A-Z and Chronological Song List

It’s been another nearly 6 months since posting so I thought I’d get another one done. Back to Australia and Hullabaloo, BLX, the Little Big Weekend (oh how I have missed speakeasy) and more dancing, dancing dancing!

Plenty of DJ folks have been putting together A-Z song lists. So I decided to raise the bar and do a list that’s A-Z and in chronological order. I’m not entirely happy with it (one of the more difficult letters sits in one of the more difficult decades – I’m looking at you Q) so if anyone can better it, I’d be happy to hear about it:
