  1. Thanks for posting this. I was enjoying listening on Thursday 20th December and heard a track with a long section that sounded like this:

    I got distracted and missed the name of the track. I don’t suppose that rings any bells, does it?

  2. Fanning Sessions Says:

    Could it have been this.. Barber’s Adagio for Strings?

  3. Fab 50 is a joke, it’s practically the same every year! Why doesn’t he do a list of that year’s best tracks.

  4. Fanning Sessions Says:

    I agree completely Georgie, that would be a rundown I for one could look forward to hearing.

  5. Here’s something you might like- In my photogrpahy website I give every blog post a related musical title. I’ve decided to attempt to post 50 photographs of mine, each one to relate somehow to each song of Fanning’s Fab 50. Here’s 50-40 http://www.photoblog.ie/2013/02/12/fannings-fab-50-part-1
