I love all these songs bar that Ray LaMontagne one – although the busker’s version was very good. I’ve included the Tears for Fears version of Mad World as I can’t bear that awful Gary whatshisface one. Originally Don’t Look Back In Anger was on here as well (for a long while all I heard on my lunch breaks was Oasis and I chose to include this one as it’s one of my faves) but stooooooopid Oasis aren’t available on spotify. Luckily the wonderful @LianneMarieB saved the playlist by tweeting about a fab busker version of Dancing in the Dark on deadline day and let’s face it, who doesn’t like a bit of Bruce?!?
So let’s celebrate the oft taken for granted Leeds busker – the city wouldn’t be the same without them!
