  45. Lee Robertson says:

    Probably Wings of a Dove for share exuberance and all round joy!

  46. Andreas Barchet says:

    I began listening to Madness chronologically backwards, so the more recent tracks are quite closer to me. “NW5” became one of my favourites through its feature in the German Edgar Wallace spoof “Neues vom Wixxer” (it had an own mix on the soundtrack, though). Its predecessor was built around a cover of “The Wizard”, which I love as well. From their last album, “Leon” has struck me. I’m in awful need of their classic catalogue ;)

  47. Adrian Barrett says:

    Forever Young

  48. yvonne clark says:

    It is a real struggle to choose as i love them all so i will say House of fun although i do love Shame & scandal from The Dangerman Sessions one of their later album releases.

  49. Ross says:

    It has to be Embarrassment. Just sublime.

  50. Dickster says:

  57. Sheila Sloan says:

    House of Fun

  58. Chad Price says:

    One Step Beyond on many days is my nutty fave, but today it’s another another because I am feeling 1 with its protagonist:
    E M B A R R A S S M E N T

  59. Enrico G. says:

    My fav track is “It must be love”.
    Wasn’t it written by them?
    I don’t care, their version is amazing.
    Cheers from Bologna, Italy.

  60. Leigh Saunders says:

    Loads of great tracks here, but it’s ‘bed and breakfast man’ for me. Probably because as a non single it’s not overplayed.

  61. Jean-Paul Lucas says:

    It’s got to be Night Boat to Cairo

  62. NeilKelly says:

    The Liberty of Norton Folgate.

  63. Helen Belton says:

  65. Paul says:

    Tomorrow’s Just Another Day , a great pop band reaching maturity.

  66. Scott G says:

    How do you choose a fav track? This is one of those rare albums where every track is a classic. It is superbly produced and I always loved their clear sharp drum sound. This is truly deserving of a 24bit surround mix as well. Anybody else agree?

  67. Alex says:

    My faves from this album (at the moment) are Land Of Hope And Glory; In The Middle Of The Night and Mummy’s Boy. FTW!

  68. Jason C says:

    Bed and Breakfast Man :-)

  72. Louis Philia says:

    “One Step Beyond…” is the one!

  73. ken says:

    I’d say baggy trousers cause i’m gonna be so excited when i win this i might need a pair

  74. Gregg says:

    OMG. Would love this. Fave track is It Must Be Love with Night Boat To Cairo a close second.

  75. Rob Kirby says:

    Impossible, it will change every day, especially as I think they did a lot of quality b-sides too :) Okay, just to be different – Besides the sublime single (Waiting for) The Ghost Train, and almost single Victoria Gardens how about… Deceives the Eye, Don’t Quote Me on That, That’s the Way to Do It and Animal Farm.

  128. Dan says:

    I was at the very first Prince’s Trust concert at the Dominion Theatre in London in 1982. (Seat, right in the middle of the front row!) Who opened proceedings? Yep, Madness with a storming rendition of God Save The Queen! (in the presence of Charles and Diana). Also performing(!) that night by the way were Joan Armatrading, Kate Bush, Pete Townshend, Jethro Tull (with Phil Collins on drums) and Gary Brooker. What a night and all for a paltry 25 quid.

    Baggy Trousers
    are dancing out of the speakers?

  174. Julie Feathers says:

    Our House

  175. Duncan Nagle says:

    There are too many to list; from the older releases “Stepping Into Line” and “In The City” are tracks that were worthy of a single release, with the same energy as Night Boat and the like. Later on “New Delhi” and “Waltz Into Mischief” are really underappreciated album tracks, and coming bang up to date both “Forever Young” and “NW5” from Norton Folgate are always crowd-pleasers along with “Misery” from Oui Oui, Si Si, Ja Ja, Da, Da. And that’s without a mention of any Dangermen tracks.

    If a gun was put to my head (“Guns”, that’s another good track), I would say it is a toss-up between “Night Boat To Cairo” and “Forever Young”, with the former edging it slightly if only because it is responsible for a flurry of fezzes at every gig, and even before Matt Smith was born Madness were aware that fezzes are cool.

  176. Hilary says:

    One step beyond

    Our House (Stretch Mix)

  287. SteveW says:

    SO many to choose from – but oddly one of my favourites is a non-single from a period when they were, perhaps, commercially on the wane – Blue Skinned Beast – a song about Margaret Thatcher and the Falklands War.

  304. Heinz says:

    Our House

  305. Guy says:

    Not easy to choose, but it has to be ‘Embarrassment’! Loved pretending to play the sax to it as a kid!

  306. dave says:

    My favourite track is – one step beyond.

    great sax playing

  307. Stanley Culler says:

    One of the things that’s not so wonderful about getting older is that it’s harder to find those fantastic moments when something sends electric chills through your entire body and you can’t believe your good fortune. But, when they do come… Oh, it’s so fantastic. One of the very best I’ve had, in a long, long time, was the moment the lights went down in the Warfield in San Francisco and out of the darkness came Chas’ “Hey, You! Don’t watch that…” Best of all was watching people aged 12 to 60, each and every one of them, absolutely lose their minds. So, yeah, I’m going to go with One Step Beyond. :)

  319. Thomas says:

    My Girl

  320. Gary says:

    “Our House”

  321. Rui Dias says:

    Favourite track – Our House

  322. Bob Gates says:

    Walked down the aisle to “It must be love”, got “Baggy Trousers” as my ringtone, but OSB and “Night Boat to Cairo” my two all time faves, classic music with so many lifetime memories associated with it.

    Ok, let it be Grey Day :)

    My Girl

  325. Shaun says:

    Favourite Track – Night Boat to Cairo

    Great video !

  326. fettdog says:

    My favourite track is The Liberty of Norton Folgate. It showed that after all these years the boys still have London in them, and is one of only a handful of songs around the ten minute mark that manages to not only not outstay its welcome, but to be packed with enough ideas to comfortably be even longer!


  327. Marco says:

    Grey Day

  328. Dane Cowel says:

    “Bed & Breakfast Man”

  329. Ed says:

  338. TMT says:

    If you can only pick one, likely has to be “This Must be Love”

  339. David Roberts says:

    Love Madness. Favourite track is difficult though. Either Embarrassment, Yesterday’s Men or Primrose Hill.

  340. Colin Robb says:

    My Fav is “Night boat to Cairo”-when life was much simpler then…

  368. Steinski says:

  376. rs3taylor says:

    Our house has always been my favorite.

  377. Alex Intelligator says:

    My Girl!!!!

  378. Normand Tremblay says:
