I was just listening through their greatest hits, and wondered, what are people's favourite tunes of theirs? For me it's a hard choice: I could've picked "House of Love" for the raps alone ("Mother Earth she's on overload / one more war and she might explode"), or "Around the World" for the lovely B chorus with the flute sample, but in the end I had to choose "It's Alright", the song with one of the most memorable intros of the nineties. And you?

"Deep". ("It's Alright" close second).

Last night, under the influence of rather a lot of alcohol, I proclaimed "Stay Another Day" to be one of the greatest songs ever written. Now sober, I still kind of stand by this (well, sort of). However, House of Love and It's Alright are also cracking songs. I liked the one they did with Gabrielle as well. They really were quite a good band, weren't they?

I know this isn't a S/D question, but, really, destroy their godawful version of West End Girls.

Oh yeah, "Deep", that'd be in my top 5 too. I kinda liked their "West End Girls" too, but I heard it before the original.

"Stay Another Day". Christmas single with bells. Biggest chorus ever. Drunken weepy hugging ensues.

yeah, 'house of love' is probably the answer.

'it's alright' loses a whole bunch of points as far as i'm concerned because of brian harvey's hat in the video.
