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.

Quoted from NeilT

Together with The King of Rock and roll the second track non-fans will always go for.  

Nice to read some reactions.

Yeah me too .. they've done a lot of quality stuff but when I think of PS I think of When Love Breaks Down....or maybe Cars & Girls.

Predictably, as a non-fan. it has to be the hot dog song. The King of Rock and Roll



Nigel ?  Oh yeah, he's up there !

Love King of Rock n Roll, but went for Carnival 2000. Reminds me of the Dream Academys 'Northern Town'. Very melancholy and dramatic at the same time.




I am all the things I regret
