#1341 LATELY Stevie Wonder
Stevie Wonder included the beautiful ballad "Lately" on his 1980 album 'Hotter Than July'. He wrote and produced the song which, the following year, peaked at #3 in the UK.   

#1342 KENTUCKY RAIN James Reyne
Australian soloist James Reyne recorded an album of Elvis Presley covers in 2010 entitled 'TCB'. His version of the Eddie Rabbitt and Dick Heard hit song is a well-executed interpretation.

#1343 WHODUNIT Tavares
Disco hit "Whodunit" was written by Freddie Perren and Keni St Lewis for the group Tavares. The song reached #1 on the US R&B chart in 1977.

#1344 SOMEDAY Alcazar
Alcazar's 2nd album 'Alcazarized' featured the anthemic track "Someday". Co-written by Orup (Hans Thomas Eriksson), Stefan Olsson and Johan Kinde, the cut was issued as a single in 2003.

#1345 WET Barbra Streisand
The title track from Barbra Streisand's 1979 album 'Wet' was co- written by the singer with David Wolfert and Sue Sheridan.

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
