  1. I thought this would be the only way to sort out the argument currently raging in another thread. Vote, people.

    The best band ever, in the history of the whole universe of music, especially on 1st and 3rd albums, but even on the 2nd even though I don't play it that much anymore.

    Didn't really listen to their music much at all. I hope most of it is better than Come on Eileen.

    Oh, people, people, people... (hangs head sadly) :smile:
    There is so much more..... :biggrin:
     
  6. Buy the album where they're all dressed as City types on the cover. Can't remember the title but it's probably the best album ever that was also a commercial flop.
     
  7. "What's She Like?" is one of the best songs in the world.

    Not that I'm a dexys obsessive or nuffink, but today is the anniversary of the death of Vincent Crane, pianist on "DSMD" album (see above)

    Were they better than Matt Monro or Val Doonican or Donald Peers?

    Val Doonican takes some beating (apparently)

    I suppose this thread will do as well as any other. I'm after finding out who did a song which had a line in it along the lines of:

    There's plenty of love and hate by the fireside

    or similar. It did occur to me that it might have been by Dexy's knobheads or poss the beautiful south or a third party. Anybody know?
