Thoughts on songs.

At bootpunk's suggestion, a few thoughts on seven of my favourite songs.

1. Magazine - A Song From Under The Floorboards.

2. The Only Ones - Another Girl, Another Planet

3. The Ruts - Babylon's Burning

4. Elvis Costello and the Attractions - I Want You.

5. Ballboy - Olympic Cyclist

6. New Model Army - Marrakesh

7. Big Black - Kerosene

And, errr, should they wish to participate, may I be so bold as to nominate gingiber, sabledemon, kiaransalyn, scylla and darkstones? Although if you don't mind me not being limited to five, I'd actually be interested in what nearly all of you think.
