Robbie Williams "Angels" was the best song of the previous 25 years, according to the 2005 Brit Awards. As usual, the tunes we've included for you pre-date 1980 and so didn't make the cut to compete with Robbie. Shame, because if any of them had he would have lost out, not least of all to Hadda Brooks, who asks a very pertinent question towards the end of this selection.
Mixcloud continues to provide great listening pleasure with a little searching. We've recently dropped on to Jazzman Records and offer you all a sample of the great sets they upload regularly. Jean Knight, pictured, features in the first.
