    Jonny I was really liking this page untill you named nearly my entire iPod on ‘Songs I Can’t Stand’!!! Elton John – Candle In The Wind, this song was only released for your Princess. And don’t go around bad mouthing Martine McCutcheon, she was my big break into the pop charts. Apart from that loving the 90s Playlist and can’t wait to listen to it on Spotify!!!! Keep up the good work
