In an effort to further her musical education, Susan Omand has been set "homework" of listening to albums released after the 1980s that she has missed out on. Year Three builds on what she learned in Year Two...
Yes, I know, I know. I'm late starting this year's education list but I have a good excuse... [no you don't - Ed] OK, no I don't but I'm here now and I'll do my best to catch up. Can someone lend me their class-notes? No? Oh well.
It seems like Mr Ames, my tutor for last year (find that here) was so happy with my progress that he's decided to continue to further my education again this year. Looking at my required listening list this year, there are a few band names that I now recognise from previous years [so you must have learned something! - Ed] as well as several completely new to me and the odd [very odd - Ed] curveball - YAY Jamie Cullum!
Follow along with this year's curriculum below and I'll share my workings with you as I go. Just no copying, ok?
