I like Billy Braggs 'A New England' But I have to say that my favourite is The Mighty Wah's 'Story of the Blues'

I was never into Billy Bragg (though a great songwriter), Story of the Blues - fantastic (took me ages to find a download of it though). But fav record of the 80s is a toss-up between :

Tears for Fears - MAD WORLD. (The new version made me cringe.)

and

Yazoo - NOBODYS DIARY



Nigel ?  Oh yeah, he's up there !

I like Mad World.....I think it's a good song

I like Satellite by The Hooters I think it's a brillant song

The song I like by Yazoo is Don't Go, it's a really nice song

Moonlight Shadow and Family Man were also top Oldfield tunes!

And as Fiction factory were the first band I saw live (support for OMD in 84 at Manchester Apollo) 'Feels like Heaven' also holds a special place.
