#1441 CAN'T HOLD US Macklemare & Ryan Lewis
The dup Macklemore and Ryan Lewis broke through with their album 'The Heist' in 2012. "Can't Hold Us", written by the duo with Ben Haggerty and Ray Dalton, became their 3rd #1 song.

#1442 TINY DANCER Elton John
The much-loved "Tiny Dancer" was first heard on Elton John's 'Madman Across The Water' LP in 1971. The John/ Taupin composition found new fans via the film 'Almost Famous' in 2000.

#1443 YOU GOT IT Roy Orbison
Released shortly after Roy Orbison's death, 1989 album 'Mystery Girl' featured "You Got It"- his comeback hit written with Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty.   

#1444 A SLOW SONG Joe Jackson
Self-penned track "A Slow Song", featured on Joe Jackson's hit album 'Night and Day' in 1982, finds him desiring some soft music for some quality time with his partner after a hard day.

#1445 LEAN ON ME Bill Withers
In 1972, Bill Withers reached the top in the US with his own gospel-flavoured R&B composition "Lean On Me".

The list is a ranking made up of the songs I enjoy the most, ranked in order of preference: the higher we go, the more I cherish them. Some were released as singles, others as album tracks. Some are obscure; others were worldwide hits or have universal appeal. They aren't always the most famous or popular, but simply a personal choice.This expanded section now includes songs from the last few years. I hope you find some new tracks to love, or re-discover some past favourites.
5 new songs are added every day from #1201-1500
