So, to appease the forum gods, letís start a new generic thread.  Or maybe that wasnít the point.  Who gives a fuck.

Here we go then, a song that for reasons that are meaningful, or just because, defines you.  The one you go back to, maybe you have no idea why, or maybe it has meaning.

I shall begin.

1979 by Smashing Pumpkins

There is just something about the song that captures me.  For someone of my generation it is a song that covers the Breakfast Club and Say Anything, or Sat Elmo Fire if yountranslate it to films.  I like t(e Pumpkins but they are not my favourite band by a mile, yet this song and video combined are my go to when a little tipsy, makes me feel good.

Crack on, or make this the loneliest threa£ ever.  Whatever floats your boat.

What a waste by Ian Dury.

You hear about a shooting, and plan a different route in, and you end up hiding even though you're law abiding.

 I haven't got one song.  The best I can do is there's always been a tune which kind of captures the moment of the women in my life. It started a long time ago, and carries on til this day, but it's ace, whenever I hear one, I get whisked off.

 The first one was "I wanna hold your hand" by The Beatles.

It's not a song I particularly like but it transports me back to the day like no other.

Seasons in the Sun by Terry Jacks - I was just preparing for a tour of duty in Yemen

It's really a whole album that starts off my musical journey - The Who Live at Leeds
