Good choice, that man. I am a big fan of The Cure myself and Friday, I'm In Love, whilst being one of their fluffier numbers is, none the less, a very catchy little pop song.
Of course, it was released in 1992 and so poor Spam must be very behind the times because—if it really is his favourite song—one might have thought that it would have at least placed when Spam was on Desert Island Discs, wouldn't one?
I suppose that it is possible that Cameron only heard Friday, I'm In Love after late May, but one would have thought that it would take a lot to displace such a long-term favourite as Dylan's Tangled Up In Blue, eh?
Perhaps my mother got it wrong; can anyone confirm or deny this? But, I would like to say that, if she is correct, it amply justifies the suspicion that politicians just can't stop lying. And if they are willing to lie, in public and on record, about such trivial things, just imagine what they'll do to cover up the big, bad shit.
UPDATE: I couldn't find a decent quality video of Friday, I'm In Love so here's one of their rather more beautiful songs: 1987's Just Like Heaven—from Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me—featuring an almost slim Fat Bob.
As I recall, it's filmed at Beachy Head and the woman in the middle 8 is Fat Bob's wife (girlfriend at the time), Mary.
