ThomasOShea's current selection is:
The Lone Ranger
by Quantum Jump
So here's what I've come up with as the 'anti-Radiohead' after a week of OK Computer, which, let's face it, isn't the cheeriest of listens. This is certainly much more upbeat, though it did manage to get #BannedByTheBBC due to its hard-hitting lyrical content:
_____________________________________________________
"The Lone Ranger" was first released in 1976. After it was chosen as Tony Blackburn's "Record of the Week" (the nationwide morning radio show with the highest ratings in the UK at the time), it was banned - some fragments of lyrics were deemed to have "drug" and "homosexual" references. The BBC stopped playing the record and it failed to chart as a result. [...]

The band would however make an unexpected return ... when a re-release of the "Lone Ranger" single became an unexpected hit. The song had been widely played by Kenny Everett on both his radio and TV shows. Re-released in 1979, it eventually reached number 5 in the UK Singles Chart. The band reconvened for an appearance on Top of the Pops.
