Some twenty years earlier than that we have the Honeycombs with Have I The Right. Try to ignore the Jimmy Savile intro...

Still in the sixties The Honeybus - I Can't Let Maggie Go. I can't find a period live performance unfortunately. I did toy with posting a video of the Nimble advert as it was used as a backing track to that.

A decade earlier than that I present Johnny And The Hurricanes - Reveille Rock. I couldn't find a live performance from that time but here's a great rendition from 1997.

This is the last one on my list for the moment. Half Man Half Biscuit - Trumpton Riots. A John Peel favourite and a really local band to me.

Tom Petty for me would have been "American Girl" just because that was the one I played on the Students Union Jukebox! and was part of the soundtrack to those times.... its on the PE Jukebox!

I especially like the guitar on I Won't Back Down, which is why I chose it. But it's difficult to make a single choice.

Hall & Oates



Seems quite pass-byable. Daryl Hall seems far better more recently
