659-Laurie Anderson-O Superman.
1981-Number 2 single.
Best Bit-At 2.40 If you know of a more unusual sounding song to reach Number 2 in the chart i would like to know what it is.
The song became a surprise hit in the UK after it was championed by Radio 1 DJ John Peel.Laurie Anderson explained the songs meaning.’In 1979,Iranian students stormed the US embassy in Tehran.America went blazing in with helicopters to get hostages out,but it backfired.A helicopter and a plane crashed in the desert,we were left with dead bodies and a pile of burning debris,so i thought I’d write a song about all that and the failings of technology.’
‘Here come the planes they’re American planes made in America.’

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER
COMING NEXT THE BIG 660

Better stop dreaming of the quiet life
’cause it’s the one we’ll never know
and quit running for that runaway bus
’cause those rosy days are few
and stop apologizing for things you’ve never done
’cause time is short and life is cruel
but it’s up to us to change

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
661-Ian Hunter-Once Bitten Twice Shy.

Best Bit-At 2.58 Mick Ronson.
After leaving Mott The Hoople, Ian Hunter joined forces with Mick Ronson his most frequent collaborator,until Ronson’ death in 1993.The song was written by Hunter and produced by Hunter and Ronson.
In 1989 the American Rock band Great White brought the song to a whole new generation when they took their cover version to Number 6 on Billboard, but this the original is far superior.(I have heard it said that the first version of a song you hear will always be your preferred version.)
