Badly Drawn Boy - Once Around The Block (XL)

First released last year, this single barely charted and XL are having another stab in the wake of Damon Gough's much-deserved Mercury Prize success.

With its wonderful vibraphone loop, at once funky and romantic, and some beautifully observed lyrics, this is one of the greatest number ones that never was.

It's going round the block again and if you buy nothing else this year, don't miss out on this. *****
