My top ten – here we go….
#10 Here comes the sun – The Beatles
My favourite Beatles song, a family favourite of ours. I guess I’m a George Harrison fan as my favourite Beatles songs are all his. He wrote this positive song at a tough time in his life and as The Beatles became more and more fractured.
Astronomer and science populariser Carl Sagan had wanted the song to be included on the Voyager Golden Record, copies of which were attached to both spacecraft of the Voyager program to provide any entity that recovered them a representative sample of human civilization. Although the Beatles favoured the idea, EMI refused to release the rights and when the probes were launched in 1977 the song was not included.
My blurb about #mytop30 …
I now have 15,906 songs in my iTunes collection. In my defence I am an ex-DJ, honest! So on a long train journey i started to add my favourites to a playlist. I was aiming to find my top 5, but ended up with my top 30.
