In no particular order except the one that they are in:

'The Last of the Famous International Playboys'
'Our Frank'
'Whatever Happens I Love You' (really enjoy the music of this song)
'The Teachers Are Afraid of the Pupils' (delightfully haunting with that 'Symphony No. 5' sample, though I'd replace the lyric "frightening" with "frightful", just so it'd rhyme more)
'National Front Disco'
'Sister, I'm a Poet'
'Girl Least Likely To'
'Speedway' - especially this rendition:

Darn, that's ten. No space for dearest beloved 'November Spawned a Monster'.

That's not to say his more recent work is unworthy of favour, just that I'd rather listen to his older stuff. Hopefully his next album will be an experimental return to lyrical brilliance.

Well, at the minute...

1) Speedway
2) We'll Let You Know
3) Sunny
4) Hairdresser on Fire
5) Such a Little Thing Makes Such a Big Difference
6) Life is a Pigsty
7) November Spawned A Monster
8) The Loop
9) Jack the Ripper
10) All You Need Is Me

But literally, in a couple of hours time I'd probably give you an entirely different list - perhaps apart from the top few. Speedway is the definite favorite I believe, but aside from that, all very much subject to change!
That really was incredibly difficult...
