And the same formula for the essential PREFAB SPROUT competition. Do you remember this band who managed to write pure pop gems?
The first album Swoon remains their most difficult one for me until today. But Steve McQueen and Jordan the Comeback are alltime favourites of mine. From Langely Park to Memphis was somewhere inbetween.
My full list of 18 tracks would be as follows.
essential PREFAB SPROUT Faron Young / When Love breaks down / Bonnie / Appetite / Goodbye Lucille / Cars and Girls / King of Rock and roll / Hey Manhattan / I remember that / Looking for Atlantis / Wild Horses / We let the Stars go / Carnival 2000 / One of the Broken / The Sound of Crying / All the World loves Lovers / Life of Surprises / Cruel
Goodbye Lucille is also knows as Johnny Johnny. One of the Broken is one of the best songs ever written about God. But Wild Horses is my absolute favourite one: this is how I fell in love with my wife.
