Going to have to go with Bragg this time

Even Jamie Theakston couldn't sully 'A New England' entirely

Oh god, Richman by a fair bit. Classic accidentally-on-purpose mishearing on behalf of a friend of mine a few years ago: 'Why is he singing about a ringworm?'

Came here to post this.

Jonathan Richman means a whole lot more to me than Billy Bragg does but in this case I'd go with Billy because that song is just full of brilliant lyrics. Not a huge fan of the Jonathan Richman song really and the album it came from is one of the weaker Modern Lovers albums.

"England Prevails" - the perfect official title for this poll, I realize far too late. Fuck.
