If one of you fuckers doesn't pick one of my favourite songs ever soon, I'm going to have to do a Bobinhood and make 9 consecutive picks to catch up  :D

Hey, I picked Sonic Youth - Admittedly, the only song of theirs I can actually get into and one that hipsters don't like but still...

Touch Me is a great pick deFacto, was very close to making my own tape. You might have a vote sewn up already. First song anyone else has picked that I toyed with picking myself  ;D

So i was determined to be a little more, you know, current and find a song from the current decade, something a bit more electronic or avant-garde than my usual go-to's.  So I researched hell out of it, looked for 2010+ cutting edge, popular, big hits, what are the kids watching, this kind of thing and the google machine gave me this...

Uptown Funk two unique versions.

Needed something for the 2010 to Present genre --- love the tune but lets be honest, I sold out.

But check out the fucking hoofers in the video.... now that is serious Kansas City Flim Flammin'

Practice got called off, and I got no place to go except have one pick left....  Interesting times.

Really looking forward to listening to everyone's mix, there's a few songs I'm not familiar with.  Also makes me wish I'd gone more obscure on my picks instead of using songs everyone knows.

I kind of did the same in that most of them aren't my absolute favourites but they're all songs I love so it's all good.

Yeah there's so many to choose from it doesn't even really matter.  But if we go ahead with the female singer draft I'll be going full hipster.

I've went with selections [not all of them] that I  certainly don't listen to on a regular basis and that I know some will know of, but there are some that  just that have a meaning to me so it's a mix of everything.

I tried to include more than one particular genre

Same, D. Tried to satisfy my own tastes which are varied but mainstream on the whole with a couple of little belters I hope the crowd might like. Just putting them into order now and found a gap so sorting a bit of acid jazz out as we speak to fill it
