Frank Sinatra — New York

Party time, drunken end of parties

Got to love a song with abuse in it

Smoking Sax

Universally acknowledged as the best opening line in popular music


Ian Dury — Toast

Just because


Elvis Costello — Shipbuilding

Extraordinarily haunting


Billy Joel — Allentown

Soul in a box


EVERYTHING by Tears for Fears, but especially Mad World

Adolescent angst


Duran Duran — Girls on Film

Essex, baby


Rush — Spirit of Radio

Adolescent rocking with a storming opening riff
