Top Mixes 2008!

1 of the joys of my employment is that I have a stereo to myself all day, every day with no cloth eared tit telling me to `turn off the gay shit’. So I get to listen to top gay shit all day long, result!
As the year comes to an end I have found myself with a few minutes spare and an ipod `mixes’ folder with 51 separate mixes in it.  So here is a list of all the ones I went back to again and again this year. This is …
