  1. Pachabel's Canon
  2. Rod Stewart's Sailing
  3. Jeff Buckley's version of Hallelujah
  4. Dire Straits' Brothers in Arms
  5. Widor's Tocata & Fugue
  6. California Dreaming by The Mamas & the Papas
  7. In the Hall of the Mountain King by ELO
  8. Gloria  - no idea who by! We used to sing it at school for the Christmas concert and it used to send shivers up my spine - the last note hung for ages - awesome. I can still sing the alto line entirely from memory (20+ years later) - we had to; it was in the dark

Crikey, that's a harder list to whittle down to than you'd think...

  2. Beatles - Norwegian Wood
  3. Fleetwood Mac - go your own way
  4. K's Choice - This place is mine
  5. Elton John/George Michael - dont let the sun go down on me
  6. Florence and the Machine - Shake it out
  7. Rolling Stones - Paint it black
  8. Counting Crows - Colourblind

Book would be: Jane Eyre
