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 Town Called Malice Town Called Malice

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

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.

Brilliant commentary. Brilliant music. "Atheist nutter."

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

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!

3 That's Entertainment That's Entertainment

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

5 Start Start

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! "

8 The Bitterest Pill (I Ever Had to Swallow) The Bitterest Pill (I Ever Had to Swallow)
9 Strange Town Strange Town
10 When You're Young When You're Young

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

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

Good that it is in the top ten but, it EASILY HAS TO BE IN THE TOP THREE! This song is a mix of their slow singing and melodic guitar, making it one of their best. VOTE UP!

14 The Butterfly Collector The Butterfly Collector
15 Funeral Pyre Funeral Pyre
16 Man In the Corner Shop Man In the Corner Shop

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

17 English Rose English Rose

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.

18 Just Who is the 5 O'Clock Hero? Just Who is the 5 O'Clock Hero?
19 Private Hell Private Hell

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