i missed this!

those hotter than july/musiquarium singles at the top make it hard to vote for "get it" but uh i'm voting for "get it"

someone has to!

Wait...this isn't Master Blaster? By a mile?

I ain't gonna stand for taht

Zero votes for "Overjoyed" makes zero sense since it's his best 80s ballad.

love light in flight is sick

Overjoyed by a mile

Love Light in Flight totally got robbed!

Someone in another thread (maybe on "I Just Called To Say I Love You") compared this era to Wendy Carlos, and I always think of this now and enjoy it even more.

too cool for zen talk (Eazy), Thursday, 10 June 2021 02:53 (one week ago) link

Positive I voted "Do I Do" but I genuinely like all of these songs outside of the obvious dud.

"Do I Do" and "That Girl" still remain two of the best new tracks recorded for a comp.

So who you gonna call? The martini police (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 10 June 2021 13:06 (one week ago) link

It's mind-blowing that "September" and "Do I Do" both fall into that category.

I've loved "Master Blaster" since it came out. Most of the other songs here have "skeletons" of good melodies/chord progressions, but the arrangements/productions sap the energy. He also started dragging songs out a couple of minutes too long.

Halfway there but for you, Thursday, 10 June 2021 14:24 (one week ago) link

"That Girl" should have won in a walk. And the poll should have had many more voters. (This comes from a guy who didn't vote, of course. But I missed the poll!)

There should also be a poll for best songs recorded for comps. Thinking "Sidewalking" by the Mary Chain, maybe "Sound of Crying" by Prefab Sprout. Surely countless others but how to track them all down. Maybe just a thread.

I think I did that once.

So who you gonna call? The martini police (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 10 June 2021 16:06 (one week ago) link

I strongly disagree with those results.

With Overjoyed I was never able to get past the usual schmaltzy production criticisms of Stevie's 80s output, but I've really come to deeply love it as a jazz standard. lots of great covers

a good to great top five tho!

Not much love for the top two on my part.

Oh. I had not seen Echo. *rends garments*

skeletons is a tune. i would have voted for it.

aka the song that argyll is listening to in the limo in the basement while on the phone in die hard

the live version of Ribbon in the Sky is superjoyous when you get to the "sky falling" breakdown at 5:45 and would've gotten my vote

kind of amazing how many great tracks he put out after the 70's and how that stopped more or less completely in the 90s

I prolly would of voted for ‘Skeletons’ too…v underrated…I found this the other day…I’m sure it’s been posted before but it made my week…
