A Few Tunes That Are Stuck In My Head: September

10. ‘Watch Roger Do His Thang’ – Main Source Early 90s hip-hop track that shockingly advocates education over drug dealing! I really like the beat on this.     9. ‘Your Mother Should Know’ – The Beatles It’s probably ranking as one of my favourite Beatles’ numbers right now.
