It’s here, at long, long last: the final entry in the saga that is and soon to be was my 1980 and All That series.
It might not be fair to choose a favourite song of this year when we’ve still got a couple of months to go. But I’m fairly confident – barring something utterly spectacular involving the ressurections of John Lennon and George Harrison and a resulting Beatles reunion – that today’s choice will stand me in good stead.
It’s a tune from the latest Alt-J album, of which there are several (well, seven, to be precise) strong contenders. But I’ve gone for ‘Adeline’ for reasons that can be read right here.
