Personal list is endless and so varied. But this blew me away and changed everything, aged 14. Now it 'reduces' me to flooded cheek ecstacy, with arms a flailing for good measure . . .

Never been a fan of Dylan.

I don''t speak Welsh but Myfanwy always strikes a chord, as does the odd operatic aria.
