‘M’ is a really tough choice, and I’ve passed through many excellent contenders, including The King of Pop himself. Next time through, perhaps.
I’ve plumped for Muse and New Born. Three things swayed for it for me. One, they’re a local(ish) band, hailing from Teignmouth, just an hour’s drive from me, still in the beautiful county of Devon. Two, this performance on Top of the Pops still stands out in my memory. And three, it’s a great song – I love the contrast between the soft, piano-driven beginning, and the guitar-heavy finish.
I hope you enjoy it.
