Ohio by Mark Kozelek
Gimme Danger by The Stooges
Hurt In Your Heart by John Martyn
I Remember by Devendra Banhart
This Must Be The Place by Talking Heads
I Couldn’t Say It To Your Face by Arthur Russell
Still Ill by The Smiths
Something On Your Mind by Karen Dalton

I can narrow it down to one, it’s Common People by Pulp.

Here are another nine I really like though

Kanye West - Monster
Kirsty MacColl - They Don’t Know
The Divine Comedy - A Lady of a Certain Age
Belle & Sebastian - I Didn’t See It Coming (Richard X remix)
Scott Walker - Jackie
Martha - Goldman’s Detective Agency
Kendrick Lamar - King Kunta
The mice from Babe - If I Had Words
and if that wasn’t bad enough I’d also probably have Three Lions
