I keep coming back to that "The Blues are Still Blue" Lip Dub thingy. Gloriously goofy, and I like the song about 89% more after several viewings. Thanks bendy.

Otm! Gave me a whole new appreciation for the song. What a joyful bunch.

A schoolyard of teens united in song, singing and dancing clumsily around Seville orange trees could well be a dream image from 90s B&S.

four weeks pass...

I should have put Play for Today *much* higher. What a track.

I had but one Peacetime track on my hastily-assembled ballot. I'm wiser now and have even, finally, procured a physical copy. (Write About Love too, fercrissakes!) I also had a nice image prepared for "Play for Today", so I was doubly sad to see it slip down the rankings in late voting.

Put it here, You're allowed!

This poll was responsible for B&S cementing themselves in my favourite top 5 or so bands. Before they were a band I liked generally, loving a few songs and a couple albums. Now their entire catalogue just makes me very, very happy.

Thanks, Nag!

Definitely the rare and weird category of favorite band I unabashedly adore and want to listen to all the time, except for when I don't and find them too precious and need to set them aside for several months or even years.

Ha ha, yes. Same.

Fourthed. (I'd practically given up on them before this poll.)

Good cop, Babcock (Chinaski), Monday, 28 January 2019 16:04 (ten months ago) link

Yes! I feel this way about the Pixies too.

I've only just worked out that the backing vocals at the end of Play for Today are 'author, author'. I've been singing 'up your jumper'.

And it bears repeating: what a fucking great song.

Good cop, Babcock (Chinaski), Sunday, 10 February 2019 19:41 (ten months ago) link

I though it was something like "up the mountain"

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Sunday, 10 February 2019 19:45 (ten months ago) link

two months pass...

I totally think it is 'up the mountain' but other days I hear 'author author' - both have resonance. Anyway, what a song and would probably be my number one if I were to vote today.

The lyrics on the sleeve are "author author" but my ears refuse to hear it as anything but "up the mountain".
