heard on the wire

Day 1 — your favourite song

I first came across the 30-day song challenge at Fades in Slowly, but it has since taken hold at Facebook and elsewhere. The idea is that you pick one song on each of 30 consecutive days, based on various criteria. It sounds like it might be fun, so here goes.

An easy one to start with, the finest moment from the finest band ever.

    There is no way I could pick my favourite song ever. This alone is one reason I can’t contemplate the 30 day song challenge.
