  • Agree with American Pie one of my all time favourites.
  • Peter and The Test Tube Babies - Up yer bum.
    B side - Cannot Conceive 
  • Most songs penned by Mr Weller, most notable for me, Above The Couds and Brand New Start
  • So many, will give it some more thought, but these off the top of my head:

    • Loads of great lyrics by Nick Cave, The Curse of Millhaven takes some beating.
    • The Lemonheads, The Outdoor Type for its humour or Baby's Home for the surprise twist.
    • Pulp, Common People. "I'll See What I Can Do" is perhaps the most sublime delivery of any five words anywhere in music.
    • Squeeze, Up The Junction, and many others.
    • Of Montreal, Bunny Ain't No Kind Of Rider
    • Abba, The Day Before You Came

  • Doctor, Doctor  by Thompson Twins

    I saw you there. Just standing there.
    And I thought I was only dreaming, yeah.
  • Roxette - Dr Feelgood

    I saw you out the other night
    I saw somebody hold you tight
    Roxette, I wonder who it could be
    It was so dark I couldn't see
    But I know it wasn't me
    When I tell you it ain't right
    I know you've got to agree

    I followed you into a show
    The band was playing rock'n'roll
    Roxette, I didn't need to seek you out
    The music played so loud
    That I could hear you through the crowd
    You was telling everyone
    About a new guy you'd found

    Roxette I gotta go away
    And leave you for a couple of days
    Roxette, I don't want no more of your tricks
    I'm gonna get some concrete mix
    And fill your back door up with bricks
    And you better be there waiting
    When I get my business fixed

    ''Home improvement expert
    Harold Hill of Harold Hill
    Of do-it-yourself dexterity

    So sanded off his winkle
    With his Black and Decker drill''
