…I’m sure that you don’t need reminding that it was Alfie Boe’s Best Live Song (as voted by you), Don’t Stop Me Now, on Gary Barlow’s New Year’s Eve Celebration:
What a great end / start to the year that was!
So, to round off the year, I’m looking back at my top ten thoughtsofjustafan moments (in no particular order) – hope you enjoy.
1 – Alfie’s best ever recorded song countdown – some great songs nominated (click here for the longlist) and while the result was never really in doubt, some of the top ten were very unexpected. This was my most commented on post of the year!
2 – Michael Boe’s interview and the release of the track list for his next album – great news, Michael told me that him and Sean will shortly be back in the studio! The release of the track list was the 3rd most viewed post!
3 – Serenata – my favourite track changes all the time. The first post about the new album was the 2nd most viewed post this year, sandwiched between the Alfie on the Royal Variety Show and Michael’s new album.
4 – Caruso live at Newcastle (thanks Linda for sharing):
5 – Symfunny stage door – so lucky to be able to chat to relaxed Alfie! But it was so cold…in June!
6 – Getting published on the Huffington Post UK! Such a thrill!
7 – Hearing Addio Sogni di Gloria at Classic FM live (thanks Marcia for sharing):
8 – Quadrophenia on tour – roll on Royal Albert Hall next July:
9 – Laura Wright’s interview.
10 – Two (!!!) interviews from James Morgan – such a lovely man.
Last, but not least, thank you for all the support that you have given me since day one of this blog. Thank you doesn’t seem adequate somehow but a huge big thank you hug for each and every one of you – some I’ve met, some I haven’t but your support is very much appreciated. In particular, thanks to:
