SWC has come up with the quite magnificent idea of a rundown of the best 100 songs with one-word titles. Where many of us would have gone about this in a dictatorial manner, he recruited a group of peers and got folk to vote on things. I was one of them, and I know that some of the TVV cognoscenti also offered up opinions.
Part One of the prelude is here.
Further later musings are here, here, and here.
I should also mention that while it isn’t immediately obvious, it is possible to leave comments at No Badger Required. You do have to click on the title of a particular post, and it will open in a separate tab with a comments box at the foot of the new page.

Yes, yes, yes! Great timing in that I was organised enough this morning to add Thank Your Lucky Stars to my morning commute playlist, commencing shortly. Unfortunately my destination today is only 45 minutes away so I may need to take a detour…
As one of the “twelve angry men” that had the privilege of being asked to participate in SWC’s vote, I’m looking forward to seeing how the countdown plays out. That said – and no spoiler – I’m absolutely seething that Wot by Captain Sensible wasn’t on the list.
I returned my voting slip too and am now sitting waiting and seething…

Yeah, it took me ages to work that out.
