Van Morrison: Moondance
John Berry's fave five farewell playlist will strike a chord (pun intended) with many of the baby boomer generation.
Who hasn't got Moondance or Here Comes The Sun in their collection? Or still gets damp eyed when hearing Aretha Franklin singing I Say A Little Prayer?
Moondance: Van Morrison
Moondance is a gorgeous, swinging Celtic soul/ jazz groove, and it always makes me feel good.
Here Comes The Sun: The Beatles
My favourite tune from the greatest band ever.
New Amsterdam: Elvis Costello
Quite simply this is Costello's best melody, and he's written some good ones.
Warwick Avenue: Duffy
So authentic a slice of retro-soul, it could have been sung by Dionne Warwick.
I Say a Little Prayer For You: Aretha Franklin
I’m an atheist but worth hedging my bets with this classic from the Queen of soul!
