Songs of the week

Topping the list are Alanis Morisette's One Hand in My Pocket and Sheryl Crow's Hole in My Pocket.

Mandy Moore is competitive with the heady moody In My Pocket.

Then Richard Marx gets metaphorical with Hands In Your Pocket.

The Moffats get all Christmassy with Santa Left a Hole In Daddy's Pocket.

Loretta Lynn proves that classic country is not out of the race with the trailer park weepy Deep as Your Pocket.

Iggy Pop makes it interesting with an ode to self love - title unpublishable. Suffice to say it is a rather vivid extension combining Alanis' and Sheryl Crow's titles. He's got one hand in his pocket all right.

Dean Martin, with a cigarette in one hand and a cocktail in the other, was somewhat more constrained, but nonetheless came up with the understated sobering classic Money Burns a Hole in My Pocket. Not one of his best, but it is about a pocket.
