I have 3 favourite I’ll songs, and they’re actually all I’ll Be songs:
I’ll Be There For You by The Rembrandts - I always think if you could only play one song to represent what the 90s sounded like it would be this one
I’ll Be Missing You by Puff Daddy featuring Faith Evans and 112 - not universally popular I know but a classic pop / hip hop crossover hit in my humble opinion
But head and shoulders above the rest, the wonderful I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight by Bob Dylan, which I first knew as a kid in cover form by Robert Palmer with UB40. Dylan is an incredibly versatile songwriter, here he’s in full on love song mode and couldn’t be more charming:
This is amazing though, isn't it? A thrilling, fun, proudly Northern celebration of being young and loving every minute of it. I have been a little bit in love with Lauren Laverne ever since the first time I heard it
I remember the anguished reaction on the old Channel 4 teletext music pages when Kenickie announced they were breaking up. Far bigger news than Take T**t.
Towards the end of 1981, the need for a dance troupe on Top Of The Pops was fading - there were more videos around to portray songs so less need for the BBC to provide the visuals. Plus a new production team was trying to turn the show into a nightclub party atmos with a regular crowd of funseekers.
And so Legs & Co were given their cards, replaced by the J-pop-like ensemble Zoo.
But Sue Menhenick had been a dancer for nearly a decade, through Pan's People and Ruby Flipper, and, after Legs & Co had finally danced their last, she was given the chance to say farewell with a solo performance.
Once you know the story it is a surprisingly moving piece. And the perfect song to which to do it.
My celebrity crushes : Monika Sedziuviene, Kristina Ivanova (YVA).
In my head I like to imagine LastDreamer in the land of Lithuania right now with a suitcase of simcards, a box of chocolates and a wedding ring. It would be a great base for an epic Eurovision fan fiction.

This would have been a good opportunity to pick some 21st century songs that I like a lot:- Let England Shake - PJ Harvey Let It Go - James Bay Let Me Down Easy - Paolo Nutini Let Robeson Sing - Manic Street Preachers
I could have picked an early ska hit:- Let Your Yeah Be Yeah - Pioneers

Let Down - Radiohead Let 'Em In - Paul Mccartney & Wings Let Me Roll It - Paul McCartney & Wings Let There Be Love - Simple Minds Let It Be - Beatles Let It Die - Foo Fighters Let It Grow - Eric Clapton Let Me Live - Queen
