I'll accept these replies ONLY if you have not been participating in this elimination thing. Me too found it very hard to narrow to 4 songs...especially as BEATEN TO THE PUNCH, MOTEL MATCHES, OPPORTUNITY and TEMPTATION all wanted in my final four. Pick 4 for your old friend guys....PLEASE! we all get such little thrills these days. :P

not been participating, but here we go

Beaten to the Punch
B Movie
Clowntime is Over
Five Gears in Reverse

unfortunately...well, can you guess my criterion? there's a game to play: how to these four fit together?

I would almost venture a guess....the 4 you never saw live??? But TENDER, HUMAN TOUCH alongside a couple others are equally rare live to these.

Sorry BA, that was just me foxing around pretending so I could squeeze five into four . Love For Tender is an amazing way to start an album, that ascending organ part never fails to make me smile and % Gears sounds so great live _ I'm not sure if I've seen that live - maybe at Exeter in 1981 ?
I'm pretty sure they've never been performed together like that !
