Last week, from a suggestion by f_lawless and with a €50 Golden Discs voucher redeemable in any Golden Discs store on offer, I asked you to name your favourite song with heartbreak as a theme.

The response was incredible. Thank you for a great playlist.

This week’s competition is dedicated to SOQ, who lost his dear friend Caroline last week.

Third Place
:

Dry Your Eyes by The Streets

Col writes:

“This one is pretty sincere and puts a bit of vulnerability on display, which should be commended! Heartbreak is hard!”

Runner-up:

Family Life by The Blue Nile

Unmutual writes:

“Sometimes heartbreak involves a third party…”

Winner:

Walk On By by Dionne Warwick

Janet, dreams of an alternate universe writes:

“Following my worst break up my ex cruely moved directly down the hill to an apartment I could see very well from my balcony, to top it off it was over the bar I worked in and the cheating fupper would walk past at least ten times a day often with whatever flavor of the month he was dazzling, well this song fit the bill nicely.”

Nick says: Well done, Janet and Thanks all.

Thank Flanagan it’s Friday.

It’s that time of the week when the Broadsheet commenters briefly emerge from the dank basement back into the world, blinking at the sunlight, and putting the kettle on as they stick on an oul’ tune. In other words: it’s music competition time.

This week the theme comes courtesy of reader f_lawless who suggests your favourite song with heartbreak as a theme.

Last week’s wonderful one-hit winner here.

Golden Discs

The votes are in.

Last Friday, with a suggestion from Scottser and a €50 Golden Discs voucher on offer, I asked you to name your favourite one-hit wonder.

You answered in your many dozens creating a sole-hit strewn playlist for the ages.

But there could be only one winner.

Third Place:

Rapper’s Delight by The Sugarhill Gang

Penfold writes:

“Whether or not it’s the best one hit wonder, it’s definitely one of my favourites and possibly the most important.”

Runner-up:

Swords Of A Thousand Men by Tenpole Tudor

Gary Flood writes:

“Men larking about in a field with weapons and chainmail. And a horse.
Gotta be Tenpole Tudor and “Swords of a Thousand Men”. Innit?”

Winner:

Mary’s Prayer by Danny Wilson

Friscondo writes:

“A sublime piece of soul/pop that immediately brightens your day when it comes on the radio. Hard to believe that they didn’t follow it up with more hits, although writer Gary Clark went on to write for a host of others, from Natalie Imbruglia to Loyd Cole.”

Nick says: Well done Frscondo and thanks all.

Thank Flatley it’s Friday.

It’s that time of the week when the guns fall silent, a truce is called and the battle-weary Broadsheet commenters make their way through the blood-soaked fields of No Man’s Land to have a kickabout and a smoke with the enemy. In other words: it’s music competition time.

This week the theme comes courtesy of reader Scottser, who suggests your favourite one hit wonder.

Here’s mine.

Golden Discs

The votes are in.

Last week, inspired by a suggestion from f-lawless and with a €50 Golden Discs voucher on offer, I asked you to name your favourite song with strong vocal harmonies.

You answered in your dozens.

But there could be only one winner:

Third Place:

Over And Done With by The Proclaimers

Jasper writes:

“Probably not one of the better known songs on the list, but was always turned up to 11 for a sing-song at a session in years gone by.”

Runner-up:

White Winter Hymnal by Fleet Foxes

Capernosity & Function writes:

“For the wintry day that’s in it. If medieval monks were put in a recording studio this is what they would produce. A wonderful evocation of Gregorian chant. Knocks me out every time I hear it.”


Winner
:

Mexico by The Staves

Andy Pipkin writes:

“You could pick absolutely anything by these three sisters, just unreal vocals and sublime harmonies!! Enjoy!”

Nick says: Well done, Andy and thanks all.
