Dedicated to those chats you only ever seem to have down the pub and/or when drunk. And an excuse to post a picture of Gram Parsons.
Last week's was "what would you rate as the best tearjerker song, y'know the one that they put in a film and you have to pretend something flew in your eye?" Here's the results for your deliberation/derisory comments/agreement (note...there were 2 scots and 4 brummies, so this was our natural territory).
Sadly neither "Since you've been gone" by Rainbow or "If you leave me now" by Chicago made the list due to rules surrounding "no ballads by pissy 80s hair rock bands".
"Song for you" - Gram Parsons
"Pissing" - Low
"Tracks of my tears" - Smokey Robinson
"Hurt" - disagreement of whether NiN or Johnny Cash
"My drug buddy" - The Lemonheads
"Last goodbye" - Jeff Buckley
"Strangefruit" - Billie Holiday
"Say hello, Wave goodbye" - Soft Cell
"Wichita Linesman" - Glen Campbell
"God only knows" - Beach Boys
"Glycerine" - Bush
And yes, we all laughed at the last one too.
