Every 5 Years I spend the Christmas break listening to the best songs ever and using a points system to work out my All-Time Top 100. Every time gets closer and closer. The Gap between 1 and 100 is tiny (and gap between 101 and 200 even smaller). So I’ve enjoyed doing this again. Arcadia’s “The Promise” spent the past 25 Years at number 1 but there have been major contenders released since the last update and a few songs that I have grown to love and appreciate more now that I did when they were first released.
