Top 10 Lists 2018 #23

Jim Carroll is hilarious on U2 in his occasional Rattler series on RTE's Barnstorm, in a great line from it about why music matters: "There is absolutely nothing here which resembles a song which will change your life, turn the world upside down, put goose pimples on your arm, make you play it again or want you to play it for someone else."

Hope ye enjoy the rest of the break and find some things in the lists to add to your entertainment debt for 2019!
