    But catch me in another mood and it may be different.
    I have read back and noticed I nominated five 18 months ago and only Dusty is on both lists , I am more fickle than I thought.

    All songs that go well with a pint. Pub songs.

    Hoots Mon - Lord Rockinghams 11
    This Boy - The Beatles
    A Fool Such as I/I Need Your Love Tonight - Elvis Presley (Double A)
    Theme for Young Lovers - The Shadows
    Twenty Flight Rock - Eddie Cochran

    Shame it's not a top ten! (these are in no particular order). I think favourite songs are made from memories.

    Looking back through this thread it's heartening to see there are many artistes nominated by others that might feature in my top 5 like The La's, Small Faces, Magazine, The Birthday Party, Echo & The Bunnymen and Hendrix. But my all time favourite single is Going Back by Dusty Springfield which also gets a couple of mentions. That still makes me stop in my tracks when I hear it. The other 4 might change but that will alway be number 1.

    Still stand by the above but 'The Fly' by U2 is probably joint 5th with 'She said she said'.

    Not my intention! I like all those songs, I like a pint and I like pubs. Music and alcohol go together.

    Very hard to create five favourite all time singles. There are many that mean so much. I would have to go with songs that made me stop in my tracks and changed the way I thought about music.

    I Feel Love - Donna Summer (the credit should be Giorgio Moroder feat. Donna Summer in my opinion)
    Ashes to Ashes - David Bowie (a tremendous return to form/comeback record)
    Wuthering Heights - Kate Bush (a song like there'd never been before)
    Ticket To Ride - the Beatles (the first song I learned all the words to. My cousin taught it to me on a long ride out in the back of his dad's van when I was six)
    Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen (like Wuthering Heights, a song you can't categorise. It was three songs in one. A 'mashup' as the kids would say today)


    It's a shame I couldn't include a song from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. This was an album I heard ten years after it was made. I was 17. I couldn't stop playing it and it mean so much to me. I can see why they attempted to turn it into a film because the imagery and pictures it conjures up are so vivid. So I can't include any singles from 'cos there are no singles, so I thought I'd give it as special mention instead.

    It wasn't until Sept 1978 that Parlophone finally released a single from Sgt Peppers....."Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band/With a Little Help from my Friends" on the A side, and "A Day in the Life" on the B side....
