the British IBM Top Ten's of 2011

Written by Aidy.

Ever since the British IBM first came into existence (2 weeks ago) it's been a time honoured tradition that myself, Dave and Paul get together at some point in January to take stock of the previous years musical offerings. We then do what all men do best according to Nick Hornby's High Fidelity, which is to make 'top ten lists'. Here are our individual top ten songs of 2011! Dave even went to the effort of making a Spotify playlist, there's a few tracks missing from it though cos not everything in the world is on Spotify....yet!
