TBT: 27 Songs I'll Never Get Sick Of

In my musical diet, there's a select list of all-time favourite songs that I always have in my back pocket. I never get sick of them. They're timeless. I can switch devices or streaming services, car stereos, etc. - but they always make their way in, with love. 

I glanced at my iTunes the other day, then over to my stacks of CDs, and rounded up 27 of these songs (since I'm 27?). Even if they've only been around for a handful of years, after hundreds and hundreds of plays, it's enough to know they're not going anywhere. Maybe you'll see or hear them differently, but these are the ones I couldn't get sick of if I tried.

Here's a Spotify playlist (of the available songs), if you'd like to listen there.

Sweet Thing - Van Morrison (my hands-down, all-time favourite song)
