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!
