Here are arguabaly the 10 best songs of all time as voted by me, Please bear in mind that this is my opinion and opinions like Lager vary widely. This list could well be likened to a pint of Millers, a workaday lager well suited to quenching a thirst on a budget but not too shabby on the alcohol content, your list might be likened to Kestrel or Skol or some other "cooking" strength lager or possibly even a "fighting" super strength lager like Tennents Extra Strong (13.5%).

1 - The Cure - Close to me.
2 - Transvision Vamp - I don't care
3 - Stanglers - Golden Brown
4 - Soft Cell - Tainted Love
5 - Nick Cave - God is in the house
6 - Morrissey - Disappointed
7 - Lou Reed - Set the twighlight reeling
8 - Kate Bush - Wuthering Heights
9 - The Handsome Family - Weightless again
10 - Jacques Brel - Le Moribund (Seasons in the sun)
11 - Depeche Mode - Condemnation
12 - Dory Previn - Mythical Kings and Iguanas

Levi Stubbs' Tears is an interesting choice. Billy started his show with that one last Saturday at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. It was almost downhill all the way from that, some would say.

Billy Bragg gigs usually go downhill when he starts gassing. It's like 'we know Bill, just play a song!'

Trouble with with fave song lists is how quick they change.
I've already replaced half of them. Mostly cos I've just listened to Southpaw Grammar so I wanna put Teachers Are Afraid..., Do Your Best & Don't Worry in plus maybe another one of mine!
