The 1000 best songs in the world ever.
801-Madness-House Of Fun.
1982-Number 1 single
Best Bit-At 2.07. I have it on very good authority from someone who should be in the know that ‘Joe’ is in fact a name check for the fictional character Joe Sugden from the TV soap Emmerdale Farm,but he may have been fibbing to me.
This was the only Number 1 single for the group written by band members Lee Thompson and Mike Barson.The song is about coming of age.The lyrics tell the story of a boy on his 16th birthday attempting to buy condoms at a chemist,however the boy is misunderstood by the chemist as he uses slang euphemisms such as ‘box of balloons’ and ‘party hats with the coloured tips,’the chemist sends him to the house of fun which is a joke shop down the road.

The 1000 best songs in the world ever.
806-Amy Winehouse-Valerie.
2007-Number 2 single
Best Bit-At 011. That voice proves she is worthy of her place in the 27 Club.
The 27 club celebrates musicians who died at that age.It was thought that more Pop stars were dying at that age than any other,but research has repeatably disproved this.Between 1969-1971 Brian Jones,Jimi Hendrix,Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison all died at that age,but it wasn’t until about two and a half decades later with the death of Kurt Cobain that the idea of a 27 club began to catch on in public perception.In 2011 seventeen years after Cobain’s death Amy Winehouse died,she had three years earlier expressed her fear of dying at 27.
English Indie Rock band The Zutons wrote and recorded the original version of Valerie taking it to Number 9 in 2006.Mark Ronson wanted Amy Winehouse to record a song for his 2007 Album ‘Version’ and she suggested this song.

The 1000 best songs in the world ever
807-David Bowie-Drive-In-Saturday.
1973-Number 3 single.
Best Bit-At 1.32 Bowie was a genius and this is just one example of Pop Music’s greatest talent.
Drive-In-Saturday describes how the inhabitants of a post-apocalyptic world in the future(Bowie once said that the year was 2033)have forgotten how to make love and need to watch old porn films to see how it is done.The lyrics name-check Mick Jagger(when people stared in Jagger’s eyes and scored),the model Twiggy and Swiss Psychiatrist Carl Jung.
The song was written with the band Mott The Hoople in mind as a follow up to ‘All The Young Dudes’ but this time they declined the offer,a surprised Bowie decided to record it himself.
