1. XTC - Earn Enough For Us (from Skylarking, 1986)

Skylarking is my favourite XTC album. Produced by Todd Rundgren and spawning any number of potential great singles, Earn Enough for Us is a simple, but beautiful pop song about youthful love, marriage and relative poverty. It's completely at odds with The Specials' 'Stupid Marriage' and resolutely idealistic and upbeat, but just great nevertheless.

Possibly XTC's masterpiece album - although there are many contenders.
