Shortlist for Pop Gem #89: Songs about cheating
Every week we ask you to nominate overlooked classics and big hits of yesteryear for a spot in our Pop Gem Hall of Fame.
This week's theme was CHEATING – songs about being unfaithful, kissing people we shouldn't be and generally finding out about those lowdown dirty dogs who've been sneaking around behind our backs.
Nominations came in thick and fast – it seems you love to hear a song about a good old sordid affair – but we had to get it down to 10 in the end, and we went for this deceitful bunch:
The final 10
