1- William it was really nothing
2- How soon is now
3- That joke isn't funny anymore
4- Bigmouth strikes again
5- Shoplifters of the world unite

Like ranking things but my phone won't let me type so I think they'd be my top 5.

I've ranked TCM last because I'm absolutely sick of it, not to be contrary . I like the other version though (London?)

There's a longer New York vocal of TCM, which I prefer to the original. It runs at 5:36
