Results: Trust ranked

Postby King Hoarse » Wed Sep 01, 2004 2:01 am

The songs from Trust were ranked in an earlier post, and these are the results:

1. New Lace Sleeves
2. Watch Your Step
3. You’ll Never Be A Man
4. Clubland
5. Big Sister’s Clothes
6. Pretty Words
7. Strict Time
8. White Knuckles
8. Lovers Walk
10. Shot With His Own Gun
11. From A Whisper To A Scream
12. Fish ’N’ Chip Paper
13. Different Finger
14. Luxembourg

Honourable mention: New Lace Sleeves (12 #1s)

I was glad to find that Pretty Words is sorta popular in the ranks, otherwise no surprises. I knew a lot of people like Clubland a lot, but obviously some rankers hate it, which I think is a bit weird, 'cause it sounds like classic Elvis to me. I also thought Shot With His Own Gun would fare way better. Oh, well.

I can't believe anything but Fish 'n Chip Paper got last place. I like the song, but the lyric the title is based around makes me cringe every time.

I think you may have inverted your list, KH.
Like me, the "g" is silent.

It makes me incredibly happy that Lux is last on the list. That song is the worst one EC has ever done.......except for Glitter Gulch.

Actually, "Lovers Walk" is the weakest track on the album. Otherwise, its a perfect album from start to finish. I dont mind "Luxembourg", the lyrics are great.

Not my favorite first post.

"Lovers Walk" is number one for me.

Uh, I thought that From A Whisper To A Scream was more popular than that.
