Least favourite sisters songs

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

Of course I am. :)

It doesn't come across in most live recordings (and I've never seen it in the flesh so I can't comment) but Come Together is actually a Floorshow-style Doktor-fest.
Trigonometry. It's a sin.

Haven't really got any least favs. Always thought Anaconda was let down by dodgy production a bit though.

An equally probable alternative is that I may have a very peculiar internal jukebox thing going on when I hear Come Together. :lol:

Burry Me Deep always makes me think too hard about grammar, which I resent. Like the song, though.

(And I think that the "ly" doesn't belong in this case...)

When You Don't See Me.

Just plain dull and uninspired. Both song and lyrics.
Only the Americans could have built a place like this in the middle of a jungle.

Never really been a fan of Anaconda or When You Don't See Me. And the 1992 Temple Of Love... I can't stand that!

I'm with mh on this mate. Listening to it now and I'd love to hear a full proper production of it.

Interesting. I've heard it so many times it becomes rather boring!

Personally, I like it. Ever heard the Supersuckers' cover? Worth tracking down.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

I liked Afterhours, the spaghetti western vibe kind of went with the cowboy hats. Perhaps we'd all done one two many, erm, all nighters at the Hyde Park cinema or old Playhouse by the Uni sports hall.
