(not on time but) It's the End Of The Year list

Photobucket

My blogging this year has been sporadic, but its not gone away totally and I wouldn't be a proppaah blogger if I didn't do one of these posts. God, I love a good list me.
And you know what, 2010 was pretty pretty good for me. Went to some festivals, Tony Hadley bought me a pint (gold) and I accidentally moved to north London.
I managed to make one of my new year resolutions from 2009 (finally going to Japan) but the great Burt Bacharach meeting is still elusive (hang on Burt, this year I'm coming for you).
Enough of that, let's have some lists...

** SPOTIFY PLAYLIST **

* There is a footnote to this list in that in fact my absolute favourite song of the year, by a country mile, isn't on this list. It's still under lock n key, biding it's time for place atop of many such lists this time next year.
Your Twenties, I'm looking at you and Long Forgotten Boy; my true bestest song of 2010.
