In that case I shall not disappoint

Not quite sure if this counts but, although I love the song, I'm not overly fond of the radio session version of 'Good Things'. The demo is superb though imho

Itīs interesting how many people find Body and Soul the worst Sisters song....to me It's one of the grooviest Sisters tunes.....almost like a poppier version of Alice. The lyrics may be somewhat silly and naive...but so what...

The least favourite? no such thing really.....Walk Away maybe.....not bad, but rather boring......and Still & Arms.....the haunting lack of new ideas nowdays....

For me it's a close run thing between Phantom & 1959

well...there is that Laughing

I almost went for Ozymandias, but I think that being on the cassette single b side it was meant to be a joke.

It's got a nice little bassline. I loved playing it back in the days of TMM.

For me "least favorite" is relative to my expectations. Vision Thing has a couple of clunkers on it (I Was Wrong and When You Don't See Me), but I always felt that Blood Money is nowhere near as good as the rest of the FALAA-era material. There is something that annoys me about it, like it never really lifts off the ground.

I like it. Maybe being released after The Reptile House E.P. and Temple of Love is the problem for that song. After 2 such blasting masterpieces the single possibly couldnīt really live up to the expectations (also being the first release on WEA). But as I said, I like it, although I think the other 3 songs on the record are even better.

even the detractors seem split over it. big si or weebles, cant remember, which dislikes the record but loves it live. i personally love the hi-hat bit that goes "te-te-te-te te-te-te-te te-te-te-te te-te-te-te te-te-te-te te-te-te-te te-te-te-te te-- tiss!" when played live.

in fact if it wasnt for the weight of the 12"s i had bought before (TOL ,Alice, Rep House Ep) the Body and Soul 12"could well have been definitive of the sisters for me. THE best version of Body Electric without question.

hey! do you think if Von read this thread he'd care a blind f**k? answers on a brick to......devnull.

as for YCBTO does anyone consider that its a worse B-side than, say, a slightly embarrassing anthem to drunkenly bumming Astbury? It wasn't me... thought not. Our fearless leader!

YCBTO is fine.

It's a good song and also a perfect flipside/counterpart to "More" - "learning to cry for fun and profit" indeed; well here's the "fun" part. "I need all the love I can get"/"yeah yeah yeah yeah you could be the one, just get undressed". The two songs just work together.

Will I Dream always seemed a weak, limp, meandering nadir of the Pearson years to me. That's my vote.
