I'm not answering WHAR's question, for so many reasons.

But to seanpointblank, there are a few, like yourself, who dig Broken, and good on you. I think I speak for most of the board when I say that Broken is one of my least favorite songs by anyone, and certianly one of the worst things EC has recorded. I'm just glad he didn't write it--there's solace there. When I asked the question, I fully expected people to pick Only Flame in Town, with the caveat that it was the demo version on (I think) ATUB. It's actually a good song with bad production and Daryl freakin' Hall. Broken is just painful.

That's me, though. And you answered your way, which is the point of the game.

Now back to junior high...

Oh, and for the record... I know this is a game that is supposed to be FUN and all, since it's a GAME... but you don't have to answer that(or any of mine, Noise)... c'mon, lets keep taking it too seriously.

RIDICULOUS.

Almost Blue, because it's 1.50am and it's soothing after a day of lifting and shifting boxes. I've just put it on, from Let's Get Lost (The Best Of Chet Baker Sings).

"All those things that you promised with your eyes...", he sings.

Georgie and Her Rival! I love the first line.

Yes, but it was meant to be a joke. It was a juvenile question which was asking for a juvenile responce(or maybe even a serious one). It's not as if Bonnie Bramlett is unrelated to our favorite little Elvis.
