or have i totally misunderstood?
No, that's my take as well. I never thought of this as a personal all time top 10, just a list of songs you dig today, a snapshot, not a last will and testament. That way hopefully there'd be a bit of freshness to it.
I liked TRSP's summary, pretty accurate really. Snarfy's right too, ultimately a lot of stuff is classic because it's unimpeachibly great, visionary, influential and everyone likes it. But we could end up choosing another BCB hall of fame and present the Tommy Tippee Cup (still laughing at that!) if we're not careful.
