A good pub quiz question is 'What was Billy Braggs only number one hit?'

It is a bit of a sneaky answer but correct.

I always get told to keep it down singing another of his great songs out loud 'Greetings To The New Brunette' which features cameos from Johnny Marr and Kirsty MacColl - magic.

SHIRLEY....


Yes, that is an absolute classic! "How can you lie there and think of England when you don't even know who's in the team?!"
My very favourite Billy Bragg song would have to be this. So, so many great lines in a heartbreaking song.

I listened to that interview as well. Great stuff. Seen him live 3 times and he always puts on a good performance.

'Waiting for the great leap forwards' for me. The original had superb lyrics but he changes it live now to make it current and topical.

'The Boy Done Good' and 'Between the Wars' follow closely behind.

Saw Billy Bragg a few times, he always came up for the festival. People like Paul Weller would pop up as well, recreate their red wedge thing. A band who was on those tours with them who disappeared were Latin Quarter. They were even on Top of the Pops with Radio Africa. Really liked them.

I really liked Latin Quarter too.

The Redskins were another band who did The Red Wedge tours I believe, they were ace too.

Well, it's getting towards the end of the year so I thought I'd bore you all rigid with my favourite songs of the year and hopefully some of you will post some of yours too.
It's great hearing what other people are listening to.
I'm going to start with 2.
Low - Dancing & Blood. Great video even if you don't like the song.

Never really heard much of Low but Uncut have it down as their Album of the Year and they tend to know what they're talking about so I've put it on my Christmas list.

As a younger man with no kids I used to buy 2-3 Cds a week but those days are now long behind me. I tend to save up every recommendation I get and get as much music as I can for Christmas and then my birthday which is soon after. Consequently I don't really have a song of the year yet! Strangest Thing by War on Drugs was the best song from last year's batch.

I tend to listen to 6music all day when I'm working so it mainly comes from that really.
Same as you. I used to spend all my money on gigs and records and football. And beer.
Most of it now goes on football. Well, petrol and train tickets.

I like listening to Steve Lamaq in the evenings and Guy Garvey on a Sunday afternoon. When I'm off work Radcliffe and Maconie are good as well. A lot of the time on 6Music I'll hear something I really like and then forget what it was!

I tend to listen to more Absolute Radio at the moment , ironically because they very rarely play something I haven't heard before and if I'm feeling frazzled from work or my kids I quite like the familiarity.

A fine song from the 1980s when people still got excited about the FA Cup instead of slashed ticket prices and reduced attendances.
If only we could go back to a world with Tears For Fears and perms.

A classic. I saw them play Glastonbury at the time of Dummy. Unfortunately I had over indulged so only managed to stay awake for the opening 2 songs and fell asleep by the main speaker.
Those were the days.
This is my favourite
