so is 'I Can't Stand Up for Falling Down'.class tune.

in fact, he's never had a number 1 with a self-penned song. Oliver's Army only made it to no2.there's your bit of trivia for the day!
Forgot about 'I Can't Stand Up...'. Yeah, great stuff. He's never had a number 1 at all, as far as I know.

A much-covered song is Big Star's Kangaroo and I don't understand why. It's a terrible song.

Speaking of Elvis C - What's So Funny 'Bout Peace Love and Understanding is a bleedin' brilliant cover of Nick Lowe's tune.
I'm not too gone on some of his other covers, though 'Good Year for the Roses' is nice.
Radiohead do a rubbish cover of a half-assed EC song - 'I'll Wear It Proudly'.
He does a nice version of Sleeper's 'What Do I Do Now' and 'She' by Charles Aznavour.

really like the former, not so much the latter. i've only heard 'What Do I Do Now' on the radio, what album is it actually on?
