    1. I'm Life (My fav song from my fav album; blew me away right from the start)
    2. In Suspense (Such mystery to the music; awesome version on Live in the USA)
    3. The Sign of Fire (Also mysterious and sort of scary, too)
    4. Built for the Future (Has Rupert Hine written all over it with that cool loop in the background)
    5. One Thing Leads to Another ('Nuff said)
    6. Subterranean (A lesser band would've screwed this up royally)
    7. Shred of Evidence (Hardly any air in this song, but worked perfectly)
    8. Calm Animals (I saw them for the first time on this tour and they got the crowd so hyped we just about tore the place apart)
    9. Driven Out (Always a killer in concert)
    10. Ocean Blue (I hope they revive this one soon)
    11. Deeper and Deeper (Represents everything good about music in the 80s. A big, rich mix, but not overloaded)
    12. Woman on a Train - 1011 Woodlands version (I love the way they rearrange older material)
    13. Sunshine in the Shade
    14. Are We Ourselves? (The Fixx have a knack for bending pop songs into weird shapes)
    15. Changing (The band also has a knack for sounding like a single person playing all the instruments. Changing might be the best example of this skill)
    16. Rediscover (A hidden gem)
    17. Mayfly (With some radio support, this couldíve been a huge hit)
    18. All About You (Another hidden gem. Too hidden, in fact. We need a Missing Links 2!)
    19. Treasure It (Unique)
    20. Big Wall (The genesis of the Calm Animals album?)
    21. Venture Out (Fun song. Anyone miss Dan Brown as much as I do?)
    22. Shut It Out (More like Shout It Out!)
    23. Outside (Haunting guitar)
    24. Climb the Hill (A real oddball song, but came together perfectly)
    25. Priviledge (Minimal, but with some intricate details here and there)

    Honourable mention goes out to Elected. Love that Sousaphone!

    Exactly two weeks left. I'm sure we got most lists in that we're going to get, but any last minute voters out there, now's the time!

    Keep those lists coming! And thanks to your list we now have a Top 97 going. 3 more songs to get votes, and we'll have a Top 100 Fixx Songs!

    Not going to reveal much, but lets just say as of recent votes, the more famous Fixx songs are making a comeback on this countdown. But it ain't over....

    And btw guys, don't be daunted by these lists. As I said at the beginning, if you only want to list your Top 10 or even Top 5, that's More Than Fine (hey, that's switchfoot, not the Fixx!)

    Okay the lists are slowing down and just think we only need three more songs to make it a Top 100 instead of a Top 50. Anyone who hasn't voted yet, please post a list, even if it's only 5 songs.
