Lust a prima vista
anonymous call
a poison pen
a brick in the small of the back... again

music is a little uninspired but a great lyric makes it an 8 for moi

Radio Berlin

I have to go with 12 too. this is one of my absolute favorites.
but it's only second best on vauxhall, after why don't you find out for yourself.

Uninspired? It's just the right tune that does not overweight the lyrics, it flows hauntingly, soothingly, encapsulates the relentless words.


from the Ice Age to the dole age
An 8 from me. Great lyrics, dull melody.

Your Arsenal

yes I am blind
Hey, how you doing? :)

#1 Why Don't You Find Out For Yourself.... #2 Speedway! ...every song on this album is great (except for Billy Budd :rolleyes:) It changes but that's how I feel right now.

I'm good biatch, how u been? you've been lost.

#1 speedway for me. and Billy Budd is great, the lyrics atleast.

DOes the song stand up on its own though? I don't think it does. In the context of side 2 of V&I (showing my age there) it just seams effortlessly. And is beautiful

I just don't belong.

Though I'm reminded of Billy Idol at "I am falling and theres noone to catch me."

A PERFECT 10. This song sez it all about me, my life and my love for Moz.
Don't rake up my mistakes, I know exactly what they are...LOVE this song!!!


lovable loser
Dont fret, I realized I posted a line from "Why dont you find out" mistakes are for being too loving a person. Seriously.

The sanest days are mad. I am mine :p
