Wow! what a nightmare selecting 20 songs from the abundance of classics Cliff has produced over the years: but here they are. Some of my preferences may change from time-to-time, but this list is 'correct at the time of going to press', as they say: considerably different from the 'Waves Fanzine' survey result, as you can see. For many years, We Could Be Talking, was my 'number 1'. I always marvel at how beautifully this song is sung and performed: one word always enters my head whenever I listen to it - 'absolute perfection' (yes, I know that's two!). As Lost Again never appeared on any of Cliff's albums, I only heard it for the first time a few years ago - It floored me instantly: now, nothing will move that from my 'number 1 spot'. All the following songs put up a strong challenge to obtain a place in my 'Top 20 chart': A Day To Myself, A Song For Susan, Someone I Know, Contrary, Messenger, Watchin' The T/V News, Stains, Laugh It Off, Home, Water, For Debbie and Her Friends, Screen Test, Cold Wind Blowing, If I Had Known, Easy Baby, Secretary, Julia (preferably the 'Studio Tape' version), The Dubious Circus Company, Coathanger, Rayne, A Dream, The Way of Love, No More Rock 'n' Roll, Maybe I'm Right, Prams, Sometime Next Year, Heaven Lend a Hand, That's the Way Our Love Goes, Time - The Magician, April and Jackdaw: There were many others not far behind!
