    Any list I give is going to be pretty arbitrary, 'cos my favourties change all the time. But, for today, the first 20 of my favourites I thought of are:

    That Joke Isnt Funny Anymore The Smiths
    Thats Entertainment The Jam
    Taillights Fade Buffalo Tom
    Inbetween Days The Cure
    True Faith New Order
    Fools Gold The Stone Roses
    Live Forever Oasis
    Dont Dream Its Over Crowded House
    Suedehead Morrissey
    A Day In The Life The Beatles
    All Apologies Nirvana
    U-Mass Pixies
    Ghost Town The Specials
    Northern Sky Nick Drake
    Fanfare Eric Matthews
    Ring of Fire Johnny Cash
    Love Will Tear Us Apart Joy Division
    For The Dead Gene
    Waterloo Sunset The Kinks
    Get The Message - Electronic
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
