Worst Jam single?

Post by Five Minutes »

I liked them a lot but I thought one or two of their singles were a bit ropey.


All Around the World, a non song IMHO.

News of the World.. another filler like All Around The World.... Not a touch on Modern World... and none as good as The Strangs Who Wants the World?

'News Of The World' is my favourite Jam song and Paul Weller didn't write it... :)

Worst single...'David Watts'....and Weller didn't write that either.

Being a singles fan of The Jam, I liked most of them, and did not have a fav. Just good music when I was at school :grin: :grin:

News of the World is great agreed. One of their best along with When You're Young.

I also thought Absolute Beginners was a bit meh.

Can't get on with 'Absolute Beginners' but enjoy most of their other singles. 'Tube Station' is an absolute classic.
