Welcome to another edition of TGIF. I trust that you all had a wonderful week, be it either at work or on holiday somewhere. For those into listening to music while working, I’ve decided to add a little Friday tune to the TGIF post as from today! You may all woop and clap with excitement, I know you’ll appreciate it. Of course if you have recommendations of your own, send ‘em through and I’ll include them as we go long. There will be a vast mixture of styles.
Without further ado…
