Some of my favourite tracks in this week’s show are: Words from Boyzone. I don’t know why but this track always takes me to the brink of tears. the lyrics aren’t particularly sad, I think it must be the music that gets to me.

Chicago and Hard Habit To Break – written by Steve Kipner and Jon Parker. Kipner also wrote the Olivia Newton-John hit, Physical.

REO Speedwagon Keep on Loving You and of course The Righteous Brothers –  Unchained Melody
