    For me this one is easy. Taking the Long way Home has always been my fav from this album. On the tour before the release of WTL I heard this song for the first time at the Canyon Club & right then & there I said it was the best time ever hearing a song for the first time. I wish they would have continued keeping it in their song line up. Cy's vocals are amazing!

    want that want that life

    count me in the minority... i love the title track... especially the "i'll shed my load... " part, and the guitar underneath. another part that's also nice is when cy does the low, resonant "need that life" line at the end of the refrain, and jaimie chimes in with his guitar as a follow-up... i think it's pretty damn inspired. i like the circular motion of the song as well. is life a dance that goes in circles? is that what the fixx are asking us? are we going in circles? clever use of music as metaphor, if that was the intent.

    It has to be Taking the long way home for me aswell, gorgeous track, awesome guitar from Jamie and great lyrics from Cy (yet again). I did a poor man's guitar chord interpretation of it on this forum somewhere if anyone would like to look.

    But its a great track, by the far the best off of Want that life.

    Prove

    Prove is the best song here- it demonstrates the tight sound that reviewers of their recent concerts comment about. It would be a great single on contemporary radio as well. Too bad it's not on their tour's setlist. In fact, it's hard to believe they play only one song (Satisfied) from WTL on their tour since it's their most recent compiled effort. This song would be a great addition, especially since it's on the upbeat side.

    I voted for "Are you Satisfied" but "Touch" is such a sexy song. It gets me moving every time I hear it. I am so glad that they are opening with it once again. Thanks guys!

    ah, i dont know... PROVE to me sounds like OTLTA with no direction - it just goes and goes.... never changes - it just sounds like a jam session that was a happy accident... and it worked.... just like OTLTA was!

    Question

    This was a real struggle - but only between Touch & Want That Life. Both tracks are way out ahead for me.

    "Straight Round the Bend", with "No Hollywood Ending", "Are You Satisfied?" and "Touch" coming in close seconds.

    I've used "Roger and Out" to let people who have not heard the Fixx sing in ages, and only remember "Red Skies", which they always loved. Roger gets 'em back in the fold everytime!
    I am the winner in any event.
