A-Z of Famous Rob Part 2 - Music

A: A-ha - The sun always shines on tv (wonderfully dark pop with a great video)
B: Bo Diddley - Hey Bo Diddley (THE innovator, RIP)
C: The Cribs - Mirror Kissers (Singalong gig genius)
D:
E:

G:
H: Honour by VNV Nation
I:
J:
K:
L:
M: MIA - Paper Planes (the proper version, the best song from the best album of 2007)
N:
O: Open Your Heart - The Human League (one of those songs that just musical oozes emotion, and probably the best song of the early 80s not made by a band with Bernard Sumner)
P: Paint Nothing - Idlewild (The first song I ever heard by my favourite band ever)
Q:
R:
S: System F - Out of the Blue (still the most dreamy tune I think I've ever heard, responsible for a several year long love of trance)

U seem to flip between song starting with a letter and bands with a letter,

in any case D = Dr Dre; the Chronic

I do, only way to fit them all in!

I didn't really discover Dre til later on. Probably Blackstreet - No diggity
