The Fix - undecided
Shuttered Room - I Live
Reach the Beach - Outside
Phantoms - Lose Face, Wish, and Facing the Wind
Walkabout - Chase The Fire, Read Between The Lines, Do What You Can,and Built For The Future is too cute video-wise
React - out of the three unique to this album, Don't Be Scared
Calm Animals - Subterranean, The Flow
Ink - Still Around, though there are SO many I like off this
Elemental - You Know Me, Ocean Blue, Happy Landings, Is That It?
Want That Life - Touch, Taking The Long Way Home, Are You Satisfied, You Don't Have To Prove Yourself
Happy Landings - Freeman
Cy Curnin's Mayfly - Mayfly, The Days Of Our Lives, I'm Getting Out, Breathe With Me, I Should Be So Lucky, Unshakable Fairth, Day To Day
New Stuff - Giving Up and Taking The Day Off

And can I just say how much I love All About You - this is an absolute buried treasure. What emotion Cy's voice conveys, and it's just an awesome showcase of the Fixx sound, and that bridge just blows me away. I don't know what it is. This is one of my all time favorites!

While on vacation and driving through the White Mountains of
New Hampshire (where the peaks are so high full of encouragement)
I pulled out a Hidden Gems CD mix I'd made after Lost tracks came out.
These aren't particularly my favorite Fixx songs, but I like "The Flow" of the mix. 75 minutes of pure joy!

Strait Round The Bend
Ocean Blue
In Suspense
Fatal Shore
Facing The Wind
Time In A Glass
Modern World
Are You Satisfied
World Weary
I Will
On Look Up
Taking the Long Way Home
You Know Me
Read Between The Lines
Ships Are Safe In Harbour

Time to make a new one with Everyone believes and Silent House and Phantom Living for starters!

Does anyone else have a Fixx Mixx they'd like to share?
