  • ‘Sheila’ – Jamie T (2006)

    Lowbrow anthem with highbrow guest star

    The song's narrative arc – a lagered-up ladette experiencing a fizzy pop-induced emotional crisis at the top of her lungs – will be familiar to anyone who's ever been out in Chingford on a Saturday night (or Tuesday brunchtime). However, the song makes this list largely thanks to its canny sampling of John Betjeman's similarly dissolute masterpiece, 'The Cockney Amorist'.
