Sorry to be picky, but that song is from New Skin... ;-)

I noticed that I answered this thread 7 years ago (!) (it does not seem so long ago, Nancy!). I may have different choices now...

Cheers,
Lisa

Thank you Lisa. I removed the reference to that album because I really don't like any of the songs on that album.

I just realised that when I made my original list all those years ago, Old Ideas and Popular Problems did not exist! So, without further ado, my favourite song (I'll play by the original rules this time and choose just one) from those albums, respectively, are: Show me the Place; You Got Me Singing.
