I stumbled across this back in November and it's  been stuck in my head ever since. And so to answer the two questions that nobody is asking.

There was also the small fact of it being New Years Day and the previous nights festivities did more than enough to keep me from blogging. Which reminds me, Happy … Continue reading Top 10 Tracks of the Year – Bullet In A Gun

Kodaline

And so we reach the penultimate position of this chart. My selection should not come as a surprise to anyone even remotely familiar with the Irish Music Scene. The Dublin Alternative band, Kodaline, turned heads with their impressive single 'All I want'.
