It's that time of year when the great and the good of the music industry vote for their favourite singles and albums of the year, and, for once, The Golden Virgins have not been overlooked! The very intelligent, charming and attractive Claire Sturgess at XFM Radio has nominated 'Light in Her Window' as her favourite single of the year in the XFM listeners' poll.
