To choose just 20 songs from Cliff's catalogue of classics is well nigh
impossible (as other people have already said!). The songs above are really
only the tip of the iceberg but are probably the ones that mean most to
me on a personal basis. Cliff's music has seen me through one messy divorce
and into my happy "2nd-time-around relationship", hence the reason
for the number of love/romance songs at the top of the list! Cliff has
a real insight into what I call the "human condition" - his lyrics
have the knack of saying what I could only think, but never put into words.
While trying to win the affections of the girl who became my (2nd!) wife,
I made great use of Cliff's songs to get the message over - it worked perfectly;
so I have to say thanks to Cliff for not only more than 25 years of superb
music, but also 17 years of a very happy marriage to a girl who was wooed
by his albums on my behalf!
