Well my real favourite might be My Favourite Dress by the Wedding Present, but it depends on my mood at the time.

My favourite Wedding Prezzy is "Everyone thinks he looks daft...."

I like "Imagine". Here's a very scarey Imagine version. Versions similar to this one are sung in some US churches by the fundis. By making only slight changes to the words the whole meaning changes;

Imagine there's a Heaven
It's easy if you try
A Hell below us
Above us bright blue sky
Imagine all the peolple living life His way

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And one religion too

Imagine all possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all His word

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Two bands I never really liked were Style Council and UB40 :evil:

"... but you can have your dream" Ahh good choice. Lovely jangly guitars (as usual).

Me too, although The Jam were OK.

Worst song ever, not including novelty ones, is "Don't Know Much", by Linda Ronstadt & Aron Neville (sp?). My teenage boyfriend wanted it to be "our song", & the whole situation just made me want to puke! Can't listen to it even today (many years later).

Okay, maybe not that one. What about... Another Brick In The Wall?

edit:

or Roxanne (the Police: Been to their comeback-concert in Zürich. Boy, they were great! :o )

I like reading SFA's music lists. He's got Spiritulized - "Ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space" at the moment. I love that song.

As for Pink Floyd, when I was 12 I liked them. Dark side of the moon was the 2nd album I ever bought. The Final Cut was an excellent anti-Thatcher album, but after Roger Waters left they became a bunch of sad old men reliving their glory days.

"In 1985, Waters declared Pink Floyd "a spent force", but the remaining members, led by Gilmour, continued recording and touring under the name Pink Floyd." - Wikipedia

Dark Side was one of my first 'serious' album buys (I shall gloss over David Essex entirely :oops: ) My joint favourites were the title track and 'Woman screaming' - can't remember the actual name but you'll know which one I mean and that was quite prophetic though I didn't know that at the time... :lol:

My all-time favourite song varies a lot but two have sort of stayed with me in the last 15 years or so - Search for the Hero by M People and China in your hand by T'Pau (but I don't like Carol Decker much aside from that) - my fave sad song is I Dreamed a Dream which is kind of an anthem now in way I suppose - :roll: but then as a chronic and clinical depressive it's as good an excuse as any and this was way before Susan Boyle happened so ner-ner! :P
