Chase the Fire...that was the easy one.

Same Here. I went with Chase The Fire because the first time I ever saw it done LIVE in 1986 (on the Moody Blues tour) it had the ever powerful bass drive that impressed me big time. And when Cy yelled "yeah" (after "you shout the lines") with an ensuing echo throughout the amphitheater - Chase was sealed as an all time fave for me.

Incedently, Camphor got nudged out by 1 vote under Built For The Future.

CHASE ... 3 times a charm.. way to go ADAM!!!!

I think some good songs got voted out.

Interesting album. Not The Fixx we know today. It's a different, more upbeat, rhythmical, even sort of a strange sounding album.

08-17-2005, 12:28 PM
Make that 4 times for Chase. I also say, way to go Adam!

Secret Separation.....

My wife's favorite....so I'll go with it again....

Hard to pick, I went with Built For The Future. Great positive vibe.
Cool lyrics. great tune. ...a conquer all, a desert stall that serves a drink to people under sun...

Agree with The Flow...Built for the Future.
Sort of like The Fixx, themselves... visionary, always a step ahead. Kim

Didn't Adam write Chase The Fire?

I think Adam should write more stuff. Because when he does it is pretty top notch.

I can't vote Secret Separation because it was butchered by radio in my 80s digs. I guess the DJs liked it a lot but I'd rather hear One Thing 10 more times than Secret Separation.

Can't Finish is my all time fave from this album. And it's hard to decide which song I like second best. Built or Chase, both great songs. Ok for the positive vibes then: Built For The Future

I'm with you, Guido. Hated to see Can't Finish go down in Round 1. Of the surviving tunes in Round 2, I will pick Secret Separation. Love to sing along with Cy on that one. And you guessed it: he's the one with the much better voice. I'm just along for the ride.

Out of what's left I choose Secret Separation.

11-16-2005, 09:31 AM
Built For The Future.

I would love to be able to vote again on this one, only because Chase the Fire was my first choice and my second choice again. I've recently given this song some major listening time on the REACT CD, and it's just fantastic on there.

Not really how this vote works, but they do this song some major justice on REACT too.

Out of the 3, Id go for Built for the Future, incidentally love the version of it on React, thought it was the original at first lol!

Shame One Look Up isnt in the 2nd shortlist, cos its the best track for me on that album.

This poll ends on February 4.

Please vote if you haven't already.

Only one of these songs will move on to the final round in the Great Fixx Off!.

Will it be Secret Separation or Chase The Fire?

It's a race separated by only a few votes.

Round 2 polls will remain open, however, the Final Round is NOW in progress and is based on total votes present on February 4, 2006.

Chase the Fire.

How can I resist that bass? Oh, my gosh it's wonderful!

08-13-2012, 06:37 AM
I had to pick "Chase the Fire". It's such a sexy song.:love:

06-06-2013, 08:59 PM
When I saw the older voting thread, SS won by a massive massive margin, everyone loves that song... What'd be nice would be a SECOND FAVORITE song contest to clear the way since Separation kills the vote.

------ o.k., new subject, two part question: -----

Is there a random questions thread on the forum where I can squeeze this kind of thing in?

Just wanting to know if Walkabout's Read Btwn the Lines appeared on any other albums. I know Walkabout wasn't the first time I heard it, because I got it loooong after I started collecting Fixx albums.

Glad this post was revived - had not voted yet, so I cast mine for "Chase the Fire" which stands as one of my favorites of all albums (shy of "Outside" however).

Back in 2006, the boys passed through Kansas City and at that time they led off concerts with "Chase the Fire." Tremendous intro song for them - have seen a few of their concerts now and that intro was special. It gave them a chance to get an extended instrumental build-up working for them prior to vocals kicking off, and that funky groove of CTF really set the tone for the evening (people were coming off the rafters and 2nd floor to cram in close).

That would be one recommendation - bring back CTF as a concert intro song, but this time with Dan getting a chance to kick it off.

Built for the Future was my first, then Secret Separation.....
