MAD Blog Awards Playlist

MAD Blog Awards 2011Guess who is in charge of the music for the MAD Blog Awards? Yes that's right me!!

I have the great honour of setting up the playlist for party but I need your help. I want you to tell me what you want to listen to at the MAD's.

It can be a new track or a golden oldie as long as I can find it on spotify then I can add it to the playlist. Don't forget it is a celebration so nothing too sombre please.

All you need to do is leave the name and artist in the comments below and I will add them to the playlist. You can suggest more than one track.
