Sproutmash… The Ultimate Prefab Sprout Song Ranking

The very first use of Facebook was to do what Mark Zuckerberg called “FaceMash” – he harvested pictures from his users and allowed people to rank how “hot” they were by comparing one against another.

And we still trust him with our data.

In a slightly less controversial mode, Sproutology proudly presents “SproutMash”, allowing comparison of songs one at a time to determine which are the best. Every released or public domain Prefab Sprout/Paddy McAloon song is in the list. Click on the one you prefer below, and do as many as you can. It’s surprisingly addictive.

The current rankings are here (there will be a more flashy interface soon).

  1. Great work from yourself. Your knowledge and workrate on the Prefab legacy is second to none. The gems you have uncovered! (esp the stuff from my loft) I doubt theres ANYONE out there who has ever put more into researching and chronicling any rock bands history. More power to your elbow. Roy

  2. God, I love this site.

    My first album was “Two Wheels Good”(I live in Hawaii).

    I bought it after reading a review in Stereo Review.

    I have been a fan ever since.

    The album got me through my grandfather’s death.

    I love that the Paddy McAloon songbook is so rich that you can rank “Appetite” at #35.
