Best Housemartins songs

Postby Mechi » Tue Jun 06, 2006 11:35 pm

Yes, someone had to give the guys some credit [though some of us may not like what Norman Cook did next... but I think Fatboy Slim is alright].
Here's my list [in order of likeliness]... keep it short if you can.
Think [for a minute]
Bow down
Bell
Happy hour
Five Get Over Excited

I think that the song title I've got maybe wrong (that happens when you use Soulseek among spanish speaking members)... could it be Build???? It's the only thing that is pronounced similar to Bell of which I can think of.

I like the Housemartins a lot.
Happy Hour is a great song (and funny). [:D]
Caravan of Love is another favorite of mine.

Mine:

Caravan of Love
Build
The Light Is Green
He Ain't Heavy
5 Get Over Excited
Happy Hour
Sheep
Flag Day
People Who Grinned

Some don't appreciate Fatboy Slim. Some don't appreciate the Beautiful South.

Norman "Fatboy Slim" Cook was The Housemartins Bassist and Backing vocalist....you probably have heard some of Fatboys output, undoubtedly.
