I don't think it's about country music, I think it was about country names and such. I've got a playlist like this too, which I named "World Trip" and collected all the songs that either had country, city, street etc. names in their titles or were obviously singing about a place in the world.

Talking of Manics' songs, it can be Australia, The Sullen Welsh Heart, Elvis Impersonator (Blackpool Pier), The Next Jet to Leave Moscow and so on.

Yeah I should of phrased it better. Country-themed songs. Kirsty MacColls New England was played which technically isn't a country...

I was wrong, it wasn't either of the three of them, it was Mark Goodier.

I just listened to Graham Norton's radio programme on iPlayer. It was originally on the radio on the 24th of September. And one of the songs they played was So Why So Sad.

I'm listening to Frank Skinner's radio programme and they just played If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next. Also, Frank Skinner said that when he had a chat show, he once played If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next as Aled Jones's walk-on music.

Yesterday, I watched 5 episodes of Come Dine with Me. It was in Cardiff. And they played a bit of You Stole The Sun From My Heart in one episode, and a bit of Motorcycle Emptiness in another episode.

That's brilliant. If you're going to get it wrong, that is the way to do it.
