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!
