1. (The Angles Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes
2. Welcome to the Working Week
3. Sneaky Feelings
4. Miracle Man
5. Waiting for the End of the World
I wish that I could push a button
And talk in the past and not the present tense
And watch this hurtin' feeling disappear
Like it was common sense
It was a fine idea at the time
Now it's a brilliant mistake

2. No Dancing
3. Alison
4. Blame It On Cain
5. Watching The Detectives (it's always been on My Aim Is True for me. Radio, Radio on the other hand, was a bonus track on the Rykodisc version, so I don't count it as being part of This Year's Model)

Weakest track: "I'm Not Angry"

It's a good thing Red Shoes was at the top of your list.

Weakest: Waiting For the End of the World

I don't think any of the songs on MAIT are weak but a couple of them are underrealized. The cheapo production diminishes "No Dancing" and "Waiting" a bit, and the latter is far better performed by the Attractions on "El Mocambo" and live boots from '77/'78.

1. The Angels Wanna Wear My Red Shoes

2. Watching The Detectives

3. Welcome To the Working Week

4. Less Than Zero

5. No Dancing

This is one of my all time fav albums. I dont think there is a weak song on it - which is why it is such an amazing album cos I usually skip one or two tracks on all albums.
COME ON YOU SPURS!!
