    One Thing. It is my favorite guitar riff and tone of all time. It's also the song that got me hooked on The Fixx. I didn't like Saved By Zero until after I heard OTLTA.

    I think it has to be One Thing, cos its the first Fixx track I ever heard and I was instantly hooked by its superb guitar line. So many good tracks here aswell, Running and Outside would be close seconds.

    First off, I'm glad I found this place!!

    Jeez, I picked "Reach", but it's so hard to decide. Front to back, this is one great album. Yes, I'm old...it's an album.

    "Reach the Beach" is my choice here, although it's nearly impossible to pick a track I like "best" from this album. The entire body of work hangs together so well and is best when taken as a whole. However, this track in particular conjures up great feelings every time I hear it - so RtB it is!

    One Thing... always brings me back to when I discovered the Fixx... Hearing those guitar rifts ... just makes me want to jump up and dance like I am 20 again and no one is watching!!!!!!!

    This was a very hard decision to make, because all the songs have a special place, and whenever I listen to the CD each song is instantly my favorite, and then the next song comes on, and then that song is my favorite, ad infinitum.

    I had to finally decide on "Opinions" since it tends to stick in my head the longest after the music stops.

    I tend to quote it a lot too...lol.
    I am the winner in any event.
