    I’ll give you 2 and 3, but that’s another three artists I’ve not really listened to. My tastes are probably a bit heavier than yours, although some of my likes are pure pop. Have you heard any of these – Ultramarine by Young Galaxy, Outlaw Gentlemen And Shady Ladies by Volbeat, Heartthrob by Tegan and Sara.

    Young Galaxy I’ve heard of. ‘Closer’ by Tegan and Sara was on my Tracks of the Year long list, but isn’t going to make the top 20.

    Volbeat, on the other hand, I’ve never heard of, although on investigation I see that they are a Danish metal group, which probably explains it.
