    This guy's Chris Binns, the guitarist from Krokodil. He originally picked the rapper A$AP Rocky, then changed his mind, but couldn't remember which Kate Bush track he liked, so he just did a squiggle.

    We've used "Wuthering Heights" in the playlist below because we like it.

    11. Sabrina, "Boys Boys Boys".

    "Or was it Samantha Fox? The one with the enormous breasts." (It was Sabrina.)

    12. Boney M, "Rasputin".
