This weekend we were away, doing all types of Halloween-y things, including dancing one too many times to The Time Warp and Monster Mash. It was fun though and, at first I was going to share one of these songs with you today. Then, yesterday, whilst carving pumpkins and talking ghosts I started singing Ghost Town by The Specials. And now it’s stuck in my head and I can’t get it out.

I also have an addiction to vinyl, which I still buy when I can because, well, there is nothing like it really – the feel, the sound, the experience of playing a record. Still, I digress. This is a long way of getting round to saying I thought it would be fun to start sharing some of my favourite songs, ones I can’t get out of my head or have recently (re)discovered. Hopefully, you’ll love them too…or not.
