Last week, with a Currys PC World gift voucher worth an astounding €20 on offer, I asked you to name your favourite song by a Welsh musician or band?
You answered in your dozens.
But there could be only one winner.
A word about the winner: Lisa Butler did choose Motorcycle Emptiness first but her entry only listed the song without giving any commentary on why she liked it. What we’re looking for in these competitions is to be able to hear the song anew – to see it through the eyes of the reader. So you have a much better chance of winning if you expand on your reasons for liking it. Capernosity‘s passion for the Manics shone through in his entry (below) so that’s why he had to be the winner.
Myfanwy by Cerys Matthews
“A beautiful rendition of a ‘How on earth could she have turned me down for him?’ song.”
Juxtaposed With U by Super Furry Animals
Motorcycle Emptiness by Manic Street Preachers
Capernosity & Function writes:
“It is my favourite song of all time. I never miss the Manics when they come to Ireland. I saw them in the Tivoli around October/November 1994; just three months later Richey Edwards walked off into the ether. I remember there were some parts of the gig where he kept banging his forehead off the microphone. Who knows what was going through his mind at the time. He could write some lyrics though.”
Nick says: Thanks all.
