Next up in my personal top 5 favourite tracks of all time is a track which was released in 1998.
I’ve been a fan of electronic music from a young age and one of my favourite periods is late 90’s trance. This track is my favourite from that genre and period.
These days I don’t listen to trance as I much prefer progressive house and techno but I will always love late 90’s trance.

At number 4 here’s ‘Universal Nation’ by Push.

Scooby doo hey. I had no idea.
The outburst was gold.
Voiced Shaggy from 1969 to 1997 and from 2002 to 2009 in the various shows and movies in the franchise (not the live action films). Also, he starred alongside Vincent Price in the 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo series.

Best if you don’t delve into his death and Jean Kasem.

I am 70+ years old, I cannot remember all the great songs I have heard, let alone pick 5!

Continuing my Fleetwood Mac theme. This is a classic (1969 I think) featuring the divine Christine Perfect's vocal when she was with Chicken Shack. Years later she married John McVie. Later she saw the light and divorced him but stayed off and on with FM.

My third offering is an artist rather than a single and could have been any number of her songs.
Brandi Carlile has been a successful musician for a long time but has only just entered the mainstream after this song was nominated for song of the year at the Grammys last year. Unlike a lot of my favourite songs where it is often the only song from that artist on my playlist, I could listen to Brandi sing the phone book. Her voice doesn't sound manufactured or polished and has such a natural strength to it. She also taught herself Piano and Guitar. This is not my favourite version of the song but is one of the best at showcasing her voice.
Despite lyrics not being a major focus for me I do love the way she sings "I saw your eyes behind your hair, and you're looking tired, but you don't look scared."
The backing musicians are twins who have been with her for over a decade and they all live in the same area as Pearl Jams Mike McCready near Seattle where they grew up.

The Yardbirds started the careers of three of rock's best guitarists, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck all of whom ranked in the top five of Rolling Stone magazine's list of 100 greatest guitarists. You all know Clapton so let's go with Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck

Must put a plug in for the guy who was my favourite front man - Stevie Mariott. The Small Faces is the band and in a subsequent version was one Ronnie Wood who had a bit of a career with a fairly well know band who still tour.
