So fucking torn between "Street Life" and "A Song For Europe" here. The former has HEY GOOD LOOKING BOYS but the latter has Ferry self-consciously lapsing into French with no warning at all.

"Street Life" (in my top 10 of all-time favorite songs), followed closely by "Mother of Pearl."

That's another poll

"And the Bridge... it sigh" - it's all about Song For Europe.

I'm sacking my typist.

Stevie T, Tuesday, 10 June 2008 15:48 (twelve years ago) link

it's a tie between "amazona", "psalm" and "mother of pearl". "mother of pearl" wins on lyrics, the vocal on "psalm" is just utterly ridiculous - it's songs like this that make ferry so fascinating to me, there's a real masculinity to the way he sings that's thuggish and real, he sounds both broken and invincible - but then "amazona" has that really cool out of phase bit that sounds like the record is warped. "amazona" it is!

"Just Like You" is so lovely and melancholy.

Bodrick III, Tuesday, 10 June 2008 18:29 (twelve years ago) link

really, all these songs are top drawer.

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn, Tuesday, 10 June 2008 18:39 (twelve years ago) link

This album is all about Manzanera for me, so I'm going with Amazona.

allen Baekeland, Tuesday, 10 June 2008 22:34 (twelve years ago) link

I gave it to "Just Like You"

Joe, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 03:11 (twelve years ago) link

intensely difficult poll. Going with Serenade for right now but I'm happy with every single track

Elvis Telecom, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 03:29 (twelve years ago) link

streetlife is my jam.

dan selzer, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 03:32 (twelve years ago) link

PARTY TIME WASTING

Mother of Pearl, but the live performance of Psalm on the DVD almost pushed it to 1

iago g., Wednesday, 18 June 2008 02:28 (twelve years ago) link

"A Song For Europe".

"Amazona" had a great riff though (And I believe Ice-T thought so too)

Geir Hongro, Wednesday, 18 June 2008 10:45 (twelve years ago) link

I think this was the second album I ever bought (aged 11). It still has to be "Street Life", though - my favourite Roxy track, and one of my favourite singles ever ever ever.

James Redd and the Blecchs, Wednesday, 18 June 2008 13:20 (twelve years ago) link

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn, Wednesday, 18 June 2008 23:14 (twelve years ago) link

Raw Patrick, Wednesday, 18 June 2008 23:34 (twelve years ago) link
