Last week, with a crisp €25 Golden Discs voucher to be won, I asked what song you would most like to see beamed into your living room via a virtual gig by a living artist.
You answered in your tens.
But there could only one winner.

Stevie Nicks. Anything by Stevie Nicks. I would just love to relive the time I saw her with Fleetwood Mac a number of years back (I am not disclosing anything). She was magical!
But what song to choose? I am going with Sorcerer, which first came out in the wonderful Streets of Fire, but I really like her version with Sheryl Crowe. If I win, can I get both of them in my prize?
