Long-term readers may remember, that when I used to blog on Bebo, I would post up the five songs i’d been loving the most over the past week.

Since moving to WordPress, i’ve never done that, apart from a Top 50 of the year so far, and a Top 100 in December, as well as periodic “The Sound Of …..” blogposts.

So, i’ve decided to start doing a Top 5 blog each week again, the Friday five. Enjoy.

1. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Bird – AKA What A Life
2. Scala and Kolacny Brothers – With Or Without You
3. Hayley Westenra – World In Union
4. Snow Patrol – Called Out In The Dark
5. Kelly Clarkson – Mr Know It All


Seeing as this week marked what would have been Freddie Mercury’s 65th birthday, I thought I would take my role as a self-confessed Queenologist to give you five Queen songs you need to listen to.

1. Innuendo
2. Seven Seas Of Rhye
3. Let Me Live
4. Save Me
5. Play The Game
