Let's celebrate the greatest music city in the world with some of its finest music.
The Stone Roses - Made of Stone
"Sometimes I fantasise / When the streets are cold and lonely / And the cars they burn below me.”
Released in February 1989 as a teaser for the forthcoming debut album, this was one of The Stone Roses’ most enigmatic songs.
They memorably performed it live on BBC 2’s Late Show, only to have a power cut stop them in mid-flow.
