Lust a prima vista
This song could be a 6... maybe a 7... but the explosive kegs line makes it nearly unlistenable for me.

i don't understand why people object so much about the 'explosive kegs' business.

It made me cringe the first few times, thats all. I don't think I would play that if people were in. I love the kegs myself when no one is about. :p
good-o. how was your sleep?
 
This poll should have further breakdowns by the voter's age and religious background. Maybe those of us who rated it below 6 are a bit older and a bit more warped by Catholicism. I'm guilty on both counts, despite all my efforts to counter the latter.

It's much better live in my opinion. I never really liked the album version because it's a bit boring and seems to drag on forever. I was a bit disappointed when I read that it was in the setlist last year, but when I saw him in December I was really surprised how good it was. A year ago I would have given it a 5, now it's 8.

A ring a ding ding
kegs and legs not great, but puts a smile on my face. As for the rest of the song...music and lyrics are beautifulllllllllll

'Dear God..' is dross, dross, dross. If this is how some people feel about "Come Back To Camden", then I have now just fully understood what it's like.
 

hatfull

HIM-full
I gave it a six, it's not my fave song on the album, but it's ok.

It sounds better with head phones when you are just about to drift off to sleep. The song keeps growing on me.
