This week, the stars of Queen’s Theatre’s Educating Rita Danielle Flett and Ruairi Conaghan pick their all-time favourite tunes
Crazy in Love - Beyonce ft Jay Z
Great in a club with your friends on the dance floor.
Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson
My parents introduced me to MJ at a very young age. Most of his music videos were like short films and I was obsessed with his dance moves.
Stronger Than Me - Amy Winehouse
She wrote most of her songs and her lyrics are so truthful.
Bet That You Look Good on the Dance Floor - Arctic Monkeys
Reminds me of being at college and when I first passed my driving test.
At Last - Etta James
I just love Etta’s voice and the lyrics are beautiful.
A Town Called Malice - The Jam
One of the great records of the eighties and a biting piece of urban poetry.
We Will - Gilbert O’Sullivan
A lovely song about parenting which manages to make the line “I bagsy being in goal” moving.
I Just Can’t Get Enough - Depeche Mode
A brilliant dance track from Basildon’s finest.
Don’t Make My Brown Eyes Blue - Crystal Gale
Another searing piece of love poetry from a most beguiling woman.
Got This Feeling - Justin Timberlake
Proof that pop records now can be as good as they ever were and one that myself and my 10-year-old son Se go crazy for.
