Re: New song "No Flag" released June 5, 2020

I like it!! Very different to Look Now. Great guitar riff. Would have fitted in on When I Was Cruel. Not many songwriters producing stuff this good and vital at 65 years old!!

Re: My Aim Is True Survivor (Round 8)

Perspective is important. If you came upon MAIT late having heard other albums then it’ll appear pale and understated. However having bought it on the day of release it played non- stop in our student house. Yes TYM is better and the Attractions improve everything but this is where it all started. S...

Re: My Aim Is True Survivor (Round 5)

This is just awful.
Sneaky Feelings, No Dancing and I’m not Angry would all be in my top six.
I’m not Angry is particularly great in the way he is so obviously very bloody angry. Like me now.

I thought it would be King of America as well!

PS Watching the Detectives is not an original My Aim Is True song - it has no place on this list - just a Johnny-come-lately US addition.

Re: How is everyone doing?

I sort of think all the recriminations should wait until this is over and there’s a degree of stability again. There’s an advantage to having a wartime spirit of all sticking together to see us through. For now. Let’s hope that after it’s all over, like for WW2, the leader gets ousted. The great Bri...

Incredible
I stand accused is one of EC’s greatest ever covers.
You are all sick and wrong!
I’ve now voted for the same song five rounds running.
I didn’t want to give it away but how is “having a heart attack round your ankles” a good line or rhyme?

Re: Get Happy!! Survivor - Round 3

Like Fishfinger King will concur no doubt, I'm gutted by this, I really love this song all in 7ths like "You can't Do that" and about 5 years ago, every time I saw The Imposters backstage I always reminded them about this song and that it was in 7ths just to prompt them - but I think I ma...

Re: Get Happy!! Survivor - Round 2

I understand what you say, guys, but 90% of Get Happy!! songs are insanely good (the other 10% being just VERY good). For me it was a choice between B&W World, Beaten to The Punch, Human Touch, and Love For Tender. Black & White World is a very good song, but I'm pretty sure it will go out ...

Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year" (2020 UK tour)

For the record, I think the seemingly constant need from many quarters to politicise the current crisis is unnecessary. Agreed. When Wayne Rooney has to make an anti- government point about it, it’s clearly gone too far. I’m no Tory but I thought the response in the press conference on Thursday was...
