Union City Blues still blows me away every time, even after 30 odd years. Heaven.

Has to be Heart of Glass, but The Tide Is High and Rifle Range are good songs as well.

Hangin' On The Telephone; i think the way she sing's 'oh why cant we talk again?' describes many peoples feelings over a break up

And 'Dreaming', because the lyrics are so lovely.

Atomic is probably my favourite, either that or dreaming closely followed by fade away and radiate.

Good boys one of their more recent songs from them is great, quite an underrated one I think.

It's hard to pick, so many great songs of about equal quality.

Heart of Glass, Call Me, Atomic, Denis, The Tide is High, Hanging on the Telephone, One Way or Another...that's just a handful. They all sound good.

I even quite like the one which some say is their worst single, Island of Lost Souls. I just like it.

Where to start? One of my favourite bands, and all of their albums are quality.

Fade Away and Radiate is probably my very favourite.

Picture This, Atomic, Angels On The Balcony, Maria, Shayla, Accidents Never Happen, Dreaming. The list goes on.

Atomic. Anyone going to see them on their tour? There was a tremendous documentary on bbc4 about them recently, where Iggy Pop no less described them as the 'greatest pop band ever, bar none.' They also shown the fabulously awkward night they were inducted in the the Rock n Roll Hall Fame. They seem to all hate each other.

Rapture has a catchy bassline but Sunday Girl is just a very well written pop song.

I'm going to see them. I've seen them a few times since they came back, and they've always been brilliant. Hoping for more of the same.

Their original break up was very nasty, and there is still a lot of bad feeling between those that came back, and those that were not invited.

So many that I like......... Heart of Glass is probably my absolute favourite.

Dreaming is great. Love the video where Clem Burke looks like he's been stuffed into that horrible suit and drums as if his life depends on it.

One favourite of mine that rarely gets a mention is Pretty Baby off Parallel Lines. Beautiful song, that.

EDIT Btw, I notice Iggy Pop has been mentioned. Iggy and Debbie's duet on 'Well, Did You Evah!' is well worth checking out.

I really like Maria. I think it's one of the best comeback singles ever. Oh and I love Rip Her To Shreds.
