My blogger friend Mitch has this interesting post up and from it I have learnt a little more about him. I decided to try my hand at this game and here goes. I found it interesting to do and I hope that some others will do too. Shackman?

I have chosen all English songs except for one duet which is in Hindi. I can come up with a list containing Hindi and Thamizh songs as well but will spare my readers the agony. My Indian friends do like and listen to English songs!

  1. Great stuff Rummuser. As for #30, it’s not that I didn’t think about it but Home is where I usually want to be and thus it reminds me more about me most of the time than My Way. I knew just under half of these and I have to say that your #10 gets me as well. Very nice job!
