    Of course this leaves several favourite tracks which aren't on the studio albums
    Our Swimmer, In Vivo, The Drill, Eardrum Buzz, Serious of Snakes, Wir:Vien etc.
    I'm still working my top threes out (they can change on a day to day basis, you know). But we should keep a tally and see what's the Wire top 20. Even better would be a knockout cup competition. The Wedding Present did in in one of their old websites. Weput all Wire songs into a hat and each day one song goes up against another and the forum folk vote on their personal favourite. It gives us a chance to decide on the merits of, say, Small Black Reptile against Brazil. The winner goes through to the next round and so on until we have an eventual champion in front of a full house at Wembley - or as a Scot, Hampden. I'll let Craig work it all out....
    "I'll let Craig work it all out.... "


    I ran the A List on Wireviews for years, and that still gives me nightmares. There were tentative plans to start something similar on, but it'd be a lot of work for relatively little reward, and so it's on the back-burner. If anyone else wants to tally the results from this thread, though, feel free, obviously.
    i'm that anal that i like lists & would consider it. however, it's now worth it until we have somewhat more replies than 5! dunno how many subsribe to this forum, but 5 dozen would make it worthwhile!
    Just three songs? Very hard...especially in the case of the golden three albums...

    Non-"proper" album catch-all: A Question Of Degree, Germ Ship, It Can't Be True Can It?
    It always changes. Just depends on the mood. I remember at some point I liked "Mr. Suit" but that song is my least favorite now. On Chairs missing I have liked "French Film Blurred" and "Sand In My Joints" and "Heartbeat". On Send I like "Germ Ship" and "I Don't Understand" and "Spent."
