Best Welsh Songs



Here’s a broad, wide reaching, question for you.

What are the best songs by Welsh artists? :wales:

To get an idea of the boundaries I’ll allow bands like Future Of The Left be classed as Welsh (though I guess that means you can include the Velvet Underground too), but what do youse reckon like?

Just pick one each please, nothing more offputting when someone starts a thread and then someone piles in with 50 suggestions killing the conversation.


Stereophonics - More Life On A Tramps Vest


Meilyr Jones - Strange Emotional


Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci - Patio Song


Oggi Oggi Oggi Oi Oi Oi


I’m going with my favourite from Mwng.



Sex Bomb


heywoooood lane lalalalalal faces something something heywoood lane lalalala







Budgie - Breadfan


Come on, there’s gotta be more than this


All the best welsh songs are old, or in Welsh, or sung by colliery choirs (or all three). The best Welsh song is Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau anyway.


Black Strobe - Abwehr Disco
Evils - Lord Just Cant Do It For You
Manics - Motorcycle Emptiness or 4st7lb
SFA - Juxtaposed With You or Gathering Moss
Its Jo and Danny - Repentant Song



oooh just remembered:

Melys - Chinese Whispers

a beauuuuutiful slice of pop that won the John Peel Festive Fifty back in the day.


Definitely something by John Cale - I’m going for I Keep a Close Watch.
