Post-script:

This was such a difficult list to come up with! I recall last year's selection being much more straightforward -- but it's hard to complain when the reason is that there was just an overload of so much great music this year. Anyway feeling oddly nostalgic after tonight's show and here're a few more songs that meant a lot to me this year but which just wouldn't have fit into the programme. Thanks once again all for listening!
