      • Not yet. I’m putting my list together at the moment! I will probably post my list pre-countdown though. Ha. I tend to steer away from the supremely popular ones so usually about half of mine make it in and the others don’t. But I don’t mind 🙂 xo.

  1. Hi, Thanks for this list, but even more so for this blog: I have already found some very good music I like thanks to your reviews!
