Yes - I know it's getting slightly ridiculous - but the penultimate track is an interesting one, as it's often where some of the weakest songs are buried.
Your choices are:
  • Dial-A-Cliché
  • (I'm) The End Of The Family Line
  • I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday
  • The Lazy Sunbathers
  • Best Friend On The Payroll
  • He Cried (taking the UK tracklisting as the 'official' one)
  • I Like You
  • I Just Want To See The Boy Happy
  • Sorry Doesn't Help
  • Mountjoy
  • Who Will Protect Us From The Police?
  • Lenny's Tune
  • The Secret Of Music

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
1. Family Line
2. He Cried
3. Sunbathers
4. Boy Happy
5. Dial
6. Happen Someday
7. Secret of
8. Do Your Best
9. Sorry
10. I Like You
11. Mountjoy
12. Police

Apart from WWPUFTP, which is a truly horrendous song, this is a very strong collection of songs. Sure, Mountjoy and ILY aren’t among his best stuff, but they’re definitely ok. And the rest is really great.
