And here are all of those songs again, for you Spotify users.

I think, if I'm honest, my favourite song of the week has to be Beethoven's Fifth. It was a close call between that and Debaser by the Pixies, if only because I know how much that song and that band influenced Nirvana and therefore a TON of rock music ever since, but c'mon... "Dadada-DERRRR, dadada-DERRR"

You can't argue with riffs like that. It even made a coach trip seem like an epic odyssey into the unknown.

What's your favourite selection from this week?
