The thing is, once you start, it's very difficult to stop. It's amazing how many thousands of songs get stuck in your memory over the years!

I found out the meme originally called for '100 favourite songs' - I think I may have to do this again sometime, and make some definite choices!

I was thinking of just doing Depeche Mode b-sides. That'll keep me occupied enough!
