This week, Hornchurch author Emeka Egbuonu picks his top 10 all-time favourite tunes.

Michael Jackson.Michael Jackson.

Will You Be There - Michael Jackson

This is a very powerful song and it triggers memories of my childhood. It also reminds me about keeping in touch with those that are close to me.

Changes - Tupac

This is a timeless song. Tupac manages to bring up some important issues that concern black people – the message is still relevant today more than 20 years since its release. It gives me a chance to reflect about the situation in deprived communities.

Whitney Houston.Whitney Houston.

Change Gonna Come - Sam Cooke

A song of hope. I love Sam Cooke, fighting for change in so many different aspects of life. Again this song gives me hope that change is possible as long as the right people keep fighting for it.

Your Love is My Love - Whitney Houston

She is by far my favourite singer of all time. I love this song – this song for me is all about reflection. Thinking about the world, about the people in my life and in a way it motivates me and makes me think about the fact we need more love in the world.

Friends - Nas and Damian Marley

This a song that makes me explore what the true meaning of friendship is.

No one Like You - P Square

This song by the dynamic Nigerian twins has me thinking about my future wife.

At Last - Etta James

Powerful and classic.

Baby Love - Supremes

Great sing along, all round feelgood song even though the lyrics are quite sad.

Ps and Qs - Kano

As a true East End boy, grime was part of my upbringing. This brings those memories to the forefront.

Father Father - Oliver de Coque

My favourite highlife musician. My dad used to play this all the time, now I have inherited the same buzz that he used to get from him.
