The votes are in.

Last week, with a voucher worth a princely 25 to spend at Golden Discs on offer, I asked YOU to name your favourite song that mentions another song or artist?

You answered in your dozens.

But there could be only one winner.

Third Place:

Bagatelle – Summer In Dublin

Slightly Bemused writes:

“I was singing a song I heard somewhere, called “Rock ‘n’ roll never forgets.
When my hummin’ was smothered by a 46a and the scream of a low flying jet.” For those interested, Rock ‘n’ Roll Never Forgets, by Bob Seger:

Runner up:

Ian Dury & The Blockheads – Reasons To Be Cheerful Part 3

Danny writes:

Some of the singers and performers mentioned:
Buddy Holly
Good golly, Miss Molly
The Bolshoi Ballet
Levi’s and Scotty (Moore)
We’re Willy Harris (skiffle star)
Listening to Rico (Rodriguez) went on to play with the Specials
Shostakovich
Smokey Robertson
John Coltrane
Adriano Celentano (Italian singer)

Lots more famous people, but all the above involved in music. Actually I saw him [Dury} perform in the ill-fated Stardust a few weeks before the tragic fire and when I was there the escape door were chained and locked.

Winner:

The Replacements – Alex Chilton

Brian Ahern writes:

“Children by the million sing for Alex Chilton when he comes ’round
They sing “I’m in love. What’s that song? I’m in love with that song.”
Alex Chilton of Big Star fame or course!

Last week: Win Nick’s Voucher

Golden Discs

Thanks Bertie Blenkinsop

    Excellent choice: congratulations @Brian!

    This was one of the surprise finds that makes this competition a regular treasure! I had not heard of either the song or the artist before, and enjoyed going on a new musical journey :)
