The 1000 best songs in the world ever.
718-Prefab Sprout-Cars And Girls.
1988-Number 44 single.
Best Bit-At 0.49 No question,Paddy McAloon is one of Pop music’s most underrated artists.
Prefab Sprout were formed in 1980 in Witton Gilbert,County Durham.Their name came from a misheard lyric from the Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazlewood song ‘Jackson.’The correct lyric is ‘We got married in a fever,hotter than a pepper sprout.’Paddy McAloon misinterpreted it as ‘hotter than a prefab sprout.’
The song is a dig at Bruce Springsteen’s perceived limited subject matter in his songs.Songwriter Paddy McAloon suggests that Springsteen’s worldview is too restricted and that ‘some things hurt more than cars and girls.

The 1000 best songs in the wold ever.
726-Cream-Badge.
1969-Number 18 single.
Best Bit-At 2.11 The creme de la creme of Cream.
The song was co-written by Eric Clapton and George Harrison,who also played rhythm guitar.The title has nothing to do with the song.Clapton saw Harrison’s notes and misread ‘Bridge’ for ‘Badge.’The lyrics are not intended to make any sense.Many of them were taken from drunken conversations Harrison had with Ringo Starr,although Starr is not down as one of the songs composers.
