The first Tuesday Ten of 2018, and I’m starting quietly. Kinda. What is silence in musical terms? Silence is an absence of music, I guess. But wiki has a great description:
The election of Donald Trump on what was, basically, an anti-immigrant/minority ticket has already begun to have a major impact on the lives of visitors and residents of the US, while it is becoming ever clearer that the “Brexit” vote to leave the EU in the UK was also around little more than immigration concerns […]
Already, we’re onto the third month of this run-down of 1996, and the avalanche of great new music that appeared that year.
Two reunions of different kinds hit the news last week, although interestingly the return of Steps seemed to be rather overshadowed by The Stone Roses.

Ideas for future Tuesday Tens are coming thick and fast at the moment, and indeed I have the core of two more already completed too, and this week’s was a late change of plan, mainly after I realised just how many songs could be included. So the other two I have planned will be held […]
I’ve held this over from last week, which perhaps would have been a better time for it…but never mind. Songs about politics and all relating to it are an age-old idea, but still even after all these years one with legs. And after a quick scan of my collection suggested loads and loads for this, […]
