Although the poll finished when I handed the spreadsheet to Frank at Bath in Dec, I am still reading your lists.

Perhaps we'll do it again later this year in view of the new album coming out......

Amy worked in a bar in Exeter, Springsteen came clear in my headphones - Frank, did you write these lyrics for me?

I'm going with, In no particular order.

1.Peggy sang the blues
2.Redemption
3.Worse things happen at sea
4.Journey of the magi
5.I knew prufrock
6.I am Disappeared
7. Romatic Fatigue
8. Better Half
9. St Christopher
10. The Next Round

St. Christopher was the first song that really got me in to Frank Turner and actually got me through a really difficult period in my life. Then I bought England Keep My Bones and after that I've purchased every album.

Honorable mention goes to Long Live The Queen, To Take You Home, Our Lady of the campfires.

1) Redemption
I've made a ton of mistakes, more than I'm proud to admit. And this song to me for the most part says you can either carry on making the mistakes or learn from them - and hopefully fix whatever you've screwed up in the process. I dunno, I just fucking love this song.

2) Long Live The Queen
Whe my mum had breast cancer, I used to listen to it a hell of a lot. I guess it kinda helped me get through those horrible few months. Since my family etiquette is not to talk about jack shit and just get on with things.

3) I Really Don't Care What You Did On Your Gap Year
Had a friend who went through a similar experience. A night out round town, and we all got chatting to a group of girls. None of them would shut up about this holiday they'd just been on us, most of us seeing it was a lost cause gave up quickly. Not Chris, no he kept trying.
To cut a long story short, he goes back to her place and she opens up Facebook and she starts showing him pictures and within about half an hour her sister and daughter had woke up. So pissed out of his skull he went for the sister and almost pulled her... Or so he says.

4) Sunday Night
Nothing like having a smoke, knowing you should go to bed early but the bed in on the other side of the room. Screw it, roll another.

5) Father's Day (Second Three Years version)
I can obviously relate to both versions in a few aspects, but for me the Second Three Years version has far more emotion than the full band version. At least to me.

6) Anymore
I first heard this one when Frank played it at the O2 in Leeds back in 2012. It sent shivers down my spine, and still does whenever I listen to it. Utterly beautiful.

7) Nights Become Days/Brother
Nights Become Days because one of my best mates went through a hard time, ended up on Heroin on and off for a few months. He was a fool, but amazingly nobody gave him a hard time (except his parents) and he has so far been away from drugs and such for 2 years. Or at least last I saw him, we sadly had a falling out about a year ago and our relationship never recovered. So I had to include "Brother" for the same basic reason, it reminds me of the good times we had.

8) Worse Things Happen At Sea
Pretty much sums up everything I would want to say to the majority of my ex girlfriends, especially as I'm usually the guy that gets screwed over.

9) Loosing Days
If the pain in my back or the sciatica is getting me down, and I throw this on and it cheers me up... Usually. Kinda helps remind me that I don't have to be dictated to by my back, and in fact that's the wort thing for it.

10) Thatcher Fucked The Kids
The first song by Frank I heard, how could it not be on the list?
