Talking Scarlet  performed by Prefab Sprout  1985
Composed by Paddy Mcaloon

A song as pretty and witty as any of their better-known numbers, this also has a little more propulsion than many of those. I'm also very fond of the album it's on, 1985's "Protest Songs", which was unreleased until 1989 and wasn't one of the band's biggest sellers when the record company eventually released it after "From Langley Park to Memphis".

from Protest Songs, available on CD


My love, my life  performed by Abba  1976
Composed by Ansersson, Ulvaeus

Such a ludicrously sentimental depiction of one party's feelings after a relationship breakup that I can imagine few would admit to liking it. However, it's a beautifully-crafted and wonderfully performed song with a superbly effective arrangement. I admit to liking it despite its total sentimentality and lack of any kind of coolness.

from Arrival, available on CD


Please  performed by Pendragon  1986
Composed by Barrett/Pendragon

Pendragon are one of several bands that emerged during the early 80's very much under the influence of Gabriel-era Genesis.

This instrumental track contains excellent, original chord sequences and guitar solos. If you can manage to suppress your amusement at the band's name (and/or musical style), you might be surprised how much this impresses you. It's a studio track on a live album.

from 9:15 Live, available on CD (Toff)


Whoever you are  performed by Prefab Sprout  1997
Composed by Paddy McAloon

A gentle, easy-listening inspired song which is pretty much perfect so long as you can manage to avoid finding it overbearingly kitsch. The naively optimistic, yet sophisticated lyric is beautifully matched by the music and arrangement.

from Andromeda Heights, available on CD


She’s Dead  performed by Pulp  1992
Composed by Pulp

A particularly gloomily atmospheric track which pre-dates the band's chart success by only a year or so. I find the chorus to be the band's catchiest of all, but nevertheless haven't entirely worked out why I find the song as a whole to be so absorbing.

from Separations, available on CD
