Beyonce – Cuff it

A throw-back from May’s Stadium of Light show – Parliament meets Chic meets Kendric. Superb.

Arctic Monekys – Cornerstone

Probably my favourite Monkeys track- delivered stunningly at their Riverside show by a lothario frontman channelling his inner croon – excellent.

REM – Man on the Moon

Layers on top of layers on top of layers – so so so clever

The Monkees- The Porpoise Song

Riding the backs of giraffes for laughs is alright for a while

Rooney – Blueside

I can’t believe this record is twenty years old…

Pet Shop Boys – What have I done to deserve this?

Let’s take out the Beatles- obviously – but there’s a strong case to be made that these are the greatest British pop band
