#4 It must be love – Madness
It’s not often that a cover version is better than the original, but this is an exception. A great version of a Labi Siffre’s song that means a lot to me. Madness may have been the nuttiest band around but they were romantics at heart! Thanks Suggs.
“British band Madness had a major UK hit with this song in 1981, and with good reason: heartfelt and nutty in equal measure it still brings the house down at every Madness show. The video – filmed above and below water – is one of their classics, with cameo appearances by big bird, a killer whale and Mr Labi Siffre, who wrote the song.”
My blurb about #mytop30 …
I now have 15,906 songs in my iTunes collection. In my defence I am an ex-DJ, honest! So on a long train journey i started to add my favourites to a playlist. I was aiming to find my top 5, but ended up with my top 30.
Whats your top 5/10/20/30?
