1986: Top 50 Singles

One of The Fall's classic tracks, their version of the 1966 single "Mr. Pharmacist" by San Francisco psychedelic garage-rockers The Other Half, is at the top of our "Best Singles of 1986" list which you can see in full at Cool Music Database. It is one of the precious few tracks from The Fall's ultra-prolific '80s period that the always forward-looking Mark E. Smith may still choose to include in the band's live set today. The b-side of the single, the brilliant "Lucifer Over Lancashire", is in itself "track-of-the-year" material and another worthy addition to our Killer Tracks Hall of Fame.
