    I can't just fling 25 out there without giving it careful consideration. This challenge requires some thought. I call it a challenge because there are so many faves - to whittle it down to 25 is tough. Give some time on this...List in progress...watch this space

    LOL! It was a copy and paste error, had over 50 songs and had
    to move and delete and though I looked at the list before I posted it, my eyes missed it. I meant to put Lost Planes on 24, so I've fixed now Thanks for spotting it!

    Well, it's funny that a couple of people should mention "Woman On A Train" when I consider that song to be one of my all-time least favorites I guess that's what we can call *diversity* in tastes

    Top 25? How much is enough? Here is my list yesterday, today, and in order...

    1) Happy Landings (I'm well past my full tank of gas...")
    2) Sunshine In The Shade ("every man has a mountain...")
    3) I Will (stronger then ever today...hit me hard then; still does today. Standout from album that helped a teenager at the time)
    4) No Hollywood Ending ("the audience has left")
    5) One Thing Leads To Another (summer of '83...greatness arrives on the radio!)
    6) Secret Separation (classic...should have gone higher on charts)
    7) Opinions (hidden gem grows fonder as the years drift away)
    8) Stand Or Fall (which came first? Red Skies? Either way...I was hooked.)
    9) Are We Ourselves? (who are we?)
    10) Deeper And Deeper (Rock the walls...turn up the volume)
    11) Saved By Zero (overplayed yes...but still adore it today)
    12) Do What You Can (after years...the speakers talk...what discovery!)
    13) The Strain (hit me hard then...hits me hard today. Oram chords)
    14) Walkabout (the rock...)
    15) Running (do we ever stop)
    16) Gypsy Feet (not many mention it...but kept me coming back to hear more)
    17) Red Skies (the beginning...MTV)
    18) Camphor (song just captured you...)
    19) Falling In Love (fell in love as Fixx hash out love song written by others)
    20) Don't Be Scared (Cy's voice soothed comfort into our minds...)
    21) Treasure It (Children are wonderful...song just clicked)
    22) No One Has To Cry (music scene had changed...would have been huge hit years before)
    23) Reach The Beach (live in '83 at Comiskey Park...song stood out)
    24) Phantom Living (strong finish to album that reached my soul)
    25) Precious Stone (really have come to love this song...)

    Take care,

    Mctalg
