Favourite albums: A strange and eclectic mix no doubt...

The Beautiful South: Blue Is The Colour - lyrics wise, perhaps the greatest album ever produced.

Billy Joel: Piano Man

Elvis Presley: From Elvis in Memphis - NOT what you think - an obscure Presley sound from his 1969 session, seriously, not what you expect from Elvis, his most artistic album. If you're NOT a fan, this is even better as it is not his typical studio output.

Harry H. Corbett: Only Authorised Employees To Break Bottles.... OF COURSE!!!!!!!

HILTS...

I grew respect when you said EVERY BEAUTIFUL SOUTH ALBUM.. (though "Gaze" was disappointing, yes??) But then you said every Beatles album, so I'm not so sure... ha ha ha

I am the only person alive who thinks The Beatles are the worst group ever, had they not been the first manufactured band they wouldn't have had a look in.

The Beautiful South reinvented a genre - they sang grown up songs with grown up themes. Best band ever.

phil as Hancock said in the blood donor, have you been on the meths again, ha ha ha ha ha re the beatles,

to be fair i did only say three albums of the beatles,though every one is immense,

cant decide which is the best beautiful south album

QUENCH OR BLUE IS THE COLOUR, respect to yourself re the beautiful south, gaze still has some stand out lyrics though

what is your favourite south song? have just listened to them all again from start to finish and stand out ones for me are

the slide, one god,tonight i fancy myself, let love speak up itself,i,m stone in love with you, hold on too what,your father and i,

but the best in my opinion is PRETTIEST EYES, what a love song.

paul heaton is a genius lyricist, but what else would you expect,with him coming from liverpool :wink

cant add any more than that, the mans not wrong there :D

HILTS..

"Gaze" is good, just not to the standard of some of the others I think. But "The Gates" and "Angels and Devils" on there are fantastic. I just find Heaton's later writing became a bit predictable - at the end of the day, when he became sober his songs suffered, but only slightly, even at their "worst" they were fantastic. "Superbi", their last album, was a return to form in my opinion - "Meanwhile" and "The Cat Loves The Mouse" and "Rose of My Cologne" standing out on that one for me (though if you listen to "Manchester" then "There is a song", you can sing "Manchester" to the backing of "There is a song" just a bit slower!!).

Favouritr ablum is probably "Blue is the Colour" as it's so depressing in places, I love it, though "Painting It Red" and "Quench" are very close behind!

My favourite song didn't appear on an album, it's "A Minute's Silence" which was a bonus on the "Rotterdam" single / EP.

"Youv'e got an extra five years to clean up after men... (her) I mean no disrespect God, but you better make it ten!". That's the line you mean.

I have lots of his solo stuff, also some unreleased tbs stuff you might not have, inbox me and I'll get you some copies..
