Best The Jam Songs

I've been waiting for this list for quite a while so I thought I'd make my own.
The Top Ten
1 Going Underground Going Underground Cover Art

I don't here the song yet.. I don't know what I'm talking ABOUT and I'm only listen to Avenged Sevenfold for my entire life..

2 Town Called Malice Town Called Malice Cover Art

Don't get me wrong, I love the jam and their style, but I like this so much because it is different. The gift has a totally different style and this is the best on it. Great lyrics, such an upbeat dancy song.

This is the Jam's most famous song. Appeared in so many films! It's so good. For me, its definitely in the top spot. Every instrument in the song is key! LOVE WELLER'S VOICE!

The jam at their best

3 Down in the Tube Station at Midnight Down in the Tube Station at Midnight Cover Art

A true masterpiece! One of The Jam's and England's most brilliant song. Needs to be in the number one spot!
'And I'm down in the tube station at midnight oh whoa oh ohh ohh! ' <--- iconic land famous lyrics in England.
Its our country's national anthem!

I copied the lyrics to this song for some English homework at school back in 1979. I then finished the homework with my own words. Teachers comments were " a stunning beginning and middle section but failed miserably towards the end" Sorry Mr Jones (teacher)

Fred Cannock

Because they took the keys and she'll think its me...

4 That's Entertainment That's Entertainment Cover Art

Bought the LP on release back in 1980 I believe. Still have it and still love it, brilliant lyrics evoke a melancholy, dreary Englishness (in my mind anyway down here in Melbourne) Weller may be right when he said the demo is better.

As far a Tube Station, why was our protagonist and his wife having dinner and drinks after midnight?

"I've a little money and a take away curry
I'm on my way home to my wife
She'll be lining up the cutlery
You know she's expecting me
Polishing the glasses and pulling out the cork
And I'm down in the tube station at midnight"

England's best song along with Bittersweet Symphony. Should easily be placed at no. 1! This song represents all that The Jam were about.

One of the coolest songs ever... !

My favourite Jam song!

5 The Eton Rifles The Eton Rifles Cover Art

Class warfare, in suburban tones with English inferiority complex built-in

6 Start Start Cover Art

Kind of stunned this is not in the top ten. It's got the catchy Beatles Taxman riff and some good lines "If we communicate for just two minutes only that would be A...Start! "

7 Beat Surrender Beat Surrender Cover Art
8 The Bitterest Pill (I Ever Had to Swallow) The Bitterest Pill (I Ever Had to Swallow) Cover Art
9 The Butterfly Collector The Butterfly Collector Cover Art

Almost hypnotic in its verses. Beautiful.

10 The Modern World The Modern World Cover Art
The Contenders
11 Strange Town Strange Town Cover Art
12 When You're Young When You're Young Cover Art

Absolutely love this song. Lyrics are fantastic and guitar tops it off. Still get goose bumps listening to it

The greatest in a great run of singles from Tue Station to Going Underground. Pure pop genius.

Awesome song- its what I play to feel better.

13 Ghosts Ghosts Cover Art

Wonderful thought provoking tune. Loved it as a 15 yr old as I do today.

14 Absolute Beginners Absolute Beginners Cover Art
15 In the City In the City Cover Art

A famed song by The Jam, and rightly so. Has to be their number 1!

Great song. Fast, melodic, a great blend of their earlier punk and later pop sound

Is the best song of The Jam even better than Town called Malice

16 Man In the Corner Shop Man In the Corner Shop Cover Art

I think this is a amazingly catchy song - one of my favourites - so why is it #16?

Classic suburban song!

17 English Rose English Rose Cover Art

My favourite song of all time! So slow and peaceful. The singing is angelic. On of the world's best songs. Has to be in the top three of any list. It makes me cry! Such a piece of art.

A truly beautiful song from The Jam.

Beautiful acoustic tune

18 Funeral Pyre Funeral Pyre Cover Art
19 Just Who is the 5 O'Clock Hero? Just Who is the 5 O'Clock Hero? Cover Art
20 Private Hell Private Hell Cover Art

Incredibly powerful lyrics. Intense energy. Quite simply, in my humble opinion, the best Jam song ever

Mock the week theme song
